Seriously the best family adventure vacation we've ever taken. Everything was perfect from the seaplane to the island (where our son's got to co-pilot) to the arrival wagon bringing us up to the cook house for champagne and appetizers. The activities were custom designed for your wants/needs each day. John and his team really know how to offer seamless service.... More

Imagine wilderness camping with 5 star dining with perfectly selected wine pairings after a day of unique land or sea activities and retiring to a stove warmed creek side tent with radiant heated floors in the bath, an outdoor shower and the stars of a light pollution-free sky and you have an idea of this low key but refined wilderness...

Breathtakingly beautiful describes this very special and pristine part of the world! Our party of four, ahem, "mature" adults were frazzled and fried from the previous days' airline misadventures which evaporated immediately upon arrival at Clayoquot. Cool, fresh air, lovely warm smiles and hellos from hosts (all staff are considered your hosts!), and friendly pups with wagging tails greeted us... More

Our whole family enjoyed every second of the four days in this magical resort. Great activities, kind and caring hospitality - combined with great local wines and a wonderful cuisine.

Before going to Clayoquot we were kind of apprehensive with the whole experience. We thought we could get a little bored or uncomfortable with the tents. We couldn't be more wrong. As soon as the seaplane landed in that gorgeous place we felt that we were going to experience these amazing days. It is really hard to describe such a... More
