There are hundreds of reviews that attest to this being a great excursion in Prince Rupert, and I agree. What struck me on top of that, was the passion and knowledge evident in every crew member, from the boat's Cheif engineer, to every crew member...More

I spent 4 days at the Khutzeymateen Grizzly Bear Sanctuary - more specifically at the Khutzeymateen Wilderness Lodge for which I'll write a separate review. I cannot recommend the sanctuary enough. I had seen grizzlies before, but never like this. The bears seems super comfortable...More

If you think this is expensive, THINK AGAIN. Worth it over and over again. The beds, the food and MOSTLY the nature with all the bears to be seen.

Unbelievable! So wonderful to get to see these bears and so hopeful that a place like this exists- maybe humans aren't doomed to destruction after all. Love this special, gorgeous place and felt humbled and honored to be there.

In May, it is a great time to go to the Khutz. It's not cheap but you do get flown in and back. The float plane ride is spectacular and just that is worth it. I've been there a couple time in May and there are plenty of... More
