2023 Summer Rates

Bella Coola Explorer packages are available from June 23 to August 31, 2023.

Guests have the option of choosing a Small Group package or upgrading to a Private package.

Here are the differences; 

Small Group = Social + Value

Wilderness experiences are so much better in small, intimate groups. Small Group packages offer the knowledge and expertise of experienced guides to guests travelling in groups of 1 to 6. Itineraries are set and there will be a maximum of 6 guests per guide. Activity substitutions are possible based on availability and subject to an upgrade fee.

Private = Flexibility + Exclusivity

Whether you’re looking for adventure or prefer to leisurely explore, Private packages allow you to tailor your itinerary to suit your interests, you preferred pace, and you physical ability level. On Scenic River Drifts you will get to use a McKenzie Drift Boat, which is the best option for serious photographers (as it has a solid base and sides) versus an Inflatable Raft, which is used in our Small Group packages.

Travelling with children? Small Group packages are suitable for groups with guests 12 and older. If you have children 11 years or younger, you will need to book the Private package. If your family is 5 or more people, please contact us for special group rates.

Travelling solo? Welcome! The Single Occupancy upgrade is $400 per night for Small Group packages, and $500 per night for Private packages.
