Welcome to Queen Charlotte Safaris

We bring an amazing experience to
Haida Gwaii, British Columbia, Canada

What separates Queen Charlotte Safaris Lodge from other fishing destinations is the protected, calm waters and the opportunity to catch Chinook “King” Salmon all season long, with zero down time. Every Pacific salmon passing by our fishing grounds feed in our inlets and bays, then move onto their destination. It’s literally a feeding frenzy! The Chinook Salmon that pass by our lodge are “Transitory Salmon”, which makes fishing around Haida Gwaii very unique. We specialize in catching Trophy Chinook Salmon and the additional bonus, our coastline also has numerous pinnacles and reefs; these areas provide the perfect habitat for Pacific Halibut, Lingcod, and several species of Rockfish.

Our beautiful, rustic lodge overlooks the gorgeous Shingle Bay in Sandspit. You will enjoy the wonderful atmosphere, our friendly staff and their attention to detail. Dinner time is always a highlight for our guests after a long day of fishing. We proudly serve many dishes indigenous to the islands prepared by our seasoned chef. After dinner step outside onto our spacious, relaxing deck and watch the eagles soar above you.

• Higher Catch limits • longer fishing season • Less Crowded •

Haida Gwaii, the Queen Charlotte Islands are renowned to be the most successful Salmon Fishing in the world. Why? The Charlottes are comprised of over 150 islands providing rich feeding grounds that essentially force every salmon in the Pacific Northwest into a feeding frenzy before they continue on their migration. The result is virtually no down time in-between runs. What does this mean? It means that we have salmon all season long and no down time catching fish, they’re always passing through. This truly is the longest and largest salmon run in the world!
