Excellent four day/night stay despite heavy winds that prevented us from getting out on the water. Spent the time swimming in Main Lake, hiking to Surge Narrows and other spots with varying distances and difficulty. Breakfasts included were good and nutritious. No real problems preparing our own lunches and dinners in the community kitchen. Amazing views from the lodge. Floating sauna available as we needed. Friendly and knowledgable staff. Good to connect with Ralph and Lannie again. Clean and comfortable rooms...shared bathrooms worked well and loved the outdoor showers. All in all....recommend. Only thing ....... roads into the lodge very hard on our vehicle....rough surfaces and loads of hills. Otherwise....great stay.......

This is our second stay at Discovery Island Lodge and we thoroughly enjoyed the outstanding hospitality from the staff at the Lodge. The lodge is well kept and the breakfast was delious and sitting around the breakfast table gave us a chance to meet and chat with people who share a common interest in kayaking and exploring the ocean coast of BC. The kayaking is suitable for persons of all skill levels. We look forward to our third stay at the lodge next summer.

We found this to be a very good balance of getting away from it all in rustic surroundings, but still with some important comforts like a decent bed, hot showers and a well equipped communal kitchen. The open plan lounge/kitchen had comfy couches and a lovely woodburning fire that made it really cozy. Beth and the rest of the staff were exceptional hosts. They were attentive, but not intrusive and made sure we had all we needed. The breakfasts were delicious and imaginative. We did our own kayaking, but guests that did use their guides and equipment were very complimentary.

My husband and I are geriatric kayakers and stayed here for 3 days recently. We cant say enough good things about the staff of 3 young women who took such good care of us. This place runs like a casual group experience with the fine tuning and organization running efficiently, smoothly and humming right along under the surface. We had great guided group kayak trips,assist with routes to take on our own and answers, education and instruction to all our queries.Pricing is affordable in a incredibly beautiful location. We will go back. Thank you Sabina,Gwen and Emmy for a memorable vacation!

Ralph and Lannie have designed and built a place that has everything sea kayakers would ever want in a resort. The location is easily accessible, the paddling is top notch, the lodge is just fantastic from the wonderful and scenic living/dining area to the gorgeous dock system, and especially the wood-fired sauna, also on the dock. The place is also completely off the grid so you can minimize to eliminate your carbon footprint...in luxury (at least for sea kayakers). And the paddling is outstanding for all levels. Surge Narrows, 5 minutes away or outrageously scenic easy paddling just off the dock. What surprised me the most is how wonderful a place this is for kids - Many families were having a wonderful time here and took advantage of the day tour - a terrific way to

We stayed at the lodge the second week of August for 4 nights and had a wonderful experience. Great set-up for all types of travelers Remote but not too remote, easy to get to but far enoug away that you settle in and relax. Spectacular setting, wonderful sunsets, idillic kayaking for beginners or for experts, friendly kayak guides and lodge hosts who are welcoming and helpful but not intrusive. So convenient to be able to take a guided kayak tour one day, and then rent kayaks the next. Love the flexibility. Impeccably clean, simple rooms, wonderful private outdoor showers on the deck, and a sauna on the dock. Our kids, ages 11 and 13 had a great time interacting with others, checking th crab trap, being involved in lodge life, clean up and food prep. No electronics since

We decided to book a kayak trip for 4 leaving from the Discovery Island Lodge. The lodge itself is very inviting and the views are breathtaking. Serenity all around. We wished we stayed a night just experience it. The paddling was also fantastic around the island. Our guide Emily was friendly, knowledgeable and experienced kayaker. While paddling we spotted plenty seals and a few eagles. The lunch made by our guide was awesome so that was pleasing. After another few hours of paddling we were back at the lodge . I highly recommend this trip.

We loved this lodge. We were with our Australian cousins who had never kayaked. The lodge is beautiful and comfortable. The girls who run it were professional and friendly. Breakfasts were delicious. We prepared our own evening meals in the well-equipped kitchen. I can't wait to get back here again. A truly memorable time.

Great host in Beth and team, despite being under the weather, we had a great time. Could not get a better view anywhere. My wife went for a day trip on the river, while I had a game of golf with some of the best view I have ever seen on a course.

We stayed at the lodge for four nights, kayaking every day. The two ladies in charge were delightful, helpful hosts. Rooms were inviting and comfortable. The set-up is European Pension style with common bathrooms and a very large common area with kitchen. Breakfast was included and was hearty for all of us outdoor types.
