We have a very unique fishing lodge, our lodge is located on the northern tip of Vancouver Island on the inside.WE fish for salmon five minutes away from the lodge,With some of the best fishing ground's on Vancouver Island. With halibut, ling cod , yellow eye and rock not even 15 to 20 minutes away. With out the big swells you will find on the west coast of Vancouver Island.

We visited Port Hardy after the busy summer season. Dave, the lodge owner, picked us up at the Government Dock. About 20 minutes boat ride later, we arrived this beautiful remote place tucked behind the Duval Island for the first time. We stayed at the 3 bedroom chalet. The kitchen is well stocked with necessities; rooms are clean and comfortable; hot water is always available during our stay.

The wether was not cooperating this time, strong wind, rain and cold, but the owner tried his best to make sure our stay is as comfortable as possible. I really enjoyed the wood burning stove which made the place cozy and warm. I had sat many hours on the recliner reading books by the burning stove and fallen asleep like a baby.

I wasn’t expecting fishing to be good given the timing and bad weather. Salmon has returned to rivers, halibut long left for deeper seas, but Dave still took us out in his boat to fish his secret spots. We caught a lot of fish, encountered whales playing, watched various wildlife and beautiful scenery. Returned to Dock, Dave packed the fish up nicely using his commercial grade vacuum packer for our trip home.

The lodge is not an all inclusive operation, it offer many options. It worked for me, especially spending the quality time with the family in a remote west-coast setting.

If you want to Relax, this is the place! If you want to catch Fish, this is the place! If you want to start fishing within 300 yards of the dock, this is the place! We landed several species of Salmon within sight of the lodge including Chinook, Pinks, and Coho, not to mention all the other typse of fish there. It is obvious that this was a great spot to fish as many locals make there every day. Without doubt the best fishing lodge I've ever been to. Simple, and clean. The owners Dave and Lisa are wonderful people, not only unique and genuine, but down to earth. They do everything they can to improve your experience. It is obvious they care about every persons experience at their lodge. Thank you for all the great advice about where to fish and what to use when self guiding. They made us feel and treated us like old friends. Captain Eric, simply outstanding! Thank you as well for not only great advice and great guided fishing experience, but also showing us some of the sights and sharing with us.
The whole experience was exactly what a fishing lodge should be.......FISHING FISHING FISHING.

My best friend and I visited Duval Point Lodge the week of Aug 8th for our annual "Sons in law" fishing trip. We met Captain Dave at the public dock in Port Hardy Monday morning - loaded an enormous amount of stuff into his boat and headed out to the lodge. From this point on we found Mr. Beckman to be a very attentive host. He made an extra effort to make sure that we had everything we needed and more during our stay.

This place is great with a beautiful location nicely removed from civilization but still close enough that you have reasonable access to Port Hardy if needed. The cabins exceeded expectation with plenty of room for the two men that we put in each. They are well kept, clean and appeared to be quite new overall. With a bunk bed in each cabin a 3rd person could easily be added if you wanted to.

Every evening Captain Dave dressed out, vacuum sealed and froze our catch. One of the first evenings he came up to our cabin and set up some rigs of his favorite lures while listening to our bad jokes and general BS. We used those lures extensively and had exceptional success using them.

Ultimately we went home with a nice bunch of fish, some great new fish stories and a new friend - many thanks Dave!

Our family of four, being myself, husband and two boys(8 and 5) spent the past 5 days at Duval point Lodge. The lodge was clean, comfortable and welcoming. Dave, Lisa and their entire family treated us with great hospitality, it was clear they wanted us to have the best experience possible. The boat was great and we were given great fishing advice. The location is perfect and right on the ocean. We saw whales daily and received a dolphin show within 10 feet of our boat that will create a memory of a lifetime for us all. The best part of the trip was when we were loading up our van as we were leaving and our 8 year old son asked if we could come back next year for his birthday. We will definitely be back next year and can't wait to return!

With such a beautiful location it is a shame Duval Point Lodge has been allowed to get so run down. The 16’ aluminum boats are not sea worthy and there is little to no safety equipment with them. No working bilge pump, one broken paddle, no navigation lights, throw rope or really any safety items. The fishing gear that’s included with the rental is just junk. On land it’s not much better. The main lodge is in decent shape but the outbuildings are in various states of disrepair and the grounds in general look like a garbage dump. The owner has a million excuses but in the end it’s just a good example of why some people should not own a business. All in all, it was the most disappointing experience we’ve ever had at a lodge.

You wont find a more authentic fishing lodge on the west coast period. Dave and Lisa are as real as it gets. They shared their knowledge of things and made us feel very welcome. The fishing is top notch and right off the dock

The most beautiful location and the service is stellar! Everything we needed and the lodging was perfect for our large group. Beds were comfortable, fully stocked kitchen, docking convenient and easy, and fishing was right outside our door. Cannot recommend enough. Thanks Dave and gang!

We had a great time at Duval Point Lodge. Dave has recently upgraded the docks, brand new steel docks, very stable and easy to tie up.
The lodges all are in great shape, had everything we needed for our trip.
You CPAP folks, bring an extension cord!
We've already booked for next year, could not be closer to the fish if you slept on your boat.
Chelsey's first class during booking, always responsive. Ian is always attentive to our needs and Dave taught us some new tricks on where to fish, how to fish and even fish cleaning advice.
First class and we'll be coming back.

Great time, love the setting of the lodge, great fishing, Dave’s knowledge of the fishing spots really helped us out. Port hardy itself has some great little restaurants and pubs. The locals on the docks were also very helpful. Some of the best fishing I’ve experienced.

We had the best time. the view was oh so good from our cabin. The fishing was great as Dave knew just where to go! We also didn't plane on whale watching but were so lucky that Dave took us to a spot he said would be good & it was an awesome spot. We saw saw Dolphins & whales 3 out of the 5 days we were there ! We Loved our trip & every thing about it!! Hope you get the chance to go
