Albeit a newbie to fishing, my previous experience had been disappointing to say the least and I debated never fishing again. Suffice it to say that all changed on this trip! The first day on the water, we maxed out the number of fish we could catch within the first hour! Second day we caught some tasty springs. I learned...

An Epic long weekend that will never be forgotten. I travelled from Perth Australia and was not, for a second, disappointed. The views, the food, and the service are all exceptional. Highly Recommend!

A few mates and I got an opportunity to stay at the lodge at the end of this summer. I don't know much about fishing so having experienced guides with us was important. Not only did they deliver an amazing experience but I also learned a ton in the process. The staff were very accommodating and the chef was exceptional;...

My friends and I had an amazing trip. The lodge is under new management and is now called the "Pacific Gateway Lodge". The first day on the water we went out to Big Bank just off the coast of Bamfield past the fishing lanes, we couldn't keep the fish off the hooks. We limited out two boats in less than...

Lodge does not have a/c, rooms don't even have window screens to keep out the multitude of mosquitos. Dinners OK, breakfast and lunch very less than adequate. There is a Huge corkage fee if you take your own liquor otherwise a really substandard beer, wine and spirit selection. (They'll probably have a capping fee for toothpaste next). Only TV and...

Headed up to Bamfield and stayed at Tyee Lodge with 19 people. Greeted on the dock by the guides ready for the transfer to the main lodge. Customer service was great. The lodge has stunning views of Barclay Sound. Was not sure what to expect but was blown away by both the great service in the lodge and the quality...

My company took us here last summer for a weekend fishing getaway. In fact, my company has been coming here every year for good reason. The resort is very nice and in the perfect setting. Food here is excellent and the staff very friendly and accommodating. The guides were excellent as well. We limited out every day on pretty much...

I can't wait to head back to the Tyee Resort some day soon. Our group of 12 spent 3 days fishing, our guide Andy was excellent. He was certainly a tough nut to crack, but we got a smile out of him within the 1st day :) As this as my first time fishing, and being the only rookie in...

I have been coming to this lodge since 2002, bringing a dozen friends and customers, I keep returning as this is an awesome experience. We have found the location to be the most beautiful and productive on the Island. The lodge is rustic and perfect for a west-coast experience. The meals have been outstanding. But the real reason we return...

Nice lodge with great views and good lodge food. That's where it ends. The host was surly and the guides obnoxious. The docks were in such poor condition we had to wash our shoes each time we walked on them. We also didn't know about the hike up the hill from the dock through the backyards down the driveway to...
