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.

Well, after several good years of fishing in this lodge, this is our last year. There has been a steady decline year over year of the maintenance of the equipment, and delivery of what is advertised. Our last experience was the end of it. We received an email stating "pick up at 10 am at the seaward dock by water taxi". We arrive 15 minutes early, park, unload. No water taxi. Call the lodge at 10 am - lodge says "be there in 15 minutes". 25 minutes pass, call again, "can't get there due to fog". (The fog had lifted by that point - it was an early fog each day)". 11 am, lodge owner picks us up and telling us the generator was dead - $25,000 to fix it. We think "great, no electricity in the lodges". Owner hooks up a small generator so we can have a fridge and a lamp. Fishing was slow, but it seemed to be slow everywhere. Wind was picking up in the evening, so we think to power west, and troll back with the waves. Motor starts smoking as soon as we take off, so back to lodge we go. Turns out was a bent fuel tank nozzle. We didn't go far after that, and the motor was sort of bogging out at power, so not a good idea. (Guys in the other lodge crossed the channel - their motor crapped out in the wind on the way back - they limped and sputtered their way back). So, we stayed close. Finally catch a nice one, but it falls through the hole in the net. The boat was taking on a little water through a drain plug, but we hoped the lodge owner would notice it and sump out the boat, but nope. And i forgot to tell him, but when you do, you lose your boat for an hour "while he gets to it". Two days pass, and two diesel jerry cans come up the doc. Then the generator starts making noise. He opens our cabin door, flicks on the lights almost smugly, and closes the door. We made a comment about it, and he has some excuse and just says "it is what it is". Unless there are massive upgrades in the fishing equipment (boats/motors/downriggers), we feel it isn't safe to be anywhere on the water with the equipment as it is. There is little cell coverage, and if the wind picks up and you have a motor issue, you could be in trouble.

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!

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.

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
