Thank you so much. I will pass the praise for the food on to Madeline. The wildlife viewing is the reason that most people visit us (for obvious reasons), however the seaplane ride is certainly a scenic and memorable experience in itself.

Started our 3 week holiday here and failed to appreciate at the time that it would be the highlight of the trip, beating an Alaska cruise hands down. The lodge is small catering for up to 10 guests only (8 on our visit) which, depending...More

Thank you for sharing your experience. I'm glad that you were able to get some close up wildlife encounters on your trips. Hope to see you again one day

You arrive here by float plane (an awesome experience, with views of islands and wilderness below). When we landed at the lodge, the day was clear and the view was beautiful. The guides are friendly and knowlegeable (we liked Kevin) and the excursions are limited...More

Thank you for all your kind words. I'm glad you enjoyed the small group atmosphere. We feel that is one of our biggest assets. All the best

This were by far the the best days on our 4 weeks vacation tour in BC&Alberta. Extraordinary friendly staff, especially Glenn as our guide. He made these days so special with his knowledge about marine wildlife. We appreciate his handling with animals and safety for...More

Yes, particularly for luggage. Think it is about 20 or 25 kg.

Yes you would both be able to see the animals. Booking well in advance also allows you pick and choose your dates. We are a small lodge, so our busy times do fill up well in advance.
