From our Guest Log

Our guests speak of their trips with "Ocean Adventures"...

Spring in the Great Bear Rainforest

"There is no travel experience like Inlets of the Grizzly! Eric and Trish, who instil in us their own deep respect for the landscape, the wildlife and the people, have their guests come away better people" ~ Mary, Canada

"Seeing the bears was such a privilege!" ~ Amanda D., Australia

Celebrating a wedding anniversary "Thank you for sharing this wonderfully healing coast with us — a piece of paradise and calm." ~ Sandra P., England

"I LOVED kayaking!" ~ Maddy D. (age 10), Australia

"Thank you for showing us Gwaii Haanas, an amazing part of the world and for making us feel like we were at home, while we were on board with you!" ~ Jo & Marty, U.S.A.

"Excellent meals and wonderful company! The week was unforgettable!" ~ Carol H. Canada

"You are doing a much needed job of helping to preserve the habitat and the lives of these bears." ~ Joyan & Dan, Canada

Patrick taking a shower! "Thank you for this experience — I saw my first bears in the wilderness!" ~ Marcus K., Germany

"We enjoyed sharing time with the Haida that we were fortunate to meet, and, to spend time in the ancient village sites and to marvel at the poles still standing." ~ Gwen & Ken, Wales

"I love Haida Gwaii even more than before." ~ Diana, Canada

"Thank you Eric and Trish for the trip of a lifetime. The hours with the little, female Spirit Bear did touch me very deep. I have seen many bears, many times before, but this is the most beautiful, ever!" ~ Peter Keller, Sweden

"Thank you for a great week, and for showing a "city gal" the natural beauty of the Queen Charlottes. We will come again !" ~ Janet Spellisey, Etobicoke, Ontario, Canada

"...this trip, your knowledge, and your passion, solidified my commitment to the environment!" ~ Stacie Duncan, Boston, Mass., U.S.A.

"I feel like I have learned to be a bit more adventurous on this trip — very satisfying !" ~ V. Calder, Osoyoos, B.C., Canada

"A very big thank you for making 'the Quest for the Spirit Bear', a quest also for the very best in human nature." ~ Mary Andrew, Victoria, B.C. Canada

Felix in the Big House in Klemtu "It has awakened all the senses — the incredible scenery, the scent of the ocean air, the taste of all the home cooked meals, the sounds of the water beneath us — but, most of all how you made us feel". ~ D. Stevely, Squamish, B.C., Canada

"A huge THANK YOU to all of you for the best trip ever: your care, humour, patience and consideration, are exceptional and an integral part of the trip." ~ Susanne Evert, Vancouver, B.C., Canada

"I've never been on such a trip !! After my week, I'm guessing that your charter tour is one of the most exceptional on the B.C. coast or anywhere ! I have already decided that I am returning to shoot a film." ~ J. Feline, videographer, Missoula, Montana, U.S.A.

"The spirit of the bears, wolves, whales, otters, have worked their magic on my heart. I will carry a piece of the rain forest and your hospitality back to N.Y.C. with me." ~ Susan, N.Y.C., N.Y., U.S.A.

"This trip has been a dream come true. It has exceeded my expectations. You did a superb job of bringing us close to the wildlife and pointing things out that we would otherwise not have seen." ~ Michael Schwartz, Pittsburgh, Penn., U.S.A

"I want you to know that you have helped in my decisions for certain directions and paths in my life that I never knew existed before." ~ Kris Riel, Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada
