The coastal grizzly bears along the coast of British Columbia are mostly smaller then their relatives further up north in Alaska. The best time to watch a coastal grizzly bear in spring or early summer is when the tide is out. They come down to the water to look for crabs and other small animals hiding under rocks.
This female grizzly bear had two very cute cubs (pictures will follow) with her, they came down to the beach, rolling around some rocks but they preferred to have a short nap first and let the tide go out a bit further. Mom grizzly bear decided to rest her legs on a rock, it was extremely cute seeing her like this. It was a great bear watching experience following mom with her cubs for a while.
I will show some more of my new bear pictures from the British Columbia coast soon, I got a few to share. By the way, this here is one of the locations we visit on my private custom photo tours.
