We've travelled the world for 4 decades and this PLACE is going to be rated right at the top of the list. An hour north by boat from Campbell River, it is an oasis of calm, with just a handful of guests in the most stunning of scenery, with just a handful of guests and a huge amount of wildlife. Everything and everyone was perfect: Hans who skippered our water-taxi, Eliot who hosted us, Bruce who was the perfect personal chef, and Jess the wildlife guide - all extraordinarily diligent and quietly wanting us to have the time of our lives (which we did). My thanks to them all. And book as many tours as you can fit in! We will never forget high tide at the rapids by Big Bay: a wildlife photographer's dream. We came home on cloud nine, having been to the most wonderful, discrete, personal, friendly place we have ever encountered. Leave the rat race behind, and go enjoy this place. And if you're a writer, painter or other person who needs peace and quiet, you will love it too. In our 4 days, we saw (had intimate views of..) bald eagles, juveniles, sea lions, seals, harbour porpoises, Dalls porpoises, Pacific white sided dolphins, loads of humpbacks (2 breaching), and just missed out on Grizzlies - but not through wan of trying and perseverance by Jess our wonderful guide). WHAT AN AMAZING PLACE - WHAT WONDERFUL HOSTS.

We stayed here for 3 nights as part of a trip with Beyond the Road Adventures, who are based in Lund. The location is beautiful, the cabins comfortable and the catering good - we particularly enjoyed the sumptuous breakfasts prepared by Bruce. The icing on the cake was 2 days of trips on a fast aluminium boat skippered by Jess. Thanks to her knowledge and skill we saw orcas, humpback whales, black bears and grizzlies. A really memorable stay.

We spent four glorious days in this very special and peaceful place. The trip to Blind Channel and accommodation was a dream to organise, and a dream to enjoy. Eliot and his team make you feel like you are part of their close knit community. The wildlife and fishing tours were fabulous with Jess and Hans as were the water taxi rides from and back to Campbell River. So much wildlife, good fishing and fabulous food cooked fresh every day in the kitchen, A friendly happy hour every evening before dinner overlooking the mariner. Cabins are absolute quality, so comfortable and spotlessly clean. Such great memories to take back to Tasmania!

My husband and I stayed in one of their cabins for our mini honeymoon (2 nights) beginning of July 2019. We parked our car at Rock Bay Campground for the time we were away and caught their water taxi to the resort. The cabin was lovely and very spacious and had an amazing view of the marina/water. The restaurant had delicious food, probably the best we've had in a long time, and amazing house cocktails! We did a boat tour and the skipper was very knowledgeable about the area and we were delighted to get to see lots of Eagles, Sea Lions and 2 pods of Humpback Whales up close! Lastly, all the staff were very welcoming and it felt like we were part of the little community while we were there. We can't say enough good things about our time at Blind Channel Resort. We highly recommend experiencing it for yourself, either by mooring your boat or taking the water taxi and staying in one of their cabins. We will definitely be going back!

Stunningly beautiful location with best of BC wildlife all around. Family of 4 from Australia stayed for 3 nights and very impressed with this friendly family- run lodge. Food excellent especially considering remote location. Service exceptional and always with good humour. Very comfortable cabin. Can recommend the local hiking trails. They’re not long but beautiful forest and coastal exploring. Wildlife tour with Jess was a big day but packed with amazing scenery and we were blown away by the dive-bombing eagles and playful dolphins. Nice little hike to lake. Tour was kept flexible depending on sightings, rapids flow etc Also went fishing and exploring with Hans who knows all the best spots and was highly entertaining. Cruising through the channels with glassy water, fog lifting to reveal the bays, islands and mountains will be a lasting memory. All of this with wonderful friendly helpful staff. Thank you all. Rob, Elaine, Lachie and Dan (loved his birthday cake!)
