WEST COAST FISHING CLUB
Gwaii, British Columbia, Canada
FISH: Chinook (King), Coho (Silver),
The West Coast Fishing Club boasts
three unique lodges: The Clubhouse, The Outpost and North
Island Lodge. Each one offers a slightly different adventure,
but they all have one thing in common: convenient proximity
to the world's best ocean fishing experience for salmon, halibut
and other ocean catch.
The Clubhouse is a first-class destination resort. Rest assured,
there's no other property like it in Haida Gwaii - or possibly
anywhere on earth. Nothing has been spared in the quest to
make your trip truly exceptional. Seek asylum amid the ancient
beauty of Haida Gwaii. Enjoy spacious and sumptuous accommodations.
Receive the personable service you'd expect from any top-tier
hotel. And revel in a professional guided ocean fishing adventure
that goes far beyond your expectations.
The Outpost is the remotest of the three properties, located
on the farthest western edge of Haida Gwaii. No other property
in the region is more remote. Or more resplendent. Surrounded
by untouched wilderness, guests find tranquility in this private,
luxury oasis. They also find extraordinarily prolific runs
of salmon, halibut and other ocean catch.
For many guests, North Island Lodge feels like coming home.
That's because of its relaxed, friendly atmosphere and longstanding
- not to mention outstanding - staff. A floating facility
with breathtaking views, guests love being lulled to sleep
by the sound of lapping waves. And waking up to the world's
best ocean fishing experience. After all, the lodge conveniently
sits on top of a feeding ground for millions of salmon, halibut
and other ocean catch.
The West Coast Fishing Club's three lodges are located at
the crossroads of the migration routes for most maturing salmon
returning to spawn in the rivers and streams of either the
mainland coast, or Vancouver Island. Langara Island punctuates
the Gulf of Alaska, where all species of salmon roam to maturity
over their life cycles. It is the only point on the entire
migration odyssey which literally millions of salmon must
pass on their appointment with nature. No other location,
on either coast, sees a fraction of the numbers of salmon
that pass the lodges' doors each season. Since the total run
divides at Langara, any fishery south of the island will at
best have access to half the run. No wonder catch levels are
Each of The Club's three lodges has a unique flavour, which
creates a range of experiences for their guests.
The Clubhouse tastefully blends
5-star luxury and service with a warm and welcoming fishing
lodge design. Every well-appointed room features comfortable
beds, plush down duvets and private en-suites - several with
Jacuzzi tubs. Choose from a standard room, deluxe forest view
room, deluxe ocean view room or an owner's ocean view suite.
The Outpost may be in the wilderness,
but it is the polar opposite of camping. Its lounge area is
well-appointed with rich leather furnishings, a large fireplace,
a billiard table and satellite access. Step out onto the deck
and a soothing hot tub awaits you. There's also an elegant
dining room with a panoramic view that could temporarily cause
you to forget your magnificent meal.
Stepping in to the lounge at
North Island Lodge is like stepping into your own living room
- if your living room had sweeping 180º views of Parry
Pass and Lucy Island. Sink deep into a well-worn leather chair
with a celebratory drink after a triumphant day of man versus
fish. Swap stories while watching the sun slowly set Haida
Gwaii style on the expansive sundeck. Enjoy the large screen
satellite TV that adds fun and entertainment to the mix. Then
shuffle off to bed in one of twelve cozy rooms.
All packages include round-trip airfare from Vancouver International
Airport on privately chartered aircraft. This is followed
by a scenic trip by helicopter right to the doorstep of the
lodge. Upon arrival you will enjoy a gourmet brunch, change
into your fishing gear and be directed to your awaiting boat.
After a short commute to the fishing grounds, you will drop
your lines and you are off!
