Cruise the Great Bear Rainforest 

A custom ecotour multi-day charter on  46' yacht the 'Pacific Lure' takes you on a voyage through the Great Bear Rainforest.

The Great Bear Sea and surrounding areas supports an abundance of wildlife. Milbanke Sound and the Discovery Passage are heavily populated with Humpback Whales and Orcas (killer whales) - so expect ultimate whale watching

Embark on an exclusive coastal journey in to the rainforest in search of grizzly, spirit bears Kermode or Spirit Bear (White mutation of the Black Bear) in their summer habitat. Truly a special spiritual place that beckons with the allure of the ancient, wild and mystery. First Nations people settled here from the beginning of time and have helped make Shearwater what it is today. Go off grid and experience incredible views with our expertly guided treks through the Rainforest. Dip into Hot Springs with endless vistas of the Coastal Mountain Range as the area resonates with the chirps of Bald Eagles.

Arriving in Bella Bella, passengers board the Shearwater flagship Pacific Lure and meet their captain and crew and then set out on a journey into the beautiful wilds of the Great Bear Rainforest in the Central Coast of British Columbia.

The captain will set course for the first leg of your groups 120 mile (192kms) round trip - bear watching seeking out (Grizzly, Black, & Kermode/Spirit ) and whale watching, seeking out marine life (Whales, Dolphins, Sea Lions, and Seals) along the way. While out on the water, why not try your hand at a little fishing for Salmon, Halibut, Crab, or even Spot Prawns!

Subject to weather conditions, the first leg could be 60 miles to Surf Inlet area of the southern end of Princess Royal Island, and if weather isn’t quite conducive to a long initial journey (7.5hrs) then the captain will opt to break up the leg over two days. But not to fret, there are lots of activities to experience along the way! There is no shortage of fun and excitement on this adventure.

If the weather is conducive to make it to Surf Inlet on the first day then the yacht will remain in the Surf Inlet area for 3-4 days of exploring the river systems and area in search of the elusive Spirit Bear while taking in all of the amazing wildlife the Great Bear Rainforest has to offer.
