Great food, day trips, accommodation & company. Love to get back there one day. Seeing grizzly bears up close & from the stands, where there was only the 5 of us on the small stand & then seeing the crowd jostling on the large stand - so glad I chose Sailcone's & they did a great deal for me, being...

We (3 family members) have just completed a 4 night stay at the Sailcone grizzly bear lodge. What a simply amazing time. Our time was split equally between whale watching and encountering grizzly bears. The whale watching was brilliant. Great views of both orca and humpback whales. On our last day instead of splitting the day up seeing the orcas... More

Our family stayed recently and I don't think it matters how long you stay you want to stay longer. The whole experience starts with the Float plane flight out to the Lodge. The scenery is stunning and my son was wrapped as he got to sit next to the pilot. We were met by Angus the moment we stepped off... More

I spent four days at this amazing place right in the Canadian wilderness, and these days were easily some of the best of my life! The combination of peace and quiet, the stunning setting of the lodge right by the inlet, the welcoming and experienced staff and guides, the delicious food, the comfort of the rooms and - of course...

We have just returned home from a month in BC and have to say that the couple of days we spent here was the highlight of our trip. We wanted to see wildlife up close and we got it in spades. The first full day we were there we went on a whale watching trip in a small speedboat on... More

I spent the last 5 days at Heaven on Earth! My goal was to see wildlife and I achieved that goal the moment I landed. Before dinner we take a short boat ride and encountered a black bear. During the next 4 days the experienced guides sought out and found more bears...(black and grizzlies with their cubs), wolves, eagles, orcas,... More

You start with a float plane trip - awesome views across the island, mainland, straights and inlets. The lodge is small/friendly/cosy and delightful. Food always good - picnic lunch soo impressive. Bedrooms a little small but you don't spend much time there. Mainly you are out on the water looking for wildlife. As it was June we were looking for... More

There were many 'firsts' for us on this trip! First time in a float plane - what a great experience that was. First time on an island in British Columbia - what beautiful scenery. First time seeing Grizzly Bears - fantastic views and a lot less commercialised than other operators - small groups and our own viewing platform. But what... More

We visited Grizzly Bear Lodge in September 2007 after finding out when was the "best" time to see lots of bears. I am fortunate to have experienced some wonderful wildlife trips and there is no doubt that this one was truly amazing. The flight over by float plane and the delicious welcoming seafood meal, the very comfortable lodge set back... More
