    I can't recommend this Lodge and experience enough. It was one of the most amazing places I have ever visited. Five star food and service, gorgeous floating log cabin, so many Grizzly Bear sightings and staff you just love spending hours with hearing of their stories.

    ... who found a cougar on the boardwalk attacking a local dog, and persuaded it to desist by whacking it with a wooden oar which is proudly displayed by the front gate! I have since found out that the place has only six full time residents, and is virtually abandoned to the elements during the long long winters.

    ... we pushed on to Port Hardy, a drive of about 4.5hrs, and managed to find a restaurant (Quarter Deck Pub) still open around 8:30pm. It was an early night as we had a CRAZY early wake-up call to get to the ferry terminal before 6am.

    ... back under the floats and instead ran up the steep ramp to the dock.
