New guests arrive from Campbell River between 3:30 and 4:00 after a forty-five minute flight. Once the plane is unloaded the guest move to the lodge were they are assigned rooms. Then it is to the front deck for a snack of fresh dungeness crab or prawns, cheeses, crackers, dips, coffee, tea, soft drinks or beer. After Angus answers questions and gives his “talk” about the operation of the lodge, outlines the days itineraries, floater suits are tried on you are ready for…..
All three day tours from the lodge: grizzly bear tour, whale watching safari and the extra day on the wild river depart at 7:30 or 8:00 o’clock depending on the spring or fall season. These same tours return between 3:30 and 4:30, which means a great picnic lunch. The whale watching picnic is normally served in the boat while drifting in the area of feeding humpback whales. The wild river trips has their lunch on the deck of Trapper Rick’s cabin overlooking a scenic river (see tomorrows posting). And as the photo shows the grizzly bear trip up Knight Inlet dine on a dock anchored in Glendale Cove. All the great lunches are packed by your experiences cook Madeline who has many invitations to go home with the guest and cook for them.
