Wildlife viewing opportunities abound in Bella Coola.
The Bella Coola Valley supports a truly rich environmental habitat ranging from rivers, estuaries, old-growth forests and provincial parks to mountains, glaciers, waterfalls and more.
A huge number of animals make their homes here, so encounters are common. Check out the fish hatchery or get right in the water and snorkel with the salmon. Take a bear watching tour, and don’t forget to look up to see the area’s diverse bird life.
Salmon and Fish in Bella Coola
For fish fans, the area's rivers and streams are teeming with life. Visit Bella Coola during the right part of summer (mid-July to mid-August) and take a fascinating "Snorkel with the Salmon" tour. Kynoch Adventure Tours equips visitors with wet suits and takes day-trippers right into the water to swim and snorkel with the spawning salmon. Guides are expert river guides and fisheries biologists, and the tour is one of only a couple offered within BC.
