If you like cascading waterfalls of all shapes and sizes then the “Jet Boat Photography Tour” will not disappoint. Your senses will go into overload as we round every corner on the river. Waterfalls cascade from every notch and cliff high above the boat. we also stop at afew spots to get those “creamy” slow mo photo opportunities.
Coastal wolves are abundant but elusive as we did not have an opportunity to photograph any but we did do some wolf foot print casting on some fresh tracks up one of the remote rivers we visit. Everyone in the group gets an opportunity to make their own cast of a foot print and take home this unique keepsake.
One day of our Jet Boat tour is specifically targeting the photographing of Coastal Estuary Grizzly Bears. We jet out to a remote estuary in search of feeding grizzly bears. The bears come out late May and June to feed on the sedge grasses of the estuary. We will also be on the lookout for other marine mammals and wildlife enroute. At the end of the day we will jet boat up another river.
All five nights of our Jet Boat Photography Tour and three nights of our Ghost Towns of Northwest BC will be spent at the magnificent Yellow Cedar Lodge. The lodge is just a few minutes outside of Terrace BC on the banks of the Skeena River. All of our dinners and breakfasts will be served here as well. Red Seal Chef Alf Leslie will provide gourmet dinners int he beautiful Yellow Cedar Dining Hall. We will depart each morning for our next adventure from the lodge. The lounge area in the lodge will be the location for our evening social and guest presentations.
This photo was taken on the first day of the trip last year with the entire group. We had only boated up 5-10 km or so up this amazing river and got out to take some photos of the waterfalls and snow fields that come right down to the shore of the river in JUNE!
