Our first time at Queen Charlotte and all expectations were exceeded. The staff and Ed our guide were awesome. Every detail of our trip was seamless. We cannot say enough good things about our trip. The food was five star all the way. The fishing was wonderful. This was a bucket list dream trip and we could have have made a better decision.
This was my first time at QCS, but will not be my last. I've fished Alaska a few times, and while I've had some success, it doesn't compare with the the offerings at Queen Charlotte Safaris. Not only is the fishing outstanding and with more liberal take limits, you can't beat the wonderful hospitality Valerie and her entire staff provides. Her fishing guides are very knowledgeable and helpful at providing a great fishing experience. The lodge staff is equally talented at seeing that you get the best when it come to food and beverage along with a very clean and comfortable lodging experience. Unfortunately, Covid-19 prevent a return in 2020. but I look forward to returning in 2021 and years afterwards. Thanks QCS for making my dreams a reality...
I have been going to Queen Charlotte Safaris since 2006 and it has always been an amazing, memorable experience. The fishing is great, the accomodations excellent, and the food and staff are terrific. Valerie has also helped to coordinate other adventures for us such as kayaking and tours of the islands. I have taken my family there starting when my children were 11 and 9 and they fished and had a great time as well.
This lodge is truly at hidden gem up in Haida Gwaii! The staff and guides were amazing and made us feel right at home. The boat ride thru the Skidegate Channel offered spectacular views on the way to the fishing grounds. The boats are well equipped and the guides were very knowledgeable of the area. The fishing was amazing! We caught everything from Salmon, Halibut, Ling cod and Rock Cod! My biggest was a 32 pound Chinook caught right at the wall. It was nice after a long day fishing to return to the lodge for a great dinner. I can't wait to go back next year.
Great lodge if you are serious about catching lots of fish of four species: Chinook Salmon, Ling Cod, Halibut, and Rock Fish. Coho Salmon are also available but both Chinook and Coho are seasonal. The lodge is comfortable and food service is great. Dinners feature a single entree with sides. Entrees this trip were salmon, dungeness crab, halibut, and steak and shrimp. Substitutions are available. Valerie and her staff do a great job. 3 days of fishing this trip on 30ft aluminum Alaska-style boat with 4 guests. Caught an estimated 750lbs of fish. Local processor cleans, vacuum packs, flash freezes, and packs to order for transport included in your lodge fee.
