In 2010, Bluewater Adventures added the North Coast/ Khutzeymateen to its quiver of adventures. It is a part of the BC coast that has intrigued Bluewater Skippers for years.

The outer Islands provide habitat for marine life like humpback whales and orca, porpoise and sea lions. Heading inland towards the very remote Khutzeymateen Grizzly Bear Sanctuary guests prepare for some of the best grizzly bear viewing on the coast. Few operators are permitted to explore this region boasting Canada's only grizzly bear sanctuary and we want to share it with you.

Join Captain Randy Burke and Bear Specialist, Dr Barrie Gilbert for this unique opportunity and be one of the few to experience it first!

Day 6 - From fiord-like Portland Canal, we now return to the outer islands and lower topography of Chatham Sound. This is prime whale feeding area!
Day 7 - We return through Venn Passage to Prince Rupert. Venn Passage has a collection of ancient petroglyphs – native rock carvings – including the famous ‘Man who fell from heaven’. Accompanied by a local Tsimshian Guide, we plan to see these ancient carvings and learn of their history. We will tie up in Prince Rupert by midday.
