Gearing up to take our water taxi over to the Tent and Breakfast, we were not sure exactly what to expect. The last couple weeks were spent camping either in established campgrounds or out in the bush. This bit of our adventure was to be a taste of luxury and MJ/Tony did not disappoint. They welcomed us with open arms and gave us a tour of their beautifully situated property.
The canvas tents with the beds were basic yet nice to get us up off the ground. No worries of rain or cold with a few extra blankets thrown on the bed waiting for us. A short walk from our accommodations was the wonderfully decorated house. The salmon dinner and free flowing coffee/tea made our visit feel like home.
The next morning we got our lesson in kayaking with MJ and Kyle taking us out into the water. It was such an awesome day of casual kayaking with MJ explaining the abundant wildlife and geologic formations surrounding us. When the trip was over, you couldn't believe your muscles were so from the distance we had so easily traveled.
This place is a jewel on Jakolof Bay and I hear they are upgrading some of their tents into cabins. We'll be back for another visit!
