Located in the heart of British Columbia’s central coast, Drifter’s Cove offers short and long-term cabin rentals on Denny Island in the Great Bear Rainforest. The 70-acre property near Bella Bella is in a cove that hugs the water’s edge of Lama Pass on the inside-passage.

The central attraction on the property is a series of hand-crafted cabins which offer long term residents and passers-by the opportunity to immerse themselves in nature in a place untouched by urbanization. Humpback whales, orcas, porpoises, and other wildlife can be seen while sitting on the decks of the cabins.

Here there are no roads, no power lines, and no high-rise buildings. All of the property’s structures are hand-crafted by the owner from local wood including that which has drifted ashore.

There are two private cabins suitable for four to 5 people. Each offers a wood burning stove and modern kitchen with a propane generated fridge and oven. The washrooms include flush-toilets and heated showers. One cabin overlooks a gentle cove and the other Lama Pass and Hunter Channel. Both offer the opportunity to view local wildlife.

Common space on the property includes large dock, heli-pad, a whale observation deck with a multi-purpose cabin overlooking Lama Pass, a sauna and an outdoor bathtub. There is plenty of room on the property for those who wish to pitch a tent and sleep under the stars.


Available activities include fishing, kayaking, swimming, and recreational scuba diving for those who have their own gear. There are a few motorized boats available for if you would like to venture further from Drifter’s shore and view some of the local sites or drop a trap or line in the water and catch dinner.

Drifter’s Cove offers fresh air, breathtaking views and off-the-grid living for those who would like to “catch the drift” and reconnect with nature.
