About Homalco Wildlife & Cultural Tours
We have been the stewards of the grizzly bear population in Homalco's traditional territory of Bute Inlet for over a decade, but the cultural and historical significance of this area spans thousands of years. Our guided bear tours take guests through the Bute Inlet and along the Orford River, where grizzly bear populations thrive during the salmon run. We also offer marine wildlife, and cultural tours, all of which are interwoven with knowledge from our traditional way of life. Our commitment to our guests is to share our traditional lands, to share perspective from our people, and to create a sense of connection with our indigenous culture. We welcome you to view the bears, learn about our connection to the land and wildlife, and become immersed in the beauty of the inlet. ʔiymot kʷunome (It is good to see you).
