This was the absolute highlight of the trip, I can’t believe I took this picture in the wild!
After viewing the owl we started to head out into the bay to view the Belugas but again the keen eye of our guide spotted a Mama Polar Bear with her two cubs! One cub was on the shore and the mom and other cub were swimming.
They come out of the water and we watch as they walk along the shore.
They stop to nurse from mom!
Now this next series of pictures tells a cute story, we all laughed watching the one tired cub lay on the rock.
‘But mom I don’t want to climb up here, I’m too tired from my swimming lesson”
This will show you how close we were to the bears on the boat.
They walk away behind the outcrop and then I notice her peeking out at us. “Haven’t they left yet?”
This encounter with the cubs was a really highlight of the trip. I wasn’t expecting to see any bears and to capture pictures of this experience was beyond anything I had hoped for.
New post the beluga whales!
