Meet Keunboong Hwang & Jae Suk Lim

Keunboong Hwang and Jae Suk Lim took over the Sea Raven Motel back in 2015 after nearly 40 years of successful operation. The husband and wife duo have continued the success and plan to elevate the experience of their guests. Everyone is so friendly in Haida Gwaii, so much so that the sentiment becomes infectious. Just a simple walk down a trail ends up in a chat with a neighbour or fellow entrepreneur. The couple truly enjoys how easy it has been to connect with the community.

The main attraction, however, is without a doubt the endless access to nature. Both Keunboong and Jae wish to share the local beauty with their visitors and have a few favourite spots of their own. A place near and dear to their hearts is the Spirit Lake Trail in Skidegate, an absolute gem of a nature walk.

For the Sea Raven Motel owners, a visit to Haida Gwaii isn’t complete without the exploration of the Haida people’s culture. There is so much to learn and the historical customs and traditions offer true insight to island life. The Gwaii Haanas offer guests a look at the pristine and untouched ecological beauty of the rugged coastline and indigenous history spanning thousands of years.
