Search for the legendary all-white spirit bear, and humpback whales deep in the Fiordland Conservancy in British Columbia. Travelling on a small yacht, explore the vast wilderness of the Great Bear Rainforest and its maze of fjords, estuaries and islands.

Surrounded by spectacular rock faces and waterfalls, this small ship adventure visits the largest remaining area of coastal rainforest on the Pacific coast; a complex maze of forested islands and waterways overlooked by towering mountains. Black, grizzly and honey-coloured Kermode, or spirit bears, feed on the salmon each summer and you may also see humpback whales. Daily shore excursions are lead by the onboard naturalist guide, using the vessel's sea-kayaks and visiting traditional communities.
