"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

Getting to Hakai Pass for fabulous British Columbia salmon fishing and halibut fishing-
Once in Vancouver, your Ole's Hakai Pass all-inclusive fishing adventure begins at the Seair Seaplane Terminal. Our departure from the Seair float plane dock is at 8:00 a.m. on Tuesday or Friday on a Cessna Caravan charter flight with Seair Seaplanes.  You will arrive in Hakai Pass after a one hour and 40 minute direct flight  to Ole's floating fishing lodge in Barney Bay, British Columbia. You will arrive at the fishing lodge in time for a West Coast snacks, your orientation and a moring fish before lunch then an afternoon of great salmon fishing adventures.

The return trip.
On the return portion of your BC fishing trip you will be arriving in Vancouver at about 12:00 noon on Tuesday or Friday. Please allow 4-5 hours for connecting flights if you plan to continue traveling on departure day, to allow for transfer to the main terminal or because of delays due to fog, weather or air traffic which are beyond our control. We recommend staying over in Vancouver and departing the following morning, refreshed and relaxed.

Some points to remember which will assist you in making your BC fishing trip with Ole's a smooth one:

  • Luggage should be of the soft-sided or duffle bag style and limited to 20lbs. per person, allowing room for your fish on the return leg of your fishing trip. For guests who wish to leave some luggage at the terminal Seair offers Free Luggage storage for additional baggage that you do not want to bring to the lodge.
  • If some one needs to contact you in case of an emergency they can call our Campbell River office at 250-287-8303 and have the message relayed to Ole's Fishing Lodge as we don't have cell phone service at Hakai Pass.  We do have direct satellite telephone service for emergencies as well by calling 1-604-629-9866. 
  • We do have complementary wireless satellite based internet at Ole's so feel free to bring your wireless devices or lap top computers.
  • Remember to bring your camera (extra memory cards and charger), sun screen and sunglasses. Also pack some warm comfortable clothing (layers work best), fleece items, wool socks and gloves as the mornings can be cool. We have everything else you will need for fishing including waterproof floater suits, rubber boots and lucky fishing hats. Our waters are usually very calm and protected but just in case you are susceptible to motion sickness, be sure to bring what works for you. And don't forget your swimsuit for some after fishing relaxation in the hot tub. Feel free to bring along your favorite hard beverage.
  • Plan to arrive at the The Seair Seaplane Terminal 60 minutes before departure to allow for check in and boarding. Seair offers free coffee to enjoy while you wait for your flight to depart or your shuttle to arrive. Check in at the Seair Seaplane Counter for the Ole's Charter to confirm departure dock, air traffic and weather updates.

Guests arriving the night prior to trip commencement can take advantage of the complimentary shuttle service provided by the hotels recommended in Vancouver.
  • We recommend an overnight stay in Vancouver to take advantage of what this great city has to offer, not to mention having a chance to refresh your self for the trip home. Please make accommodation arrangements as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. We suggest the hotels listed below, as they all have complimentary shuttle service to both Vancouver Airports, The Seair Seaplane terminal and freezer storage for fish on your return.
