Took the family for a full day of Northern Pike fishing on Great Slave Lake. Had the most amazing time. Great fishing, landing 3 over 40". Carlos Gonzalez was an fantastic guide and catered to our every need. He was especially good with our 12 year old son. He also prepared a gourmet lunch of fried white fish and candied... More

Recommended locally, reviewed TAdvisor and our experience was exciting, exhilirating and excellent (my highest 3 "ex" rating). We will soon book again with Carlos. I must mention something I have not seen in other reviews is that Carlos speaks French and Spanish in additiont to English. Ask him about the conditions and what to wear, etc. He gladly will answer... More

I had never gone fishing before. Carlos was great - showed us what to do and we had a great time. This 6 hr. Fishing trip was just the best. The pike were so beautiful and we put them all back after catching them. A really great experience.

Took a last minute four hour fishing trip with Carlos. He was able to accommodate us and I had a fantastic time. Carlos was professional, personable, and a lot of fun. I actually lost track of the number of fish I caught. He took us to all the good spots and we reeled them in. Highly recommend the fishing trip.

I took the Aurora viewing with Carlos and wasn't too sure what to expect. We took a 25 min drive via snowmobile to his cabin out on the lake and was blown away by the beauty and viewing area that was afforded to us ( we were a tour of 6 people). He prepare some great snacks and entertained us... More

My friend and I hired Carlos as a fishing guide on Great Slave Lake for 8 hours recently. When we first met up, he equipped us with waterproof jackets, pants and all the fishing gear needed. We got into a aluminum fishing boat equipped with pedestal chairs and a modern 90hp Yamaha for the trip down the lake. We spent... More

I would call Carlos the "fish whisperer". My sister, blessed with bad fishing luck, had not caught a fish in the last 2 years (and not for lack of trying). She was convinced that she wasn't going to catch anything in Yellowknife, but after 4 hours with Carlos she is a new woman! We both caught about 15-20 pike each,... More

After searching, we made up our mind to join 2-hr snowmobile with Carlos. One snowmobile per person! No regret all all!!!! Carlos is an excellent tour guide and instructor on snowmobile basic. He ensured all of us driving safe and had fun on the Great Slave Lake. We really had a wonderful experience \\^.^// The equipment and the outfits are... More

When I suggested going to Yellowknife, my husband and two kids, aged 10, thought I had gone mad. At the end of our four day trip, we all agreed that they had a great time! It wouldn't have been possible without Carlos, who pulled together the activities we wanted into a tour package. Carlos took us on a city tour... More
