If a picture is worth a thousand words then we have so many stories to tell at QCL! A visit to the Media Centre tells you how it is. You can investigate all of our facilities, check out the fishing grounds, or even the weather!

Queen Charlotte Lodge is heaven on earth. This spectacular resort is nestled in the quiet bay of Naden Harbor, only a 25 minute boat ride to some of the best fishing grounds the west coast has to offer. QCL’s customer service is top notch on all levels, and accommodations are cozy, comfortable and make you feel right at home. While out on the water, look forward to a delicious hot lunch on the MV Driftwood, a beautiful 115ft boat built in the 1940’s that also serves as accommodations for hardcore anglers that don’t want to leave the fishing grounds, to ensure an early start when searching for the coveted Chinook salmon. Fish are plentiful, and so are the great times to be had with fellow anglers.
