Accomodation is basic, but everything you need is provided. Nice and clean. We had the room downstairs, which means you have to use a shared bathroom. Not very convenient. Rooms upstairs and the cabin have private bathrooms. But that's enough about the lodge. If you want luxury, go to the Maldives. It's all about nature here. And that is what... More

Met on arrival at the dock and shown to our cabin which was right on the waters edge what a view. The whole experience was professional, fun and informative with excellent food to top it all. The amount of bears, seals , whales and eagles we saw was unbelievable couldn't have been any better. Would recommend this trip to everyone

We were able to swap our estuary trip for further whale watching where we had a huge orca pass right under our boat! Bear watching excellent even if the salmon were a... More

Lodge was spotlessly clean which gave us an indication how the operators ran the place. Small Lodge, only 10 people on our visit.Bears,whales in abundance.Food was excellent, the guides were knowledgeable and very enthusiastic. A very good experience all round.

If you're interested in wildlife this should not be missed! The lodge, which only sleeps up to 10, is ideally situated on Minstrel Island in Knight Inlet giving easy access to the seaward part of the inlet for watching orca, whales and dolphin but also to the rivers to see grizzlies and salmon leaping. We went out with Angus and... More
