Truly grateful that there are sanctuaries like this to protect wildlife and its habitat. You apparently need to book a licensed operator to get to it. I spent a couple nights in the lodge, and it was great.

To be in a place where the environment has not been spoiled. Your hosts, Jamie and Megan, are so knowledgeable and take you on pontoon tours with sightings of bears, eagles, whales, birds, and wolves. The accommodations are very comfortable, the food outstanding, but it...More

We took a tour to this BC gem. The place is great and the fact that cannot be reached by car but only by sea plane or boat makes the place quite exclusive...and expensive. The day we took the tour was, under climate conditions, very...More
