It’s officially official! This time it’s for realsies! Rainforest floozy Lenore has succumbed to ‘spring fever’ once again, abandoning the company of loving daughters Sitka and Cedar in pursuit of yet another seasonal fling. Frankly, it shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone. Lest we forget that it was at this very time last year, Lenore was voted ‘Worst Sow of 2013’ for having pulled similar shenanigans whereby she bid farewell to her progeny, if only temporarily and fully a year premature, to effectively disrupt ongoing makeup sex between Abraham and Kinky (FYI: they had a battle grandé in 2012)?! Now however it would seem that Lenore is sole bearer of induced ovulation courtesy of a very large, dark and mysterious boar indeed. Both Sitka (seen above) and Cedar refused to comment on their mother’s promiscuous behaviour.

As well in recent days past, Tiderippers were thrilled, if not a little uneasy, when quite unexpectedly the young male that has been lingering about took it upon himself to swim over to the dock during lunch! (gulp) Oh! Surprise! Surprise! It was actually an active chase by prima donna Lenore that instigated the forced evacuation and drove the nervous subadult into the water in the first place. Fortunately at the last second, the bear altered course under a hail of shutter fire and swam across the entire Cove with muted applause and cheering in his wake.

Grizzly bears and black bears, deer and wolves, eagles and an amazing array of seabirds, there’s always something to see on a Tide Rip Grizzly Tour!!!

We depart at 0700am daily from historic Telegraph Cove bound for the spectacular Knight Inlet by covered water taxi, complete with onboard washroom. Cost starts at $319 per adult for this all day excursion and includes a light breakfast, healthy lunch and knowledgeable Guides.

    We went on a Tide Rip Tour last summer and saw 10 incredible Grizzlies. It was fantastic!

    We want to come back in the next few months & wanted to know when the mating season ends. We seem to remember the guide telling us that the best time to view mating drama is between the beginning of May to the end of June. Is this correct?

    Please clarify when the grizzlies mating season is. Thank you.

    You bet! The mating bonanza is occurring as we speak! And you’re absolutely right, if the past is any indication of what one’s to expect, the curtains close come the end of June. Thanks for the inquiry!
