Port Eliza Lodge

Port Eliza Lodge is based in Nootka Sound on the remote west coast of Vancouver Island. It consists of eight float houses with comfortable sleeping accommodation and a wonderful dining and lounging area. If you are looking for a perfect getaway for your family and friends, you have found the right place. Enjoy the amazing waterfront views, barbecues, breathtaking nature, and the fantastic fishing opportunities!

Target large mature summer Chinook Salmon on their way back to local rivers. Head to the outer shores of Nootka and Vancouver islands to add Coho Salmon to the list and explore the shallow waters. Enjoy the intense bites of Salmon and spot sea otters, sea lions, and whales passing by.

Those anglers who want an even more challenging experience will be able to fish the offshore waters known as “Highway” for Halibut, Chinook Salmon, Rockfish, Lingcod, and other species. If the weather cooperates, you may also try your hand at Albacore Tuna fishing later in the summer.

The company’s fleet of boats is fully outfitted with all the equipment needed for a successful fishing charter and guided by experienced anglers. Your trip will take place on a 26’ Aquasport vessel, which can take up to 3 passengers plus the guide. The boat comes powered by two 150 HP Suzuki engines and is rigged with top-notch gear and tackle for you to use.

All rods, reels, tackle, lures, and a complimentary fish cleaning service will be provided.
