Simple logistics make Valerie's lodge my hands down favorite (and I've been 5 times now and brought my husband along on 4 of those trips). She has the longest run of salmon I've found anywhere. If you're also inclined to fight bottom dwelling brutes there is fantastic fishing for halibut, yelloweye rockfish and lingcod. I've never lost a day of...

I have fished all over Alaska and the northern tip of the Haida Gwaii (Queen Charlotte Island) Nothing is even close to what Queen Charlotte Safaris has to offer. The best Hospitality, Fishing and personal service. The customer service is superior. The jet boat experience through the narrows to the west side is awesome, as we were able to go...

Once again, superb fishing for salmon, halibut and ling cod, excellent guide, great food and Valerie's wonderful customer-oriented management of the whole operation! There is no better lodge in the best salmon fishing spot (Haida Gwaii) anywhere.

Absolutely amazing vacation including two days of some of the best fishing on Earth and 4 days of great hiking, sightseeing, and perspective changing cultural exploring. Queen Charlotte Safaris took all our desires and turned them into incredible reality. Lodge accommodations were very nice (not luxurious) but the food and staff's attention were outstanding. We met friends for life amongst...

Hate to give a review because I don't want someone competing for and taking my spot next year. Chef Kyle provided world class meals. Lunches were fresh and perfect for a days fishing. Go no where else for a fishing experience complete with Valerie's and her staff's hospitality.

Couldn't figure out for the life of me why only a handful of people left reviews about Queen Charlotte Safaris (QCS). Now I know, we want to keep this absolute gem to ourselves. From the moment you arrive you are greeted by the QCS crew anchored by Valerie with that adorable smile she has telling you, your home! Valerie really...

It has been said here many times about how great the service and fishing is staying at the Queen Charlotte Safaris lodge. Can can only say "Ditto". The trip to and from was easy for traveling internationally. The trip to and from the lodge and airport is really done well with what is sometimes like friendly military precision. The food...
