Spectacular fishing, skilled guide, great equipment, outstanding food and service! Got to catch big salmon, got our limit and released many. It was a memorable experience! Full marks to the staff, and facility!

We concluded our Canada trip with the King Pacific and were not disappointed. This is an amazing and authetnic Canada experience, with superlative service and cofmfort. The food could be amped up a bit, but overall we have no complaints. It's expensive, but worth every penny.

“My family was never particularly outdoorsy, but we were relieved that we didn't have to travel far and that the burden of choosing a good spot to meet our son's in-laws for the first time didn't fall on us! My husband and I were prepared to be good sports and even steeled ourselves for some hiking, if not actual "roughing... More

King Pacific is absolutely one of the most special places on earth! In our many years of travel, Janet and I have never been to a place with better staff, better food combined with a most extraordinary setting. The staff could not have been more delightful and accommodating, yet totally unobtrusive even with it's high staff to client ratio. We... More

I don't know why I didn't review sooner but we visited KPL in mid June of 2012 and had a terrific time. Starting with booking the trip to our departure all of the staff was the best. Every evening Laura would inquire about our desired activities for the next day and she would soon be around to give you your... More

Lovely situation, good food and well organised activities. Not guest focussed though. Some customers receiving preferential treatment and arrogance of senior management. Not a nice experience. Try Nimmo Bay not far away. Sensational in every respect. King Pacific Lodge, no thanks.

My wife and I stayed at KPL over our honeymoon in Fall 2011. It really is something else. It may seem hard to imagine 5 star cross with wilderness and isolation, but that was KPL. The accommodations were lovely, and food was excellent. We saw tons of bears during our watching excursion, whales and seals everywhere, and loved settling down... More

I invited my father to KPL for a father-daughter bonding trip, and not knowing what to expect of such a remote place, it was the perfect resort to spend time with someone special. We had plenty of time to ourselves as well as with a personal guide on hikes, fishing, and whale-watching trips. At the same time, we really enjoyed... More

A group of us went to fish...and we came back with a lot more than fish. The resort is nestled in between a sit of mountains and islands off the coast of BC.

King Pacific Lodge is magnificent. The hospitality and accommodations are second to none, and the setting and activities are life altering. They take such care of their guests, one feels like they are visiting friends, with impeccable taste. I would absolutely recommend this to anyone who loves being pampered while experiencing breathtaking nature.
