Decade Club

"It's no wonder you have so many repeat guests here; great fishing, nice clean rooms, your fabulous Chef, the staff and crew are always two steps ahead of our needs. I was very impressed with the professional and cheerful nature of the hard working crew here at Ole's. I'll definitely be back"
Carl Lind, CA
"Ernie thanks for an amazing trip. Our group caught huge Chinook, lots of Coho and a bunch of Halibut on the same trip. Coming to OLE's is why we put up with everything we do all year, just so we can make it back one more time. The guys are already lining up to sign up for next year. You and your crew know what it takes to keep my clients happy, thanks for an incredible Trip. Looking forward to next summer already."
Joe Broussard III, CO
"Choosing a fishing Trip to British Columbia to celebrate our 22nd wedding anniversary, my wife Lori said " all I want to do is show up and have someone handle everything" Well Ernie and his staff did just that. We had a wonderful time fishing for Salmon and Halibut, the accommodations and meals were wonderful! . This was the most enjoyable anniversary experience we have ever had"
-Ray Camacho, ID
"..we've been to just about every place you can mention on the coast, and we keep coming back to Ole's Hakai Pass. It's not just the fishing, which is incredible, it's so much more. Every year we notice something new, you could come here for 10 years and never get bored. Add to that the finest crew and you've got us hooked"
Bill and Sandy Challenger, BC
Although we have been there numerous times, each trip has 1st-time guests. Yet when the plane docks at Ole's & the door opens, Ernie & his staff know everyone's names, including guests he's never met! The food is excellent, especially BBQ night, the rooms are very comfortable, the boats & gear are excellent & this is the best crew on the coast. If you have never tried salmon fishing & want to give it a try, or are a fisherman, you owe it to yourself to try Ole's where everything is 1st class.
Bryan Cousineau, British Columbia, Canada
