"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

A Brief History

Ole's was established in 1982 by Irv and JoAnn Olsen. The Olsen family had been logging on the coast since the 50's and were familiar with Hakai Pass for it's fantastic fishing. They knew of a sheltered bay close to the fishing grounds with a freshwater supply and this was the ideal location which they chose to set up their fishing Lodge.

Irv and JoAnn and the Olsen family operated the lodge for many years and built up a very loyal and keen following based on their genuine hospitality and the caring approach they took to looking after their guests. In 1996 after their family had grown and moved on to their own careers, Irv and JoAnn wanted to spend more of their summers in town. Ernie Daley joined Ole' s that summer as General Manager and his staff have continued the tradition of customer service excellence in a world class location to this day.

This cheerful, energetic, hardworking crew has become the cornerstone of Ole's success. The Olsen family is still a very involved partner in the ongoing success of operations.
