Captain Randy Burke Reports Incredible Wildlife from Southeast Alaska!

During communication with the Island Odyssey, Randy shared, with great excitement, some recent highlights of their trip! A humpback breaching right next to the boat for over an hour, 2 sub-adult male bears, wrestling in the estuary at Pack Creek only 25 metres away, orca Mums bringing their curious calves in  for a closer look at the boat as it floated quietly - Amazing!

British Columbia's North Central Coast Awaits!

The Great Bear Rainforest expedition voyages into the remote sheltered estuaries in Fiordland, along the Inside Passage, to hot springs and remote bear viewing areas and it remains as one of our Crew favourites. You can expect to see humpback whales, many species of birds, porpoise, coastal grizzlies, black bears and the iconic Kermode with its cream-coloured coat. Each season we anticipate the arrival of  salmon returning to spawn bringing an abundance of wildlife to this region.
Come and experience it for yourself and learn why people from all over the World are working to protect this incredible wilderness. More trip information here

LNG Pipeline to Pass Through Protected Bear Areas


In 1994, the BC Government established the Khutzeymateen 
Grizzly Bear Sanctuary after recognizing the importance of protecting threatened coastal bear populations in their natural habitat. This is the only park of its kind in Canada with visitors allowed only under permit.

Slide 1 Now and into 2014, Federal and Provincial governments are assessing the Prince Rupert Gas Transmission Project's aim to pipe "sweet natural gas" across BC's rugged terrain through a pipeline measuring 4 feet in diameter.

The 2 km wide "conceptual (pipeline) corridor" will run 750km from Northeastern BC to Prince Rupert and is anticipated to cross 1350 water courses, including the deep-water Inlets of the Khutzeymateen and Work Channel. Construction and operation through these remote areas will affect 250 identified wildlife species - 76  recognized as being species of management concern.
