My dad and I have been fishing the North Pacific ocean for the past 15 years. We found Queen Charlotte Safaris due to my brother-in-law traveling there on a fishing trip with his father. The next year we booked a fishing trip Q.C.S. taking with us 3 fathers and sons. From the moment we arrived at the airport the trip was filled with laughter and great memories.
At the lodge the food was one of our favorite parts, obviously we were there for the fishing. From the staff of the lodge to the captains of the fishing fleet you can’t miss having a great time.
We have fished the beautiful waters of Mexico and way up to the North, Alaska, Sandspit and its fisheries is a beautiful area. It is a hidden jewel on this earth. I mean by this, the fishing area does not see a lot of over-fishing. We have experience less and less amount of fish going home with us over the past 10 years, so we booked QCS again. We caught more fish and were pleasantly surprised by of all the changes to improve our experience, with the addition of Valarie’s dad (Dave from Idaho always added a warm welcome to the lodge.) Dave made the coffee for everyone in the morning before breakfast and saw all of us off to go fishing. He told me that he loved everyday in Sandspit and spending time with all of us guests. Dave made the lodge feel like home. His stories are truly amazing and having dinner with Dave made it even more special.
The Kelly Family highly recommends fishing and staying at Queen Charlotte Safaris Lodge. It is a great experience for the most hardcore fisherman or a novice for the first time. Thank you Valerie and your dad Dave for allowing three generations of the Kelly family to stay and fish one of Canada’s hidden secrets.
