That’s right! You heard it here first. Lenore has made an untimely exit to stage left, leaving her defenceless twins to fend for themselves while she instead entertains the company of an elusive but otherwise tall, dark and handsome stranger of the estuary. Furthermore, our inside sources have indicated that there is reason to believe that it’s the same hairy devil witnessed to have won over the heart of our dear Kinky last week?! Oh the drama! Who IS this horribilus ursus and from what den did he crawl out of? Has this sentient animal no shame?

Having just reported last week about what role model 2nd year kids they are, this sudden and very unexpected turn of events begs all kinds of questions? Will the girls have the intuition and skill required to make it in this big, bad bear world despite being short changed a full year of parental care and education? In the absence of a responsible adult, who shall teach them how to fish, arguably thee most important life skill a coastal bear can learn? Although we at Tide Rip are all devastated, left with more questions than answers and wishing the very best for the cubs, we’re not here to judge, merely privileged to observe.

Currently, Tide Rip is investigating the legalities of adopting the cubs but admittedly at this point it doesn’t look promising. We’re from different worlds after all and the logistics of teaching bears how to drive boats and entertain guests from abroad, all the while resisting the temptation to eat all the…….(gulp) cookies, is easier said than done!

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.

Please call toll free 1.888.643.9319 or local 250.928.3090 to book your grizzly bear tour.

    Wow, It’s so great to have an update on the bears. I’m so excited about our trip in Sept/Oct.
    I need to book the trips now.

    Can’t wait to meet you all

    Oh nooooo! We did our tour May 19, my daughter Leah and I, and had such wonderful closeup viewing of Lenore and her two girl cubs. Is the abandonment final or do bear moms ever come back to the kids after the infatuation wears off? I feel so sad to think the cubs we saw are in trouble, and hope something good happens for them.

    Unfortunately, it looks as though it’s final. On more than one occasion the cubs have attempted to reconcile their differences with their estranged mother to no avail. But stay tuned! The plot has thickened!
