It would seem as though Lenore is having second thoughts, questioning her philandering promiscuity of yesteryear and seriously reconsidering her hormonal decision to breed with not one, but FIVE males as recent as last spring.  Since their emergence some days ago, it is very apparent that the cubs have one thing on their bear brains and one thing only:  wrastlin’ with each other and exploring the fascinating world beyond the den.  Although extremely entertaining for the rest of us, poor Lenore is bound to a 27 month commitment, ensuring that the kids are safe and sound with many milky meals each day and a roof (of sorts?) over their heads.

In other ursus news, Bella has been observed spending alone time with a mysterious ‘bearded’ bear.  Despite his distinguished appearance however, at times it looks as though Bella wants nothing to do with the handsome bruin.  Is she just playing hard-to-get or are his aggressive late night bear hugs proving to be too much for this former model Mother turned Jezebel?!

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.

    Derek and Daryl are such fun and educated guides who definitely helped to make our wildlife experience that much richer.
    After first seeing Peanut and knowing how far he had travelled,it was then a thrill to see 12 bears in all: Bella, The Bearded Boar, 2 three year olds of Bella, Kinky and her 3 cubs, plus 3 black bears, porpoise and dolphins, elk and deer, eagles,and ducks. The ocean was cooperative and the boat extremely durable. Our breakfast and lunch was more than enough and delicious.
    We will certainly reccommend others to take the tours both marine and bears.

    I have many good photos of the day and will share some of my better shots.
    cheers and thanks again for a marvellous opportunity to meet the Grizzlies.

    Thanks Jill and Tim! It was a fun day and we are happy you were able to join us. Just a note, that on this particular day we did see 12 bears in all, this sometimes does not happen. It is very consistant viewing at this time of the year. Tide Rip Grizzly Tours knows where the bears are and we can take you there.
