My husband and I travelled to the Sonora Island Resort from 9/19 to 9/22 and I am going to have a very difficult time putting into words, how wonderful our trip was! We flew in from Toronto to Vancouver, and then up by Helicopter to Sonora Island. The weather was perfect and the views were spectacular, and the ride was... More

This place is a real find – whether you want to be very active with outdoor activities or just want to get away from it all. We did the latter and just enjoyed the food, the natural water show (with eagles, sea lions and seals “performing” and water running like a river) that occurred on a daily basis in front... More

We stayed at the Sonora resort for 2 days in September. We arrived by water taxi from Campbell River which was 75 minutes of stunning scenery. We were met by a ‘welcoming committee ‘ on the quay and taken to the lounge for light refreshments. At this point, before access to our rooms, we were given a ½ hour run... More

I just got back from a three day adventure to Sonora Resort. This was my sixth trip to this very unique part of the world, and I can't wait until I can go again. A couple of tips if you go, a) engage the staff, they are very well trained and very fun. b) choose your fishing guide wisely, get... More

We visited Sonora in October 2012 for my 60th birthday primarily for the grizzly bear viewing. Whilst the scenery, service, food & accommodation are exceptional, unfortunately the bear viewing programme was poor. The "guide" was as far as I could ascertain the young man who drove the boat and spent the whole 2 hours in the stands chatting with other... More

Thanks very much for your comments regarding your experience on a bear tour with us in October 2012. We were very disappointed to learn of the problems you encountered on the bear tour and we have addressed the matter with our boat operators that transport guests to and from the Orford River where the bear viewing takes place. We partner... More

My family and I are still currently at Sonora waiting to leave after five wonderful days but we couldn't wait any longer to post a review. It is what you imagine it to be and more.

After a great stay three years ago, we made a second trip with some degree of apprehension that the experience would not live up to the fond memories of our prior stay. We're happy to report that the resort, in terms of the accommodations, services, dining, available activities is still awesome. In both this trip and three years ago, we... More

We spent four days at Sonora on a quasi business retreat with two other couples and every second was beyond outstanding. The food was mouth watering, the accomodations first rate and the attention to detail by the enthusiastic staff was tireless. Seeing sea lions, eagles and dolphins in their natural habitat was a once in a lifetime opportunity. I'm already... More
