It was a toss up between a day trip that was described as " a taste" or two days with a night on the boat that was described as, "an experience". I opted for the experience and have no regrets! Before we left the harbor we had pulled and set crab traps and seen the tail of a big whale! My smile was ear to ear. We cruised to a quiet bay and watched the most beautiful blonde faced grizzly, kayaked the estuary, basked in the warmth of a natural hot spring and then dined on crab. Snuggled into the forward cabin for a peaceful night on board. I had never been on a ocean sail boat and this trip pretty much ticked all the boxes. My one complaint is that the trip was to short! A return trip is always the highest recommendation. Already booked for six night next May! Thank you Peter for a very memorable adventure.

Wow! The day trip with Peter was one to never forget. The day trip consisted of smooth sailing through the gorgeous fjords (Bella Coola Inlet) with picturesque scenery and wildlife. The stops at the hot springs, big cedar tree and pictographs/ petroglyphs were top notch and not to be missed. On top of all of that, Peter cooked us an incredible seafood lunch and even surprised us with dessert! Peter was a true professional with an incredible, light-hearted and warm personality which made us feel right at home during the tour. We cannot wait to go back to Bella Coola again soon and take another adventure with Peter and the Sea Wolf!

Absolutely captivating, from the very first step aboard the Sea Wolf. Having traveled and sailed in many countries around the world I can say comparatively that this one week adventure with Peter was my absolute favourite trip. Firstly, Peter is a very modest and an incredible person who is very passionate with his love of sailing and his love of nature. Every day was filled with memorable activities and sittings from evening kayaking trips while watching the sun set, grizzly bear viewing in a dinghy up the most spectacular river you will ever see, whale watching, porpoises chasing the boat and simply enjoying the beauty of sailing to list a few. There was a very spiritual sense of calmness and peacefulness on this trip and I contribute a big part of that to Peter's reflections through our conversations from day to day. We did share a lot of fun and good laughs with our bantering. When I left the dock I thought to myself this ranks as one off my best trips ever and experiences. Thank you for being you and thank you for sharing your back yard and office with us! The crab will sure be pleased to know that I am not in there neighbourhood any more!

We had a beautiful day out on the Seawolf with Pete. After collecting the crab traps for our fresh seafood lunch, we headed to the natural hot springs. On the way there and back we enjoyed animal spotting (seals, dolphins) and enjoyed the amazing scenery. The hot springs are great fun and super relaxing! Great day out!

We were lucky that the weather cooperated on our sailing day. It was raining and very windy the day before. We prefer the sailing boat rather than the motor boat for a leisure and smooth sailing. We enjoyed the sailing through the Inlet. It would be a perfect trip if Captain Pete took us to the Big Cedar and hoist the sails.
