"You have given Joe and me an unmatchable, incomparable time in our lives. It was a testimony to the experience to see Joe without cell phone, email or concern for his usual life's responsibility - carefree and so happy. The 11-day time in our 30+ years together will always stand out as some of the very best of times. Part of what made it so great was experiencing it with the 5 of you, who so obviously took as great pleasure in all the we experienced as we did. Sharing it all made the difference. We'll never, ever forget the Maple Leaf - or you."
- Chris Schroeder, Wisconsin
"Wonderful trip and awesome sights. Thank you so much to crew and leaders for your skilled and personal dedication. A highlight of my life. I shall return!!"
- Roger Bowles, Westbank, B.C.
"Kevin, Maureen, Cecil, thank you for sharing your homes with me. My spirit has been nourished, my being totally immersed, my senses teased with sounds of the whale breathing, celestial feasts, flora and fauna. We have all joined you to be caretakers of the Great Bear Rainforest and the Kitlope and all that they encompass. Definitely a "Super Voyage"."
- Joanne Gizzie, Baltimore, Maryland
"Every day seemed to build on the one before. First we learned about the plants and animals from Sherry. Next, Kevin taught us about the struggle to save the rainforest. Finally, Cecil showed us how it should fit together, the stories he told of his people need to be a lesson to us all. While this was happening, the group continued to get closer. The friendships made will last for a very long time. I would like to say this was a trip of a lifetime, but then what would I have to say about my next trip with the Maple Leaf. THANKS."
- Jim Colvin, Los Angeles, California
"My 7th trip and one of the best. My fellow guests were a 'blast' to be with and the crew were wonderful. The scenery, whales, wolves, etc. co-operated and Cecil brought a spiritual side I had not experienced before. My spirit has been lightened and lifted. Thank you."
- Bill Fuller, Victoria, B.C.
"A marvelous trip - lots of laughs, adventures, hot springs, charismatic megafauna, fungi, algae, incredible food and a unique opportunity to see and learn about the geography from Cecil Paul's perspective and Andy's botanical knowledge. The best trip ever (so far) - see you in Haida Gwaii."
- Judith Thompson and Stephen Gauer, Vancouver, B.C.
"Better than billed - loved seeing the goats and bears…wonderful caring crew. Thanks for the memories."
- Marion Kerr, Courtenay, B.C.
"A charmed voyage. Better than we'd imagined. Great weather, awe inspiring sea and country, and wondrous wildlife sightings. Many thanks to the crew.
- Cheryl and Roger Moses, Medicine Hat, AB
