Pacific Tidal Waters Sport Fishing Licence

IMPORTANT:  Fisheries and Oceans Canada (DFO) issue all Pacific Tidal Waters Sport Fishing (TWSF) licences electronically through the National Recreational Licensing System (NRLS). New Pacific Tidal Waters Sport Fishing Licences and Salmon Conservation Stamps for the 2024-2025 season are available for purchase effective April 1, 2024. Once you register, you will also be able to replace a lost licence or renew future licences through NRLS.

Heres the link to purchase your licence:

As a result we no longer issue the Tidal Waters Sport Fishing licence to our guests.  You will need to register online and purchase your licence prior to your arrival at the Lodge.  Please remember that you do need to purchase the Salmon Conservation Stamp as part of your licence!

If you have any questions or problems pertaining to your licence, call DFO’s licensing help desk directly at 1 877 535 7307.

Pleasure Craft Operators Card & Boater Proficiency Requirements

Anyone operating a boat in Canada must possess a Pleasure Craft Operator Card or attend a Boating Safety Orientation prior to leaving the dock.

Self-guided guests at all times should be in possession of a Pleasure Craft Operators Card (study guide/test available online) and Tidal Waters Sport Fishing Licence while in their boat.  Alternatively, they will need to attend a Boating Safety Orientation upon arrival. The individual(s) must initial each step of the prescribed orientation form, verifying that they have been suitably instructed in the safe operation of a small watercraft. The complete form must be signed by a QCL representative and the guest(s) must be in possession of this form and their fishing licence at all times while in their boat.

Guests fishing with a QCL Guide require only their valid Tidal Waters Sport Fishing Licence.

Service, facilities, accommodations, and food and drink were first rate at every level and venue and I can’t say enough about the friendly, cheerful attitudes presented by everyone. Staff provided information and direction from before we left, at the airport, on the plane, throughout our stay, and even on the return journey making sure we were hooked up with our gear and more important – our fish! Overall a memorable experience and a first class trip!
