Magnificent Grizzly Bears
There are about 50 grizzlies protected by the no-hunting restrictions of the sanctuary. The protected area has recently expanded to include the entire Inlet as the Khutzeymateen Conservancy. Only a select number of Operators are permitted to access the Sanctuary, providing a very intimate bear viewing experience.
First Nations Culture
Tshimshian First Nations have lived in this area for thousands of years. There are two villages along our route; Lax Kw’alaams was once a Hudson Bay Company trading post called Fort Simpson and Metlakatla, which became a model Christian community under Reverend Duncan during late 1800’s.
The waters of the North Coast are frequented by a variety of marine mammals, such as seals, sea lions, humpback whales and the infamous orca, or killer whale.
This area has a very rich and varied bird population. You’ll be amazed at the number of bald eagles, ravens and various species of gulls that gather at the estuaries to feed on the spawning salmon. A variety of other birds, such as the common merganser, black oystercatcher, American dipper, and Steller jays are also common visitors of the rainforest rivers
