It was a wonderful trip. Could there be improvements (?), yes. The rooms are below Motel 6 caliber. The noise in the dining room is sooo loud I often left early. But, the biggee was how our fish was treated. We arrived at Vancouver Airport with fish that had not even been frozen, none was solid. It had never reached...

Hippa Island is a true, one in a lifetime adventure. The operation is first class all the way. Practically everything needed is included in your trip, including chartered airfare from Vancouver to Sandspit Airport (probably the smallest airport I have ever been to!) and a very exciting helicopter ride across the island to the lodge. All meals are included as...

I'm really not sure how our fishing experience and holiday could have been better. The chartered flight from Vancouver was comfortable and offered all of the amenities of a larger airline. Including free champagne and orange juice! The helicopter ride from Sandspit was amazing and I was even allowed to ride next to the pilot. We were greeted by the...

From the welcoming reception line when getting off the helicopter, to hooking into beautiful fish in the most picturesque setting imaginable, to feasting on gourmet food, to sipping cocktails while watching a bear stroll by....this place is just flat out perfect.

In a truly awesome part of the world. Untouched by development and beautiful in the diversity and magnitude of the ocean setting. Lodge was well set up and logistics were strong getting people in and out. Plan to go back if you ever visit. Limited out easily and took the time to enjoy the whales, porpoises and amazing beach views....
