Bella Coola Valley in BC's Central Coast also has lots of wild Grizzly bears that can bee seen feeding on salmon from August through October. Black bears can be seen from April through November as well, and there are many other wildlife opportunitiesin the area. Bella Coola has access from Vancouver Island on BC Ferries, or you can drive west on Hwy 20 from Williams Lake to Bella Coola Valley.

What a great topic to write about! I think the information is somewhat misleading though. Grizzly bears have never been seen on Gwaii Haanas, or any place on Haida Gwaii, and do not live on the islands. The only bear to be found there is the Haida Gwaii Black Bear (Ursus americanus carlottae). It would have been fantastic if you had included a list and/or description of all seven national parks. For some reason, you just mention three... plus a provincial park.
