“Awesome once again!!!”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

We came back for our second year to Bear Cove Cottages this July. NOT A DISSAPOINTMENT! Once again the cabins were awesome, the weather was the best and the fishing was first class all around. Wades boat is awesome to fish from! He is a great guide with the utmost spect for his clients, the fish and the wildlife you get to see everyday. We caught many fish above 25 lbs, with the top three 26,27,28, a 74 lb halibut, saw whales, dolphins and sea otters. What more could you ask for?! We will return once again in 2013 for the great hospitality, fishing and fun. Thanks Wade!

Room Tip: Any room is great! All have great views and well outfitted for fishing!

Returning for my second fishing trip in August 2012 with Wade, we again enjoyed EPIC fishing adventures on the water. Along with an average size fish of 26 pounds, we enjoyed endless laughs and amazing scenary including whales, dolphins, and bald eagles. An oasis of wildlife and "buzzing" reels. Wade ensures that each experience betters the last; a true fisherman, captain, and friend of the open waters.

Room Tip: Each and every room has a breath-taking view of the ocean; wake up early enough to watch the sun ris...

Shannon and Wade are doing it right. The cabin are well furnished and the views are the best in the area from the porch. Wade took my wife, son, and me on our first salmon trip. We had a great time. He is one of the best! My 10 year old son said he was going to give me all of his money he had saved so we can come back again next year. How is that for a review? Thanks Darrrin.

We stayed in this cottage for two nights. It was very clean and well laid out, even a jacuzzi tub. We had a nice view of the water and watched the ferry come and go. The property was well maintained and very quiet. We had a hard time finding it because we googled it and got incorrect directions. Once we phoned and got directions from the owner, we found it no problem. It was well signed, but we had missed the signs as we followed our google directions...

Just returned from our third trip to Port Hardy with my brother & his wife. We really enjoy the hospitality and great service we receive at Bear Cove Cottages. We had a great time fishing with Wade, Chad & Ian and scored some nice fish! The cabins are clean and well furnished and the fishing days well organized. We enjoy seeing the improvements Shannon & Wade have made since our last trip. We will certainly be returning to this beautiful setting.

Room Tip: All eight cabins have great views of Hardy Bay and lots of bald eagles!

This was our third trip to Wade & Shannon's Bear Cove Cottages....and we are always really pleased...we travel literally all over the world...and have stayed in all sorts of places, and each year they put more nicety's into the cottages...for the nightly rate...it's a no brainer!!...They have put their heart and soul into this slice of heaven....but you have to try the fishing out with Wade...and after pulling some nice fish in you will enjoy the jacuzzi Tub...we cooked the fish we caught right on the front deck looking out at the beautiful bay...and watched Eagles and all sorts of wild life...just a great experience....we will be back for sure...
