“All the arrangements worked really well, the whale and bear watching were completely awesome (not a word I use often or lightly!). We loved Vancouver Island and Alert Bay, and we’d love to be back there again one day”

“Dear Jeff & Bindi, Thank you. For sharing your piece of paradise with us, for the delicious meals, great conversations, for your knowledge and respect of this area and the bears. It was a dream come true to see the bears and to experience them with you & your peaceful, respectful manner – we could not have picked a better guide or experience. We came as strangers, left as friends and we will always think of you and Bindi whenever we see grizzlies forever after. Jeff, I am so happy I was able to return to complete my five days here with you and Bindi – our time with the bears & together walking through this magical place you call home has been beyond my wildest dreams! Great food, great fun, great friendship & great conversation – hope to do this again!”

“Jeff, It has been an amazing week, thank you for your hospitality and for sharing with us all your knowledge and experiences with the majestic grizzlies. Our encounters will be remembered forever, we take Bella Coola’s rivers, trees, meadows, lakes and grizzlies in our hearts. The Chalet is a magical place… Thank you Jeff.”

”My travels to Haida Gwaii were most memorable for the range of experiences, acquired knowledge about Haida history, art and culture and the people with whom we interacted during our journey. I would rate this trip a 5 (excellent!). TY so much".

Fantastic Alert Bay adventure! Nina and Scott went out of their way to make our experience in Alert Bay special. We had a great trip up from Victoria with stops and stories along the way. Toured Alert Bay and learned a lot about the locals and the history of the area. Very special visits at the lodge from First Nation members who shared songs, lore and salmon preparation. A memorable experience!
