Great Bear Rainforest for 2014

The Great Bear Rainforest photo-tour is a go again this year! Mark your calendar dates, June 7th to the 12th of 2014.  This is a very beautiful and remote area of the Northern British Columbia Coast known as Fjordland, and for good reason, the granite cliffs that rise out of the sea sure make you seem infinitesimal, waterfalls draining off the top of these monsters cascade into mist before hitting the ocean far below,  a place where nature rules!   Last year we were visited with Wolves, Griz, and Whales, we had great weather for picnics on remote sandy beaches and a minus tide that rivaled the inter-tidal colors of Burnaby Narrows in Haida Gwaii.  All this centered around great fun in a supported and encouraging learning environment.   Last year’s tour sold out quickly with only ten spots available. For further information contact Ross or Miray by going to their website www.mothershipadventures.com or email  at info@mothershipadventures.com
