NETFLIX Island of the Sea Wolves

Sea Wolves Malei Island

Netflix’s “Island of the Sea
Wolves” 3-part series was filmed in the same geographical area as Malei Island Resort.  Not only has a sea wolf been spotted from the lodge’s kitchen window and observed along the shorelines but an abandoned sea wolf den was discovered at the base of one of the island’s large cedar trees. This wolf was swimming between two small Islands at the bottom of the Gordon Group. Between Port Hardy and Malei Island. Guessing the dinner menu looked better on the next Island.

Guest Reviews

“I've been to Hawaii, Mexico, Sri Lanka, the Caribbean, and many more places yet this has been my favorite trip of all time! From the salt-water hot tub (built right into the rocks) to waking up to humpback whales breaching in the harbor, this was a magical trip from beginning to end!"

Clint Nelson Canada

"Before we even reached the island by private water taxi, we had seen whales! Even though you are remote, the lodge is extremely comfortable and has everything you need. Whether you are the type of person who likes to stay close to home or more on the adventurous side, you’ll fall in love with Malei and the surroundings."

“What an amazing place! I was immediately struck by the beauty and silence of this incredible island. Nestled in a natural harbour, facing the open ocean to the west and north. You feel alone in the wilderness while knowing you have the safety and pleasure of an amazing lodge equipped to provide the necessities of life for city folk like us. Incredible experience!"
