My wife and I gave ourselves a mutual 60th birthday gift of a trip to Clayoquot (pronounced Klack'whot), and wow, what a great choice it turned out to be. John and Adelle have pulled together an extraordinary staff-family that loves what they're doing and projects their enthusiasm for Clayoquot and their appreciation for their guests in an abiding manner. Let's see... in 4 days we sea-kayaked for two hours, mountain-biked to a trail head and hiked the steep trail to the top of Penny Falls, Zodiac'd in the waters of Bedwell Sound (where we saw an orca family herding their quarry) and out onto the Pacific (seals, sea lions, otters, gray whale), hiked the Wild Side beach and picnic'd there, rode horses well into the Orsus old-growth forest crossing rivers multiple times enroute, shot .22 and 20ga guns, donned dry suits and swam with Chinook salmon, hot-tubbed, enjoyed wine-paired meals as exquisitely prepared and presented as you'd find in Paris or New York, dashed out on the Bedwell to see black bears feeding at low tide, made at least 10 neat new friends, and slept soundly in our thermostat-controlled luxury tent! CWR is so appealing that we plan to encourage 4-5 couples to join us when we return for our second trip. Oops... forgot to mention that the flight from-to Vancouver Airport can take 1-2 hours depending on the weather and the plane assigned by Seair Transportation.
