After the breathtaking direct 90 minute seaplane flight over the seemingly endless snow capped peaks of the coast mountain range, you arrive at our floating lodge. You are greeted by enthusiastic, energetic & hard working staff who are ready to ensure personalized attention to each guest.
First impressions are of the beauty of the lush density of the temperate forest that surrounds you. The majestic firs & cedars of the West Coast Rainforest (a.k.a. The Great Bear Rainforest, a world heritage site). Strawberry moss climbs the rocky shores where the tree line ends. Herons can be seen as they fish off the end of our docks while bald eagles perch on tree limbs nearby. The natural beauty of our location is truly staggering. On the docks of the fishing lodge we focus on cleanliness, comfort & convenience. Our aim is to exceed your expectations.
Besides the trophy salmon fishing that makes Rivers Inlet world famous, what is it that makes the Rivers Inlet Sportsman’s Club such a special place to spend your valuable time & money? What sets us apart from all the other places to fish in the world, other lodges & all the other vacations you could possibly go on?
Years in Business – Family owned & operated for over 35+ years. The Kelly Family established the lodge in 1984. Being owner/operated affords our customers a very high level of service. Our attention to all the little details is what makes for a fabulous fishing adventure. We really care & it shows in every aspect of our operation.
Amazing Staff – Each summer almost all our staff return for another season. Their knowledge, experience & sincere level of care is what allows us to deliver such a high level of customer service.
Direct Flights – We fly directly from Vancouver in sleek, modern, & fast Cessna Caravan seaplanes. This first-class trip takes only 90 minutes & you land right at the lodge with typically no delays or plane changes.
Private Fishing Lodge – We are a private facility catering only to our guests. There is no public access to our facilities. We are not a marina with random people coming & going. We are a high-end lodge with exclusive access to our guests only.
Free Wi-Fi – We recommend that you try & disconnect from the outside world during your stay, but it is right there at your finger tips if you want/need to stay in touch.
Spacious Accommodations – Double occupancy rooms with a private entrance to a cedar-lined room with en-suite bathrooms & very comfortable double beds (single or triple rooms may be available on booking your trip).
Hearty Meals – All chef prepared hearty meals are included as well as a hot late-night snack.
Intimate Dining – Set times for dining in our cozy dining room where the round tables allow for great conversations (arrangements may be made for packed lunches or dining at other times).
Inexpensive Alcohol – Alcoholic beverages are available at liquor store prices. There is hidden savings in our wholesale bottle “self-service” alcohol purchasing system.
I have to say that you run a first class operation. Everything was really well done from the fishing to the staff, food & accommodations. Every year I take my daughter on a “daddy/daughter” vacation. I was a bit nervous about taking my twelve year old on a fishing trip. I was worried she wouldn’t have fun or that we wouldn’t get the most out of our one bonding week per year. Looking back on it, our trip to Rivers Inlet was a home run. We talk about it constantly (usually while eating the salmon we caught) & I know it will be a life-long memory. It was perfect.
