Pacific Coastal Cruises unveils a new concept in travel, cruising by day and lodges by night, with an opportunity to cruise some of the best known waterways of the Pacific Northwest during daylight hours, with overnight accommodation at a variety of remote and comfortable, shore side lodges and resorts.
A study in rustic refinement, the Pacific Bear, affectionately known as “Our Little Blue Boat,” offers from two to four night departures and exclusive charters in globally renowned Desolation Sound and the Gulf Islands of British Columbia.
Our Desolation Sound Wilderness Cruise is a Destination Canada Canadian Signature Experiences, a collection of once-in-a-lifetime travel experiences found only in Canada.
Bear Watching Viewing Tours are operated in partnership with the Klahoose First Nation, whose traditional territory encompasses the Toba Valley. Bear Watching Tours depart Homfray Lodge with a cruise to Toba Inlet. Upon arriving at the river, you will receive a warm and traditional welcome from the Klahoose Coastal Adventures guides. A short drive will transport you to the viewing areas where you can see the bears in their natural habitat from both raised and open viewing platforms. The highlight of the tour will be the chance to view the grizzly bears feeding in the natural habitat along the river. Grizzly Bear Viewing Tours, with stays at Homfray Lodge, operate from August to October.
