We booked a wedding with Leonard last summer. The cabins were clean and well stocked. Huge grounds with a good mix of old-growth and groomed lawn, great for photos with plenty of parking, unlimited tent sites. Nice pond and trails out the back. The gazebo was AWESOME, we set

The cabin was very nice, ample, comfortable, well equipped with kitchen utensils, cutlery and gadget; all very clean. It is located 2 min from a supermarket and about 15 min from Bella Coola. However the tour service was another story. One of the main reasons to visit the

Response from Leonard E, Owner at Bella Coola Grizzly Tours Inc.
Responded Jul. 24, 2016
Thank you Irene for your nice compliments on our Cabins. I am glad that you enjoyed your accommodations and your Petroglyph Tour. Thank you for noting our Cabins are well equipped, ideally located and very clean. We have worked very hard to build them in this wilderness area and take pride in our Cabins and Vessels. Our Glacial Fjord Tours out to the Hotsprings are 8 hours long (9 am-5 pm including on board hot lunch) and cover over 50 nautical kilometers of pristine Glacial Fjords. It costs me out of my pocket about $1000.00 to do the Fjord Tour given the price of fuel, moorage, insurance, staff and the maintenance and operation of the 42 foot twin Diesel MV Nekhani. I am only a small family business and am not subsidized by the government to operate, like BC Ferries. I need a minimum of 6 passengers at $175. per person to generate $1050. just to break even and provide the service to our guests. If people wish to join this Nautical Tour we 'pencil' in the date they chose to go and then we all work very hard at confirming a minimum of 6 people to go on the particular date. The majority of the time we are successful at confirming the Tour as you can see by our other Trip Advisor Reviews. The maximum we are licensed to take on board is 12 guests and the minimum to depart is 6 Guests. Significant vessel cost and high overhead on this Nautical tour confirms the reality that there are very few licensed private operators offering this Boat Tour out of the Port of Bella Coola. Our ocean going vessel come under rigorous Transport Canada Inspections for your safety and is very costly to operate. Our vessel complies with Transport Canada requirements and we have never, in 40 years of operation in this area, had an injury or fatality at Sea. I am truly sorry I was unable to make this tour happen for you and I am sure you hopefully realize I would have obviously much rather have seen your smiling face on board. I had no idea you were so unhappy on your departure and given you said nothing to me in person about this issue I was quite taken back when I received your Trip Advisor review. We tried very hard for you, whether you realize it or not, but we simply could not find a certified boat operator in Bella Coola that could accommodate a solo traveller. We certainly did not want to make ourselves liable or put you, our guest, at risk by recommending any operator that may not have a seaworthy vessel. One of the reasons people enjoy coming to Bella Coola is because it is one of the last frontier's for wilderness and wildlife, a little out of the way, remote and peaceful and mostly because it is not yet saturated with people that are lined up in buses for Tours, like other tourist destinations. Unfortunately, because Tourism is a relatively new industry here, the numbers issue can make it challenging to put a group together when minimum operating numbers are required. I apologize and acknowledge your negative feedback and you can be assured we will be making all our potential guests well aware of the minimum passengers required to sail and/or the option to charter the vessel privately. Your Truly, Leonard Ellis/Owner
