A note from one of our guests
Our family just returned from 16 days in Canada and without a doubt this was the absolute highlight of our holiday. (I always knew it would be but had to convince the children about the camping aspect…)
From the moment we set foot on our island, the children were already enchanted and loved the whole set up, from the visiting teeny tiny creamy bellied squirrels that chittered and chattered all day around camp, to the soaring bald eagles above and more….
Where to start…??!
The most magical for me was waking each morning and falling asleep each night to the sound of a humpback exhaling…. Such a beautiful, and unforgettable sound.
Our camp was perfect. Great set up, very clean and beautiful tranquil setting. Set on one end of Hansen Island, all to ourselves!!!! Tents are great: clean, perfect size, each situated overlooking the sea, all close to one another, but not too close. Bed cots provided with mattresses – very comfortable. Extra blankets included. All perfect.
Camp kitchen also well set up. Food was really good. We particularly LOVED the homemade cherry cheesecake (thank you Jillian!), baked Brie and Salmon dinner. Also loved the homemade cookies. Lunches each day were really healthy, wholesome and delicious.
Views from camp were just stunning. We would run from one side to the other, each time we heard a whale exhaling…
Many lovely spots on the island to sit on a lichen covered rock and just watch the eagles above. Seals often bob their heads up down as they watch you on the rock. Grab a pair of binoculars and go lose an hour on those rocks.
The highlight was obviously the kayaking! To see seals, whales, porpoises etc from the kayak was just amazing! We had great weather and loved being out on the water all day. Water was not choppy at all. Great to get into a rhythm with the paddling. Very meditative! Kayaks were really good, equipped with everything needed, very stable. Wondered if the kids would get tired as we are all novices, but they loved it too. 2 person kayaks meant that even if the kids do get tired, we can just paddle and give them a rest. Our guide was really good and very knowledgeable and gave us a good useful briefing before heading out. Cooked great meals and was very respectful of all the beautiful wildlife around us.
It was truly amazing, would go back in a heartbeat, didn’t want to leave and can only highly recommend!
