Tour information at

Start our tour at the Bella Coola wharf, where you are picked up to be shuttled across the inlet on our boat the “Slim Jim”.  From the boat you can expect to see eagles flying by or the head of a curious seal popping up to say hello. At the cannery walk along a shaded trail overlooking the property to the old general store complete with stocked shelves of merchandise left behind. We have everything from old pop bottles to the fishermen's preferred brand of canned tobacco! From there travel to the old main office where you can look through original cannery records and newspapers from decades past.

Other highlights of the tour include viewing the old cannery workers residences, walking along the rocky beach and watching the thousands of wild salmon and trout spawn in the beautiful stream that runs though the property! Our tour ends with a light snack and coffee in the restored former manager's residence, which has a beautiful patio for sunny days, and a visit to our onsite gallery and gift shop.
