I decided to go solo and discovered this magical place. From the moment you step off the boat you feel welcome. Tim met us with some coffee and snacks and off we went to explore. I was lucky enough to experience a spirit bear and her cub from a distance of 10 feet, something I will never forget! There was... More

we stayed the five night option and were so lucky to see the spirit bears on two occasions. We saw grizzlies and humpback whales on other excursions, walking the 'wolf trail' one day and kayaking on our last day. The main attraction was to see the elusive spirit bears. We certainly did that. Tim has made this an excellent place... More

We stayed at the Spirit bear Lodge for seven nights. We loved every second of it! The rooms are great, the food is delicious, the service is excellent and the people running the lodge are friendly, competent, experienced, knowledgeable, and professional. I felt like I was "home" the whole time I was there. The daily excursions are fantastic. We were... More

Stayed for 2 nights. Staff were brilliant and we had multiple close encounters with bears and humpback whales. The stay in shearwater was nice but not the point of the trip. Also if you don't like noise ask for a room on the top floor (there are no carpets, so the ground floor hear lots of stamping around)

We took their 5 day package and were delighted with the trip. I went from never havong seen a wild Grizzly Bear to having seen 6 the first day! Just abour everythiing I thought I knew about them proved wrong! Submissive behaviour is decidedly contraindicated. I never dreamed, for instance, that the proper way to deal with a mother with...

Tom S thanks very much for your feedback. You definitely struck gold with the Spirit Bear sightings. Typically about 50% of our guests will see a Spirit Bear. For reasons we are still trying to determine, 2014 was exceptional for us in terms of our Spirit Bear viewing success. Our success rate in 2014 was closer to 85%. No doubt... More

We were advised to book a minimum 5 night package in order to be rewarded with seeing the spirit bear so we booked SBL6. Fantastically organised, on a personal daily basis, to give the greatest opportunity of seeing the bears - we had close (very close),encounters with a spirit bear, a black bear & a grizzly (as well as seeing...

We wanted something special for our 26th wedding anniversary and we got it. We embarked on our trip to SBL having decided that if we were fortunate to see an elusive spirit bear it would be an added bonus. We wanted to really experience the rain forest, the animals and the culture of the Kitasoo/Xaixais people. We were at SBL... More

Our visit to the Spirit Bear Lodge was a fantastic experience. The day we arrived at the Lodge we were standing on the front deck about to start our first bear-viewing excursion, and watched a humpback whale swim through the channel 50 metres from us. What a great start. Each day that we were at the Lodge a full day... More

After travelling for a few weeks through British Columbia and Alaska we hoped our trip to Spirit Bear Lodge and a possible glimpse of the Spirit Bear, would be the icing on the cake. Wow and was it ever!!! We were privileged to see this beautiful and elusive creature three separate times in one day. We were also treated to... More
