ʔi:mot tətᶿ kʷənome...it's good to see you!
Welcome to Toba Inlet home of the Klahoose First Nation. Our peoples have lived and thrived on these lands, along side our ancestors, the animals and waters since time before memory. Our lands hold a special, sacred place to our community and we are pleased to provide this amazing opportunity for you to witness the bears in their natural habitat and environment.
Upon your arrival, you will be greeted by a member of our Nation who will offer you a traditional prayer and welcome. You will find restrooms and an area designed to shield you from the weather. From this spot, your guide will transport you to one of five viewing towers. Situated several feet from ground level, these viewing platforms are designed to provide an optimal vantage point while maintaining a safe distance from the bears. Our tours are kept intentionally small to allow for the most intimate viewing experience.
No food is permitted in the viewing stations. Bears have an extremely keen sense of smell and such odours may prove invasive. Your guide will provide you will several safety tips at the start of our tour - please take a moment to listen carefully. Your safety is of the utmost importance to us - should you have questions or require further information, do not hesitate to ask.
Footwear for the tours should be close-toed and comfortable. Walking is kept to a minimum, but you will have to manage stairs and or ramps to enter the viewing towers. Dressing in layers will help you adjust to changing conditions. Suntan lotion and bug spray should be applied prior to your tour commencing.
Be sure to visit the Klahoose Coastal Adventures Store for speciality merchandise and commemorative books. Direct to your door shipping can be arranged.
