Bears and Wolves!

West Coast Aquatic Safaris guests got a rare view this morning while out on a bear watch. The ever elusive gray wolves made an appearance! There was a pack of six that were seen on Meares Island and our guests were thrilled to see them. It is not very often that we get to see these animals. You can sometimes hear them in the distance but to see a whole pack out was incredible!

On top of seeing wolves our guests also got to see several black bears. The black bears were walking along the shoreline looking for crabs and our guests were able to get close up and get some great views. The bear watching will be coming to an end mid September as the black bears head to the rivers for the salmon. So if you are planning a trip to see the black bears don't wait too long!

The whales are still out and giving our guests a great show. Whale season goes on longer than the bear season and West Coast Aquatic Safaris will be continue doing whale tours in to November. So come out on a tour on WASCO and see all the beautiful wilderness Tofino has to offer.
