A Luxury Fishing Experience

As its name suggests, Nootka Wilderness Lodge is a true fishing and adventure resort located in the heart of Nootka Sound on the West Coast of Vancouver Island. Some of the most exciting saltwater fishing in North America is found here, and Nootka Wilderness Lodge makes it yours to enjoy in safety and comfort.
Nootka Sound is Vancouver Island’s premier sport fishing destination for Chinook (King) and Coho (Silver) salmon. The lodge is known as one of the finest sport fishing resorts on the west coast. We are tucked into Galiano Bay, a short boat ride from the rugged West Coast where wildlife is abundant. Bears, wolves, whales, dolphins, eagles and otters are a few of the incredible wild species encountered daily.

Luxuriously Comfortable

The lodge itself is a spectacular floating resort with 2 incredible facilities. Nootka Wilderness Lodge provides all the comfort and personal attention that people hope for while away from home.

The main lodge features a dining room, sprawling lounge, and deck area for your enjoyment. After a full day of fishing and adventure relax in the sun on our large floating deck, or join friends for a drink in our cozy lounge.

The sleeping quarters are separate from the main lodge and is comprised of 12 guest rooms, each room having its own private ensuite washroom and shower facilities. Having our guest rooms on a separate lodge ensures a good nights rest, no matter what time you choose to lay down.

At mealtimes we create fresh West Coast cuisine, featuring local seafood as well as many other delightful dishes. We take pride in our food and it is most certainly another highlight of our lodge’s reputation.
