British Columbia Fishing Lodge

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 in British Columbia 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, British Columbia. 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.

Join us in 2020!

All of us at Queen Charlotte Safaris Lodge are excited to offer excellent opportunities for world class fishing to all of our guests in British Columbia! During the early season of 2019 we saw multiple events that can help us forecast another excellent season in 2020.

There was a lot of top water bait activity, due to warmer water being pushed past the continental shelf and directly into our fishing grounds. While it was never classified as El Niño, we pay attention to the data.

The forecast for 2020 shows a 35-45 percent chance of an El Niño type event for 2020. Meteorological trends from 2019 along with forecast for 2020 shine the spotlight on early season warm water and excellent fishing conditions.

What this means for you...excellent weather, decreased pressure on the local fishery from other charters, and of course the longest days of the year in the truly magical setting of Haida Gwaii!
