I spent the last 5 days at Heaven on Earth! My goal was to see wildlife and I achieved that goal the moment I landed. Before dinner we take a short boat ride and encountered a black bear. During the next 4 days the experienced guides sought out and found more bears...(black and grizzlies with their cubs), wolves, eagles, orcas, humpbacks, dolphins and seals. I also viewed bears from a boat in an estuary and from a bear stand.
On top of the wildlife the accommodations were superb. The lodge felt like home. The meals (breakfast & dinner) were served around a dinner table with wonderful conversation among the guests. Lunch was served either on a boat or a dock during a break in a tour. The food was divine! The owners of the lodge, the guides and cook (more like chef!) greet all the guests at the dock when the float plane arrives. Upon arrival all guests are served freshly caught seafood appetizers (i.e. prawns, crab, etc) along with a variety of cheeses and crackers. The rooms at the lodge were very comfortable...each with its own restroom.
If needed the lodge does have wifi but believe me you won't want it! If peace and quiet is what you want and the ability to commune with nature then this is the place for you! I can't wait for my return trip.
Many thanks to Angus, Krystle, George, Madeline, Clint and Emily for the best vacation EVER!
