I was lucky enough to be invited along to a fishing trip at Walters Cove Resort in August 2015. The group was drawn to the lodge in the hopes to do some Tuna fishing which is not offered by many lodges on the West Coast. Needless to say, the entire fishing experience was fantastic, almost every member of our group... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Walters Cove Resort has been a premier fishing destination since it opened in 2004. The Resort is located on Walters Island in Kyuquot Sound, on the Northwest Coast of Vancouver Island. Known for its stunning views and explosive fishing, Kyuquot is a world-class fishing location. Under the management of 25-year sport fishing veteran Paul Dowler (formerly of Westcoast Resorts), Walters Cove Resort reopened in 2015 with a very successful season and we are quickly booking up for our 2016 Season. Why Choose Walters Cove Resort? -We use only the best fishing gear: Abel Reels for Salmon and Avet Reels for Halibut and bottom fish. -23 ft Grady Whites are made for the water ensuring a comfortable and productive fishing trip. -5 Star dinning and upgraded rooms with single, double or queen bed configurations -Capacity of 8-12 people means smaller groups can have the private lodge experience, allowing you to have an individualized fishing trip for your group -Fully Guided Fishing- if you are a beginner or master angler, our guide team ensures you have the experience you desire -Luxury, West Coast Resort Experience. Our resort is built in a traditional West Coast style, on pilings over the water. It features a large deck with over 12 hours of sun exposure, and a fireside lounge, featuring wood vaulted ceilings. When you are off the water you can relax in true west coast style. -A selection of arrival options, including our more economical drive-in (or shuttle) with a boat transfer to the resort, or more customized air arrivals. We can help you coordinate flights out of Seattle, Vancouver, Campbell River or Gold River. ... more   less
