The West Coast of Canada is among the most picturesque places in the world. Winding fiords carry Pacific Ocean waters from the Queen Charlotte Strait into the heart of British Columbia’s Coast Mountain range. Towering cedar, spruce and fir forests line the shores.
Humpback and orcas, Dall’s porpoise and Pacific white-sided dolphin roam these waters. Brandt’s cormorants nest on rocky shores, harlequin ducks bob in the sheltered coves, and Steller’s sea lions lounge on rocks.
And in the woods, grizzlies, black bears, and wolves prowl. This is the Great Bear Rainforest, the world’s largest intact temperate rainforest.
Royal Canadian Geographic Society photographer Mike Beedell will be leading a visit to the Great Bear Rainforest, this September aboard the 68 ft sailing vessel, Island Odyssey. His guests will enjoy the trip of a lifetime to one of Canada’s most magical places.
