To all of our friends, guests & staff

We are sorry to inform everyone that we will not be running the main lodge in Winter Harbour this year.  This was a very tough decision, as we have been operating the full service lodge in Winter Harbour since 1999, and operating the all-inclusive charters since 1994 – actually starting with day charters and boat rentals back in 1981 in our Qualicum Beach location.  Many factors played into our decision, but the most important one was that after some 36 years of lodge operations on a larger scale, it has come time for us to focus on other things, most importantly, our families.

While the main lodge will be shut down, we will be doing some charters based out of The Outpost (the general store – ) in Winter Harbour.  The Outpost supplies the accommodations in their two bedroom suites that can accommodate up to 6 guests per suite, the guests do their own meals, and we will do the charter end of things.  This will be a smaller operation – two of our 26’ boats will be operating 4 night / 3 day trips starting mid June and going until Labour Day weekend, similar to the times that we have run in the past.  Please click on the above link for the accommodations portion and on our website for the charter details.

We have been fortunate as a family to be able to do what we love, for so long – so to all of our guests, friends, and staff – a very deep and sincere thank you, for without you, it would of never happened.
