Flying over Cape Scott Provincial Park with Wilderness Seaplanes was a remarkable experience. Not just because I’m an aviation nerd, who got to co-pilot a Grumman Goose, but a Kwakwaka'wakw song came to me and I never heard -- let alone sung it before. This happens from time to time, even though I'm not a singer, and been told it’s the ancestors trying to connect with you.

Hello Louisa,

I just wanted to reach out to thank you for the incredible support you...
provided to our DBC team, to Global TV, and to your community in the recent
broadcast from your region.

I understand we needed some last-minute help with re-arranging the logistics
for the Global TV feature and you had terrific ideas for the TV crew and
some very interesting back-stories (with perfect visuals) to share with
them. My team very much appreciated your diligence in following up with
them and the Global producer acknowledged that you really came through for
all of us. That's the kind of smart, inspired service I'm sure your
visitors receive every day from you!

Thank you very much for your support and extra effort. We are looking
forward to a terrific year in tourism across BC and we hope your season is

Miles and miles of ocean and beach to explore, beautiful. I'm headed to the west coast in May and can not wait; a beach I haven't been to.
