Day 1

 Lund, BC, Embarkation.  

 Lund is located at the tip of the Sunshine Coast and is gateway to Desolation Sound. Welcome reception and meet the crew as we set off from the quaint village of Lund. Cruising north into Desolation Sound, we will pass Desolation Sound Provincial Marine Park, a haven for boaters and kayakers with its calm waters and sheltered anchorages. As we leave the boaters behind, we cruise into Homfray Channel, one of the deepest in North American and flanked by towering peaks, including the majestic Mount Denman (1920 m, 6299 ft straight up from the sea).  

 In the evening, we reach Homfray Lodge, nestled in the remote wilderness of Desolation Sound, where we meet the staff and enjoy our meals prepared by the lodge’s chef.  

 Overnight at Homfray Lodge

Day 2

 Grizzly Bear Viewing Tours depart Homfray Lodge with a cruise to Toba Inlet, on the edge of the Great Bear Rainforest. Upon arriving at the river, you will receive a warm and traditional welcome from the Klahoose First Nation guides. A short drive will transport you to specifically designed viewing areas where you will spend about 3 hours with the bears in their natural habitat, from raised and covered viewing platforms along the remote wilderness river. The highlight of the tour will be the chance to view the grizzly bears feeding on salmon in the natural habitat. Our grizzly bear tours are limited to 12 guests for an intimate experience and less impact on the bears.  

After having lunch onboard, return to Homfray Lodge in the afternoon with time to relax on the lodge's expansive dock as the chef prepares your dinner.
