Today, guests on board National Geographic Venture awoke in the pristine waters of the Great Bear Rainforest. We had the pleasure of meeting up with Marven Robinson, a true local from a First Nations People. He offered us a unique experience on a platform that he built with his own two hands. This platform was designed to view black bears up close and personal. To reach the platform, we went on a half-mile hike through a dense alder forest along an old logging road. Although we did not see a spirit bear today, we did see a beautiful black bear! In the afternoon, we spotted a couple black bears near a set of falls.
