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

My wife and I spent 4 nights/3 days fishing with Wade at Bear Cove Cottages/Wicked Salmon. Every aspect of our stay was exactly what we were expecting. The cottage had a superb view and was super clean, fresh, and comfortable. I've never had any fishing capt. work harder and have as much fun as Wade did on our three outings.... 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.

My two sons and I recently returned from our fishing trip at Bear Cove Cottages near Port Hardy, British Columbia, Canada. We thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of our experience from booking the trip, checking in, the amazing cabin overlooking the ocean to the clean and well maintained and organized boat and to Wade's expertise in finding our fill of fish....

We really enjoyed our stay at the Bear Cove Cottages. Beautiful cottages, perfect for couples looking for a really relaxing time. Big window overlooks an outside deck with great views of the ocean. Makes for a stunning setting for eating, drinking or just enjoying a good book. Caught ourselves enjoying that several times. Modern and equipped kitchen and our own... More

Travelled up to Port Hardy with the family and friends for some hiking and fishing at the end of June. Stayed for 3 nights at Bear Cove Cottages, which were perfect in every way. The cabin we stayed in had a large bunk bed for the kids and plenty of room for us in a comfy Queen. The cabins were... More

These self-contained cottages are tastefully decorated with a west coast flavour. An outside deck with a small table and chairs make for a perfect perch to enjoy a glass of wine while taking in the beautiful ocean view. Inside, the cabins have everything one could ask for and more. A deep soaker jetted tub, fireplace, sky light and uber cozy... More

The host and hostess are very friendly. They go all the way to make us feel at home. Great for family, couple, honeymooners, family reunion, etc. Even though these cabins are 12 years old. It looks like new - very well maintained.
