Join Raincoast on an incredible sailing journey

A conservation update from the Great Bear Rainforest

Fall 2010 voyage into the land of the Spirit Bear

From Brian Falconer, Raincoast’s Captain of Achiever

Wouldn’t it feel good to know that while you’re having a great time, you’re also supporting a great cause?

We would like to invite you on an extraordinary voyage. Journey with Raincoast into the heart of spirit bear country to experience one of the world’s rarest bears and build support for their protection at the same time.Raincoast now has limited space available on two trips this fall designed to raise awareness about the purchase of a new commercial hunting tenure, as well as fulfill our “hunting obligations” within our existing guide outfitting territory. These trips all occur at the height of the salmon spawning season and present a spectacular opportunity to see bears. The voyage dates are:

Monday September 13 – Sunday, September 19, 2010

Monday, September 20 – Sunday, September 26, 2010

The expedition will be undertaken aboard our sailing vessel, Achiever. The tour starts and ends in Bella Bella, BC from which we will explore river valleys, photograph bears, experience whales, wolves and wilderness throughout our existing guide outfitting territory and within the new guide outfitting territory we intend to acquire.

Trip details:

  • Each expedition includes 6 nights aboard Achiever.
  • All meals and food are included, as is wine with dinner.
  • Special eating requests are easily accommodated with advance notice.
  • All trips are guided by trained professionals such as our Captain, Brian Falconer and our licensed Guide Outfitter, Rocky Ashton.
  • You will need warm and waterproof clothing including rubber boots.
  • Expedition Cost is $3,500 CDN per person.
  • Costs for travel to and from Bella Bella, as well as arranging travel to and from Bella Bella, are the responsibility of expedition participants.

Raincoast’s in-house scientists, collaborating graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and professors make us unique among conservation groups. We work with First Nations, academic institutions, government, and other NGOs to build support and inform decisions that protect aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems, and the wildlife that depend on them. We conduct ethically applied, process-oriented, and hypothesis-driven research that has immediate and relevant utility for conservation deliberations and the collective body of scientific knowledge.

We investigate to understand coastal species and processes. We inform by bringing science to decision-makers and communities. We inspire action to protect wildlife and wildlife habitats.
