Lund Seaside Inn offers an all-inclusive (all meals) option, and hosts Gord & MaryAnne also provide boat tours of Desolation Sound and Savary Island. They can put together any kind of outdoor activity that you may desire: they have bicycles, scuba suits, snorkel equipment, and nets for shrimping & crabbing; and beach chairs & umbrellas for the less-active. Each room at the Inn has a deck with lovely views of Lund - the Inn is on tiny Sevilla Island just a few hundred meters from the Lund Government Dock. MaryAnne's meals are delicious, but if you want to try local restaurants instead of eating with your hosts, they are happy to load you onto their boat and drive you over to the Lund town dock.
Once you park at Lund in the 24-hour supervised lot, you won't need your car again until you leave. One call from the parking attendant to Gord and he's on his way to pick you up.
We took a full-day trip to Desolation Sound in August, and saw seals, starfish, and many other boaters. (If you come at the right season you may see orcas and even humpback whales.) As an older couple who aren't too active, every care was taken to help us on and off the boat at our various stops, and safe boating was always foremost. We also took a shorter ride around Savary Island, not having time to stop and picnic. Gord has a great knowledge of the region and can guide you to a great spot for relaxing or biking on Savary, and will come to retrieve you in time for dinner. MaryAnne will even prepare a picnic lunch.
The owners, Gord & MaryAnne, have many years' experience in outdoor survival, physical training, and leading groups. Their daughter, Nicole, who worked with them this summer, is a certified lifeguard, so you should feel quite safe on any outdoor adventure. Gord and his sons had just finished a deck extension when we visited and we plan to be back to enjoy a barbecue next summer.
