I have visited KIL dozens of times with students doing bear behavior studies. Concern and respect for wildlife is tops, as is the food quality and experience of all staff. I was not a paid employee then, nor now, nor in the future so I feel I can highly recommend this resort to you w/o bias.

This exceeded our expectations in 2013. A warm welcome on the dock of the floating lodge upon arriving by float plane was amazing. The bear watching is unbelievable! And you are so close! The whales! So many Bald Eagles! The kayaking felt like we were in Scandinavian fjords. So much so that we are returning this October for the Vital...

I have stayed here three times over the last 15 years and have seen it grow. To me it is the best place in the world. I have traveled all over the world and this is the best place to me. The viewing of the bears ,eagles are the best also the day out to see the whales. I hope...

Just to start off. The whole experience at Knight Inlet lodge was one of those occasions you normally only dream about. We stayed two nights in August 2016 and did not want to leave. From the moment we took off by sea plane from Campbell River until we landed back again at Campbell River the experience was incredible. i sat...

Great location, accommodation and meals. Plenty to see and do with accomplished guides. Highly recommended. I wouldn't class the accommodation as luxury, but the location, sights and inclusions warrant the expense.

The lodge is amazing - floating on its own pontoons. It is comfortable without being luxurious. The meals are all served in a large dining room, with opportunities to meet fellow travellers. But it's the bears we came to see, and see them we did. Since we were there in May, we could only see them from the boat, which...

This is a belated review in an attempt to cover off 2016 before we hit 2017. We spent 4 nights here in late June 2016 (3 nights at the lodge and one at Campbell River). Knight inlet is a remarkable place, the sea planes in and out give you that sense of remoteness and adventure. The highlight for us had...

We did the 4 night package. We loved every minute of our stay. The people were awesome, the food was delicious and the bears - WOW. We had a fantastic experience. I would definitely recommend Knight Inlet Lodge. What an amazing place.

There is no excuse to not book a tour to Knight Inlet if you are visiting British Columbia. Go there - now! Everything about this tour is remarkable and unforgettable: the pristine setting, the views, the staff, the service, the GRIZZLY BEARS. This is tourism at its best.

Very lucky to be able to visit a place like this. Wonderful remote location with breathtaking scenery and stunning opportunities to see grizzly bears close up. Excellent staff and the flight in in is pretty good as well! Don't expect a restful visit but if you can go do so.
