We had the cabin and this is small, but has everything you need and a view!!!! Angus took us on the tours and knows what he's doing and where to be. Both the grizzly's and the...

It is the people as well as the wildlife that make a visit to Grizzly Bear Lodge so memorable. From the first email contact until the farewells at the wharf every staff member went out of their way to make this a special and extremely pleasurable experience. The lodge is beautifully situated overlooking the water and surrounded by a lovely...

Accomodation is basic, but everything you need is provided. Nice and clean. We had the room downstairs, which means you have to use a shared bathroom. Not very convenient. Rooms upstairs and the cabin have private bathrooms. But that's enough about the lodge. If you want luxury, go to the Maldives. It's all about nature here. And that is what...

Met on arrival at the dock and shown to our cabin which was right on the waters edge what a view. The whole experience was professional, fun and informative with excellent food to top it all. The amount of bears, seals , whales and eagles we saw was unbelievable couldn't have been any better. Would recommend this trip to everyone

Excellent 4 night trip at very reasonable cost when compared with the alternatives. Friendly and very knowledgeable guides, excellent food from Madeleine and Angus willing to be flexible. We were able to swap our estuary trip for further whale watching where we had a huge orca pass right under our boat! Bear watching excellent even if the salmon were a...

If you're interested in wildlife this should not be missed! The lodge, which only sleeps up to 10, is ideally situated on Minstrel Island in Knight Inlet giving easy access to the seaward part of the inlet for watching orca, whales and dolphin but also to the rivers to see grizzlies and salmon leaping. We went out with Angus and...
