Spirit Bears September 21-28, 2018
Limited to 7 participants (Full)
Arrive Kittamat/Terrace, BC 9/20, depart for home from Kittamat/Terrace, BC 9/28
This year will include 3 days at our remote river location frequented by Spirit bears. We will photograph the bears up-close and personal, as they fish and patrol the river for salmon. Many images can be taken with a 70-200/100-400.
Join Award winning Master photographer Charles Glatzer, for an unparalleled photographic encounter with spirit, black, and brown bears. Having hosted over 60 bear workshops to date Chas extensive knowledge of bear behavior translates into better imagery for the participant. Knowing what to look for ahead of time can often mean the difference in capturing a mediocre image, or the image of a lifetime. This will be our 7th trip for Spirit bears, each trip has proven amazing.
Using our exquisitely maintained 71 ft sailing vessel as a base we explore salmon creeks and rivers in Coastal BC to photograph the Spirit, Black bear and the Coastal Grizzly Bear in a remote wilderness area away from crowds. The photographic opportunities are amazing. This trip will give you access to some of the best bear viewing locations in the world! The fall is a time of plenty and marine mammals such as the humpback whale are a common sight. To maximize our chances of a Spirit Bear, we will utilize native built viewing platforms in certain situations. We will also explore estuaries and bays, and watch the remarkable feat of salmon spawning. This is a multi-faceted trip, focusing not only on the Spirit Bears but also on the entire ecosystem in which they thrive. We will use our vessel as a base, and a motorized inflatable to transfer people between the boat and the shore.
To ensure the best instruction, bear interaction, and comfort aboard our vessel this workshop will be limited to a maximum of 7 participants.
