Covid-19 message to my valued customers

Due to the covid-19 pandemic, we are following public-health guidelines and temporarily suspending operations.

We respectfully commit to all Haida Gwaii residents that no charters will run and no off-island employees or contractors will be working until deemed safe by local and provincial governments.

You’ll still be able to book dates for 2020 & 2021 and for now, no deposits are required.

When the situation improves and public health guidelines indicate it is safe, we will be ready to go!

For clients who are booked on affected dates, I will apply your deposits to another trip. If you are unable to come later in the summer, or if the pandemic continues, I’ll apply your deposit to your choice of dates next year. I hope you understand the situation and that your deposits will be carried through to a date when you can safely enjoy your trip with me.

For those guests that know they won’t be visiting Haida Gwaii in the future, for whatever reason, I will refund your deposits.

I look forward to resuming my normal services, and as always I look forward to fishing with my guests. In the meantime, stay informed, be kind, and above all, keep yourself and your loved ones safe.
