"I could make-up a "whale" of a tail to describe this adventure but it would fall short of reality. "Bear" with me as I recall the awesome wildlife, the ridiculous scenery & the over-abundance of the most decadent cuisine ever. "Halibut" the treks up the trails, the kayaks, the fishing leg by the accomplished & genial Emily. I see (sea) lions in my dreams & I will always rave about the commaraderie we shared with the crew. I salute you!!"

"This was the perfect way to spend our 35th anniversary! The entire trip was greater than we could imagine. The beautiful scenery, bears, fishing, waterfalls, and new friends. The crew made every minute special. They were friendly, helpful, and kept us very well fed. An unforgetable trip I hope to be able to take again! Thanks so much!"

"A holiday made in heaven...scenery, animals, weather, and your crew! Thank you for fulfilling a long time dream!"
