About us

The middle door leads to the stairs to Budgies Backpackers and Sight Seers

Budgies Backpackers and Sight Seers, a budget accommodation hostel I started in May of 2012, in order to meet people, and fuel my guiding outfit of the same name.  We do tours of Juskatla inlet, the Yakoun river and Kumdis bird estuary, Masset inlet, and the surrounding area.  Our local staff were born and raised in the area and can offer advice as well as tours to guests.  We encourage socializing and playing music until bed and will do our best to teach you about the land and sea we call home.  Nightly fire-shows happen on the back lawn, and lessons in juggling are common as well.

Tours are available by kayak, canoe, jeep, and by foot with interpretive trails and many different ecosystems to observe.  We teach and practice sustainable wild food harvest, and provide recreational opportunities for all ages that cannot be found elseware.


We encourage the participation in cultural, and community events for those staying at our hostel, we will provide rides and explain proper behavior.
