THE KNIGHT INLET AREA IS A TRUE WEST COAST ADVENTURE WITH GREAT TOWERING MOUNTAINS

Knight Inlet cuts eighty miles through the remote

Coast Range of Mountains to the head of Knight

 Inlet, and Mt. Waddington, the highest mountain

 located totally within British Columbia.

To the west of this vast wilderness area is Kingcome

 Inlet, Tribune Channel, Bond Sound, Thompson

 Sound, Fife Sound, and numerous other sounds

 and channels.

Islands in the region include Gilford, Village,

Turnour, Minstrel and Cracroft Islands.

 

The Knight Inlet area is a true west coast adventure,

 with great towering mountains rising straight out

of the sea, cascading waterfalls and waterslides,

 and a history rich in native culture.

Covering the central and north coast of British

Columbia, from Knight Inlet to the Alaskan border,

 the Great Bear Rainforest contains the largest

 tract of contiguous ancient temperate rainforest

 left on Earth.

 

This temperate rainforest supports Canada’s

largest grizzly bears, the rare white spirit bear and

 thousands of genetically unique races of Pacific

 salmon.

Knight Inlet is prime black bear and grizzly bear

 habitat, bald eagles, orcas and other wildlife are

 abundant, fishing is superb, and the river system

 supports a phenomenal fall salmon run.

 

Needless to say, the opportunities for nature

 photography in Knight Inlet are superb.

Tucked deep in the towering Coast Mountains is

Grizzly Bear Lodge And Safari, a premier bear

 and wildlife viewing lodge.

 

Location: Accessible only by boat or float plane,

 the mostly uninhabited Knight Inlet is located

 due north of Johnstone Strait and the

small communities of Telegraph Cove and

 Sayward / Kelsey Bay on Vancouver

 Island.

Two hours by speedboat from Telegraph Cove

 or a  half-hour floatplane flight from

 Campbell River  over the islands dotting scenic

 Johnstone Strait drops visitors into the heart of the

 Knight Inlet wilderness.

Campbell River on Vancouver Island is accessible

from the Vancouver and Victoria International

Airport.
