Everything, from the bus from Victoria to the taxi to the ferry at the end, ran smoothly, and we absolutely loved the lodge, and Alert Bay itself. We got on really well with Rich and Emma and just want to tell you what a fantastic job they are doing there. Emma's cooking is absolutely superb and I believe you can testify to that yourselves!! They were both so helpful and welcoming. The Grizzly day was one of the best of our lives, and we would highly recommend Tide Rip to anyone. Whale watching was almost as good and again, Stubbs do a fantastic job. So thank you - we wouldn't hesitate to book another trip with you! Kind Regards, Diane & Martin Finney"

Having seen Lisa's photos of Yukon and Alaska on Facebook, two of us are more than keen (or as Lisa would say "super" keen to do this trip, although not for a couple of years as have to save some loonies! Can you advise of itinerary, costs etc (aware that will change) for this tour? Once again huge thanks and hope rest of season is successsful for you. Regards Lorna"

The whole trip went very well and I was very lucky with both whale and bear sightings. I would also like to mention Rich and Emma as they made my stay at the lodge excellent and were always available to help with any of my travel or trip arrangements."

We would also like to thank Lisa Edwardson for being a perfect host, guide, driver, companion and hopefully a friend. There is no way a person in her position as a tour guide can have full confidence in the appreciation we hopefully showed Lisa when we parted, due to the fact that it is difficult for most people to be absolutely honest if asked face to face how they performed. Now that we do not have to speak face to face with Lisa and can be absolutely honest, all we have to say is that Lisa was exceptionally courteous, considerate, tolerate, patient, knowledgeable and a real gem that needs to be treasured by Midnight Sun. We will have no hesitation in recommending and passing on the above comments to everyone over here in Australia and wish you many enquiries from them. Thank you again Midnight Sun and Lisa" Coral Sainsbury and Bill Nunan.

RE Rocky Mountain Wildlife Tour, June 15-25/16 Hello Nina - As you might have heard from Amber, our Wildlife Tour was a great success: I'm still 'digesting' all the impressions we had during the trip: the landscape and scenery were so impressive that it still lingers on till now. We had good luck with the animals we saw, with the weather and the sequence in which we saw the different locations: it accumulated in superlatives. And you were right that the canoeing on Clearwater Lake was one of the 'highlight experiences'. But there were many of them, which were almost impossible to compare. I would recommend this tour to everyone, everything was well organized during the tour, and we had a lovely guide in Amber. Thanks for your information. Have a good summer season! Annemiek

RE: Haida Gwaii Trip. 09/07/15. "Dear Nina: Now that we have returned from Seattle, I wanted to add my thanks and admiration for your guidance of our Haida Guaii trip. When our spirits flagged you raised them up; and when their were rare moments that could have led to discord you soothed them away. The philosophy by which you lived and told us about clearly guided you in everything and earned our gratitude." We told Karen that I could think of nothing that could be changed on a future trip. The great weather, which also continued in Seattle, was a further gift! We need not have packed any of the cool weather, rainy day garments that made our baggage even more cumbersome. We hope you have been able to relax a bit since you got home. With kind regards, Diana and Joe

My partner and I had the Grizzly Bears and Orcas holiday from 6 – 11 September 2016. I am just writing to say that we had a fantastic time and to thank you so much for arranging everything. We really enjoyed our stay at Alert Bay Lodge, Jen and Jack are truly amazing, and so kind and helpful, nothing was any trouble for them. All the arrangements worked really well, the whale and bear watching were completely awesome (not a word I use often or lightly!). We loved Vancouver Island and Alert Bay, and we’d love to be back there again one day. So, once again, our thanks for a truly memorable holiday. Best wishes + kind regards

I was surprised by the quality of the tour and how well-organized it was. I cannot express how blessed I felt I've been for having had a tour guide like Alex. He was not only amazingly accommodating and helpful, but also energetic, enthusiastic, and knowledgeable. His attitude in making this tour an everlasting memory was admirable. I certainly learned a lot from him, in both how to camp and how to make delicious vegetarian meals! In one occasion, a family from Spain got stuck outside their vehicle, with the car keys left inside. Alex could quite professionally re-open the doors and give them the keys back. I will never forget the gratitude in the eyes of that family after they received their keys. I'm very thankful to you and Alex for this experience and I'm looking forward to the earliest available time to fly back west and take another adventurous tour with you guys. Best Regards,
