We reached out to Pete towards the end of March, which isn’t a typical time of year for tours in Bella Coola, but we wanted to be able to explore the area while we were there and Pete was so accommodating. We had a spectacular day sailing to the Hot Springs and the Big Cedar Tree. The mountain views were incredible and the time spent at the hot springs and hiking to the cedar tree were some of our favorite activities while we were there. Pete is so fun to hang out with - he wants everyone to have a good time, to relax, laugh and enjoy the day. We took our 2 boys (ages 13 and 16) and they thought Pete was a blast! If you’re looking for an amazing adventure in Bella Coola with a fantastic guide, then Pete is your guy!

Peter was a great guide. We saw such beautiful scenery, a huge cedar and stopped at the natural hot springs. Peter also provided a wonderful lunch for us.

Oh my God. We will never forget the time well spend with Peter. As usual tour started at 8AM. Shortly after boarding his boat, he offered us hot tea of coffee . We saw couple of orca. We immediately turned the engine off so that we can take pictures. The tour continued with some snacks. As we were enjoying the hot spring he cooked meals for us which was a nice treat after soaking in hot spring. He should be best thing to do in Bella Coola. He was checking with all the guests on board chatting with them to make them comfort.

We had an amazing day out sailing to the hot springs with Peter with 8 friends. Lots of room on the boat for us, hanging out on the front in the sun or inside while cooking. He had helpful knowledge of the local area and shared some great sailing stories with us. Would highly recommend!

We went out for an amazing day trip with Peter this August. It was the best money we spent on our trip to Bella Coola, Port McNeill, and Tofino. We have a son on the spectrum and he won't go on our riverboat but he was happy to try sailing. Peter was amazing with him! He explained to him what would happen when we started sailing and our son was thrilled to steer the sailboat. You can see how engaged Peter is while showing him the basics of sailing in our picture. He is a first-class individual and this trip is worth every penny spent!

We recently had the opportunity to experience an 8 day adventure exploring the Great Bear Rainforest and the coastal fjords of BC’s coast.

Captain Peter (Ragnar) and the Seawolf were the base of our operations as we moved from secluded bay to secluded bay.

From humpbacks and dolphins, to fishing for dinner, to lunch on a distant beach every day was a new adventure.

Peter’s calm demeanor and extensive sea knowledge made this adventure a must repeat as there is so much more to explore.

Being new to sailing and helming the boat with full sails was an experience we won’t soon forget.

Highly recommend extending the base trip (6 days) to 8 so that you have time in the morning to relax and beachcomb more before heading to the next day’s anchorage.

Till next time 👍👍

We had an amazing time sailing with Pete. Some of the highlights included:

- Natural hot springs
- Spotting a whale
- We got to sail at max heel
- Swimming in crystal blue water
- Exploring land and finding a 1500 year old cedar tree

Pete's a real gem and will make sure you have a good time.

We had an extremely fun time spending the day with Pete. He had tea and pancakes for us when we arrived and took off to check out the beautiful fjords of Bella Coola, seeing a porpoise along the way! We got to hike to Big Cedar while he made us a tasty lunch and then we got to enjoy the hot springs all to ourselves. It got very windy at that point and Pete got to let us experience the full fun of really sailing. Pete is quite the character and we highly recommend adventuring with him!
