We loved our time in the Float House Inn - by far the unique and wonderful experience in our coastal BC circle tour.

We too enjoyed our kayak trip - we went up the coast a bit and explored the beautiful scenery easily accessed from the harbour location of the Float House Inn. We tried crabbing with equipment supplied - unfortunately, we didn't get any crabs but it was fun to try.

I remember sitting on the top deck, listening to the bellows of the seals on the nearby float, the lap of the waves against the boat, the cries of circling birds and thinking that this experience is what makes vacations special and memorable

The owners are super helpful - they helped us set up the crab traps and promised to help us if we actually caught crabs. They were also asked about our experience so the next people would enjoy themselves even more.

I highly recommend the Float House Inn for anyone with a sense of adventure (it is a boat) who wants something different and special. If you are looking for a boring, canned Club Med type experience - maybe someplace else would be better but if you are looking for a place that will stand out in your memory due to the beauty of the location and the experience of staying there, this is probably where you would enjoy staying

A great experience. We loved the location, the amenities and the helpful owners.
The view from the stern of the mountains, the fishing boats leaving in the morning, kayaking into the estuary with the boat provided with the Float House Inn really made it a unique and special experience.
The owners were very helpful, showed us how to crab fish and were available to help us if needed.

We would like to thank you very much for the wonderful stay aboard the Float house Inn! Your attention to detail and cleanliness is outstanding! We enjoyed a kayak around the harbor and loved exploring the old cannery. We had the best time just sitting outside by candle light with our glass of wine and listening to the very comical seals that were lying out in front of us on the floats. A truly amazing first anniversary and we can not send enough compliments your way! We will recommend your float house anytime! Thank you very much!

We had a great time aboard The Float Inn. The owner was most helpful and showed us how all amenities worked and it was an amazing way to start our holiday in the Bella Coola area. Thank you so much. We loved the seals that came right up to the boat.

Room Tip: 3 bedrooms very comfortable and cozy. We watched the seals at night time from our bed.

The Float House Inn is totally unique! Rocked to sleep each night by the sea, pulling giant Dungeness crabs over the stern, becoming part of the dock community around you and staring at the incredible scenary until your eyes hurt! All of this and a quaint, comfortable place to stay! Friendly folks in Bella Coola and up the valley and lots of things to do and cultural sites to see. If it was closer I'd be there all the time, but if it was closer, it wouldn't be Bella Coola. Thanks, Laird and Lynn.

Room Tip: Not hard to do-only one room!
