Attraction details

We booked on the Prince Rupert Adventure Tours book. Not only do you get to see the grizzlies close up but on the trip to the sanctuary, we saw sea lions, whales, eagles. This is a must see and do adventure trip for any age.

We visited on the Prince Rupert Adventure Tours boat, which got us within about 50 feet of two bears on one beach, and 25 feet of bears -- Mom and 2 cubs -- on the second. The bear family stayed in full view of us for about 20 minutes while eating, walking back and forth over the beach, grass and logs. They ignored the quiet boat and people watching, and we're totally natural. It was so awesome. Highly recommend for everyone at all age levels.

We took this trip and it was fabulous. The boat trip to the sanctuary was brilliant and we saw just loads of eagles. But the sanctuary was just knock out. We saw 2 sets of mother bears with their cubs, one of the pairs swam round a fallen tree. They are amazingly graceful for such big creatures. We saw about 7 bears in all. The fjord itself is stunningly beautiful and so peaceful - I could move there right now! Although it seems like a lots of money - actually it's real value for money as it's a long boat trip and a full day and the crew work very hard to make it brilliant - and they succeed.

We have been together with Dan Wakeman from Sunchaser Charters 3 days in the Khutzeymateen Sanctuary end of August. This was one of the most interesting sites we have ever been after many times in Africa, Australia, Asia,.... This is pure nature. Silence and nature. Dan is a very remarkable person and passionate for his bears and the Sanctuary. People like him make the difference. He is most friendly host, captain and guide. He spent many hours with us in the field always working out best photo situations. Thanks again Dan for these remarkable days and hopefully you can protect the Sanctuary for many more years!

Worth the Money although not cheap. Takes nearly the whole day and they do not hurry to get you back for the next trip.
