We had a great time fishing in Port Hardy. Wade and Shannon are great hosts at Bear Cove Cottages. Lucas is very good as a fishing guide, He makes sure you get to where the fish are. We highly recommend Bear Cove Cottages.

I had a very enjoyable 4 night stay at Bear Cove Cottages. We stayed in cottage #5 with two queen size beds. It was excellent. It had a nice rustic look but still very comfortable. Everything is well maintained. It had a gas fireplace, Jacuzzi, and a nice kitchen area with all the basic kitchen items for cooking. Each cottage... More

We booked this expecting a room with a bed. What we got was a wonderful cottage with a fireplace and deck. You can watch the ferries come and go, or you can see the eagles doing their aerial acrobatics over the cove.Would like to return with the guys for a fishing trip.

It was our first time to Bear Cove Cottages and it exceeded every expectation. The cottages are wonderful - very clean, have all the comfy amenities that we had hoped for and the beds were VERY comfortable. Wade was our guide for 3 days of fishing and we were completely impressed with the quality of the boat and equipment. Wade... More

We recently visited Bear Cove Cottages and had a phenomenal time. Wade and Shannon Dayley have a wonderful resort there that is out of this world. The cottages were exceptional with a view that can only be explained as one of Gods best creations. The fishing trip with Wade was off the hook. Wade and Shannon Dayley are truley honest... More

Wade & Shannon Dayley run a first class operation. All the cottages are beautiful and all have ocean views. Wade is one of the top fishing guides on Vancouver Island. If you want a fishing trip to remember, book a trip to Bear Cove Cottages.
