Exploring By Jet Boat
With a jet boat we can take you to some of the highlights of The North directly from our lodge. Feel the exhilaration and wind in your hair as you glide through these scenic waterways or go slowly, and spot wildlife on the riverbanks. Simply choose the tour you wish, or let us custom-design the ultimate excursion for your group. All jet boat tours include a guide and all necessary safety equipment.
Skeena River Tributaries and Waterfalls Tour
Jet boat up wild and rugged untouched river valleys surrounded by towering mountain peaks and cascading waterfalls. Enjoy a walk to a waterfall plunge pool. Watch out for wildlife as they could be around any corner in the river. We can do some footprint casting of wolves or grizzly bears as a keepsake to take away! Enjoy a campfire lunch on a remote gravel as your guide recounts the history of Northern BC. There are many options for jet boating on the Skeena River and its tributaries.
Grizzly Bear Viewing Tour
Let us take you to remote coastal estuaries to view Grizzly Bears eating the high protein plant “Lyngby Sedge” or to rivers where they chase salmon in the shallow waters. Bear viewing is best from May – Mid July in the coastal estuaries and August – October in the rivers. All viewing is done from the safety of a Jet Boat.
Our coastal estuaries tours access the Pacific Ocean near Prince Rupert and often take in other marine wildlife like Humpback whales, sea lions, porpoises and dolphins.
Late May – Mid July Bear Viewing in Estuaries
August to October – Bear Viewing in Rivers
