Welcome to Queen Charlotte Safaris

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

Discover one of the few remaining uncrowded and unspoiled regions in the world when you visit the remote islands of Haida Gwaii, British Columbia, Canada. The pristine and remote islands lie just south of the Alaska Panhandle and rest on the western edge of the continental shelf. They are legendary for their rich First Nations Haida native culture.

Our 2018 season has wrapped up and what a season we had! plenty of Chinook salmon ranging from 22 to 30 lbs, a record number of 30 lb. plus , and our 2018 lodge record weighing in at 52.5 lbs. Our halibut and bottom fishing was outstanding all season. Many guests left with catching a “Grand Slam”. It’s time to get your 2019 fishing trip booked!

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!

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

What separates us from other fishing destinations is your opportunity to catch Chinook salmon all summer long, every salmon passing by our fishing grounds spend time feeding in our rich bait infested waters then move on to their destination, these are transitory fish, not terminal fish. Our coastline also has numerous pinnacles and reefs; these areas provide the perfect habitat for Halibut, Ling Cod, Yellow Eye and several other species of Rockfish. Fishing with Queen Charlotte Safaris allows you to take more fish home and catch more fish per person than any area on the West Coast, including Alaska.

Our beautiful, rustic lodge overlooks the bay in Sandspit and is only minutes from the airport. We are ideal for groups, corporate retreats, families, couples and the single angler. The fish tales begin on your way back to the lodge each night and continue at the dinner table over delicious meals prepared by our chef. After dinner step outside onto our spacious deck and watch the eagles soar above you.
