Great long weekend, just not long enough.
Beautiful scenic drive. Lush , Great Bear Rainforest.

We rate the tour and accommodations as one of our top BC vacations. The scenery is amazing and the tour host, Leonard and his crew are fantastic.

Excellent experience.

My wife and spent 3 nights in cabin 4. The cabin was new and very clean. The kitchen was well equipped for everything you might need to cook or entertain. There was a beautiful view of cliffs on the other side of the valley from inside the cabin and the deck outside.

We brought our dog in the trip and the grounds were perfect for her to run around and off leash

The owner was super friendly and accommodating. He even gave us some halibut to BBQ which was beyond generous.

Right across the street there was a beautiful spot to do some fly fishing within walking distance which was a huge bonus.

Stores, restaurants, and attractions were all within a short drive.

It was and awesome place to stay and I wouldn't hesitate to return.

We stayed as a couple in cabin 4 in late Sept 2015. The location is amazing with an exceptional view and the cabins are all nicely built with spacious interiors and well-equipped kitchen (which is particularly useful as there are not many options to dine out in Hagensborg and Bella Coola - not in late fall season when we visited). Leonard is great guy and has many years of experience in the wild... and a great story-teller. We took a day trip during which he shared many of his experiences with whales, grizzly bears. On the day trip, we took a dip at the hot springs, caught glimpses of some marine wildlife en route and hiked up to the ancient cedar. Leonard offered us many tips where to spot grizzly bears in the valley.

Room Tip: Leonard mentioned a grizzly sow with her 2 cubs was seen grazing around cabin 4, as it is slightly closer to the woods in the back.

This tour was an unexpected delight during our visit to the west chilcotin plateau in early sept 2014. We were introduced to Leonard Ellis during our stay at Eagle's Nest Resort in Anahim lake. Our eagerness for an adventure on his 40 foot fishing/tour boat had us signed up immediately.
Our day begin with a beautiful ride from Anahim lake to Bella Coola where we boarded the boat at 9am. We had perfect indian summer weather, sunny, blue skies, warm and the water was gentle and calm. Leonard's guided tour involved visiting many of the passages in and around the Bella Coola coastline. A haven for photographers! We visited an natural hot springs, it was secluded and nestled into the cliffed shoreline. We hiked to an enormous cedar tree, its energy felt gentle and powerful at the same time. We were also brought right up close to a twin waterfall as the waters cascaded so beautifully down to the shore. Leonard BBQ'd halibut burgers, man they were soooo good! We passed through areas where the salmon were returning to spawn, this was where the grizzlies are known to frequent. Leonard told stories about natures balance with the animals that lived in these areas. His years of experience translated into an informative and educational tour. Thank you so much Leonard for an amazing day aboard your boat. The adventure will remain in our hearts always!

We had a wonderful time on Leonards boat. We had the perfect weather, the water was calm as glass. The scenery was beautiful and the hot springs hit the spot. The hike to the big trees was not too long, actually it was quite an interesting experience walking through the temperate rainforest . We saw waterfalls, seals, dolphins and lots of birds. The halibut burgers called for seconds! And Leonard had lots of information and lots of stories to tell. Thanks for a wonderful experience.
