Bear Watching

May 5 2019

Bear watching often means an early morning departure, today it was well worth it because we found this sow and her two very young cubs.

Bear watching is best with a low tide, it is possible to see black bears foraging along the shore for crab, oysters, grubs and in the spring tender grass shoots.

A long overdue Update everyone.

August 2017 was good & bad for Beachcomber Ocean Tours. We had 2 weeks of adventures & happy customers then on August 17th we had total engine failure, unfortunate for many of our customers who were looking forward to tours to see wildlife & the magical waters of Barkley Sound. 
Going forward we are excited to be up and running again & the MV Blackfish has been re-powered with a Volvo Penta D6 330. This is state of the art in new diesel engine technology combining superior performance with reduced exhaust emissions, high reliability and increased fuel efficiency.  Thank You to Advanced Marine Power, Campbell River for your excellent service.
We are Looking forward to 2018 please joins us on our next Adventure!
