Knight Inlet Ldoge micro hydro report

Thursday, March 1st, 2012

Our micro hydro system has worked out well this winter. With almost 8 weeks of operation we have saved close to 4,000 litres of diesel fuel to date. As we gear up for the 2012 season and our preseason fisheries project we will have to switch to our diesel generator since our electrical requirements will be beyond what our micro hydro can produce. Still all in all we are very pleased with what we have been able to do this winter.

Knight Inlet Lodge is looking at other ways we can supplement our hydro requirements including solar and wind options that may be feasible in the very near future. Located in Glendale Cove, Knight Inlet Lodge is Canada’s premier grizzly bear veiwing destination.

South Solo, Kayaking to Save the Albatross

Wednesday, February 22nd, 2012

Former Knight Inlet Lodge guide Hayley Shephard has written a book about her  solo kayak trip around South Georgia Island in the Antarctic. South Solo – Kayaking To Save The Albatross will be on sale at Knight Inlet Lodge during the 2012 season. The book can also be purchased online at  www.amazon.com

South Georgia Island stands alone in the path of relentless storms and high winds in the South Atlantic Ocean. It’s the final resting place of famed explorer Ernest Shackleton and a place whose savage beauty has captivated wilderness guide and expedition leader Hayley Shephard for more than 1o years.

A story of solitary endurance, passion and survival, it’s an intimate look at one woman’s quest to find her place in the world.

Grizzly bear viewing update for the end of September

Friday, September 30th, 2011

The grizzly bear viewing at Knight Inlet Lodge has remained fantastic throughout the month of September. Lately it has featured rather friendly interactions between grizzlies that we believe are unrelated. This unusual activity includes a young male hanging around with an older male that Researcher Mel Claphm believes is about 4 years older. This pair also tolerated Flo, a young female, fishing for salmon with them for over an hour. Flo who was a regular in 2010 has only just returned this season. She is the grizzly bear that seemed to find our bus interesting last year.
