The Bell Ringer

Where it all comes together at the end of a great day on the water, the Bell Ringer is the place to be! Cold drinks and hot appys match perfectly with new friends and stories of the fish that did – and didn’t, get away!
The Bell Ringer

The Liveliest Place in Naden Harbour

Often imitated but never duplicated, the Bell Ringer has emerged as one of the favourite venues to revel in the QCL Experience.

Located on the dock, the Bell Ringer concept is simple… it’s a lively social house for all anglers, whether it’s in preparation for the day or sharing your fishing stories of the ones that did, and didn’t get away, at the end of it!  It’s a place for meeting, eating and drinking.


For guests eager to drop their lines, the Bell Ringer serves as a Grab + Go Café each morning. Available 30 minutes prior to earliest boat off the dock, order yourself a spiked coffee, fresh breakfast feature and grab a bag of house-made goodies for snacking.


Come late afternoon, the Bell Ringer is the place to be; the ambiance is unmatched. Lively music, laughs and bragging rights from the day fill the space. As fish totes are dragged through the venue to the weigh scale, grab a beverage and snack on the appetizer feature of the day.


For those that are looking to experience something quintessentially QCL, we offer the Bell Ringer Seafood Boil. Introduced to the program some years ago, this dinner is by reservation only. Available at an additional cost per guest, this semi-private Bell Ringer Seafood Boil dinner is an experience unlike any other. Casual, vibrant and mouth-watering.

QCL Media Centre

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!

The facilities really are top notch and the staff are friendly and very accommodating. The hard working dock staff always ensured the boats were fully stocked and ready to go whenever we were. We especially enjoyed checking out the day’s catches, swapping stories and chowing down on some yummy appies at the Bell Ringer on the dock at the end of the day.
