QCL, Haida Gwaii BC

Luxury… On the Edge of the Continent

Perched on the far western edge of Canada’s Pacific coast, QCL is surrounded by lush old growth forests and rich waters. Less than 3 hours from Vancouver by private charter jet and helicopter, discover the wild northwest, home of first-class fishing and an abundance of nature.
This is a place where modern-day travelers can revel in a taste of wilderness adventure perfectly blended with the comforts of warm, attentive hospitality in understated luxury lodging. We strive to deliver an unmatched experience, all around, by helping to create treasured memories – on the water or in the dining room. We understand that the definition of luxury varies, but our guests can expect personalized service as part of the QCL Experience. Come as you are, and we’ll take care of the rest.

Experience Fishing First Class

The ultimate fishing experience means something different to everyone. Whether you are eager to hit the water at dawn or prefer a slower start, savouring that second cup of coffee, we’re here for you.

Our fishing program is designed to take full advantage of the unrivaled fishing opportunities available in Haida Gwaii, along the westernmost shores of British Columbia, Canada. An abundance of herring and needlefish means productive fishing at any time throughout our season, offering the world’s premier fisheries for salmon and halibut.

Whether you’re a seasoned veteran or fishing novice, QCL provides a full range of services to meet every need. Our boat fleet is specifically designed for performance and safety – choose to fish on your own, self-guided, or benefit from the assistance of one of our professional guides.

You may come for the legendary fishing, but you will soon discover the QCL Experience is much, much more.

QCL is a top notch experience in all aspects. Fishing is fantastic. Lodge accommodations are second to none. Food is gourmet level. The best part are the people. The entire staff, from owners to the dock staff are extremely focused on making sure that guests have the best possible experience at all levels and make a very honest effort to get to know each and every guest. The bonus of all of the above is that it all occurs in the middle of pristine nature and among native wildlife.

A Bald Eagle swooping down to pick up talons full of needle-fish. The steady pull of a barn-door halibut from 250 feet down. Whatever your ultimate – you can find it at QCL!

    Groups & Event Planning

    Luxury Fishing! It’s hard to imagine the words luxury and fishing going together, but the Queen Charlotte Lodge definitely succeeds! Every detail is taken care of and you feel like your every whim is being catered to. Very well organized and the staff is incredible. The rooms are comfortable and very clean, and the food is excellent. The winning point in this particular lodge for our group was the fact that groups can go out on their own without a guide. We are experienced fishermen and wanted to be able to go out on our own in our own boats to fish the way we wanted. At the Queen Charlotte Lodge, this is an option. There is a guide at the beginning of the trip to give you the tips of the area, from what depth the fish are at, what bait/lure is working in the area, and where the fishing grounds are so you feel confident to go out and fish on your own. Incredible experience…Incredible operation.
