A visit to Sointula Lodge is already a unique and special experience. But if you want to take your trip to the next level, we have a few options for you. Keep reading to learn 5 ways that you can customize your visit to Sointula Lodge.
1. Opt for a Wilderness Tour
At Sointula Lodge, we’re best known for our luxury fishing excursions. But while casting a line in pursuit of a king salmon in the cool waters of British Columbia is a great way to spend your vacation, it isn’t your only option.
For those who don’t want to fish, have an interest in wildlife, or are just looking for a unique experience, we also offer luxury Wilderness Tours. You’ll enjoy many of the same features of our classic Fishing Excursion, including delicious meals, a Beach Bistro picnic, and relaxing evenings at the lodge or exploring the island.
But rather than taking to the water with fishing gear each day, you’ll go equipped with binoculars and your camera, in search of orcas, sea lions, and even bears, wolves, and more along the shorelines. You’ll explore some of the hundreds of islands located in the area, taking in the region’s unique natural beauty.
2. Book a Private Boat
If you want to make an already special trip a bit more so, opt for a private boat experience. For an additional fee, you can guarantee that you and your partner have a fishing boat all to yourselves for the length of your trip. Not only does this make your experience a bit more intimate, it also ensures that you’ll have more personal time with your guide. This is a great choice for those hoping to improve and expand their fishing skills.
While we do our best to not mix groups during our regular fishing excursions, booking a private boat ensures that your group of two isn’t paired with another couple for your daily excursions. Booking a private boat for two people for the duration of your trip will cost an additional $750 per person.
Studies show that spending quality time with your spouse or partner is key to improving your communication, keeping your passion alive, and de-stressing. Going out of the water together, along with your guide, of course, is a great way to make your visit a special bonding time for the two of you.
3. Split Your Trip to Accommodate Your Group
Do you love to fish, but your partner is less enthusiastic about spending several days casting a line? Don’t rethink your trip. Instead, customize it.
When you book our Wilderness Tour, your trip is fully customizable. This means that you can go fishing in the morning, then head out to explore the inlets in search of wildlife in the afternoons. This ensures that everyone in your group gets to do what they enjoy during your trip.
4. Hit the High Seas
Another great way to customize your trip is with a special enhancement. For just $500 per boat, you can book our High Seas package. With this add-on, you’ll get to hit the high seas for a day of fishing in open water.
You’ll spend the day fishing in the ocean off the northern tip of Vancouver Island. You’ll also get to enjoy a special boat ride there and back, giving you a chance to see even more of the area by water. If you’ve ever dreamed of deep water fishing, this is a great way to experience it with the help of an experienced guide.
5. Book the Entire Lodge
With COVID regulations lifting and vaccines making it possible for families to travel again, you might be thinking about finally booking that family reunion that you’ve been putting off for over a year. Or, maybe you’re thinking about rewarding your employees with a special corporate retreat after dealing with the fallout and challenges of 2020. If you think that Sointula Lodge is off the list of destinations, think again.
We offer the option to book out our entire lodge for groups looking to create an extra special atmosphere for their troop. In addition to booking the lodge, you’ll be able to customize your experience to fit the wants and needs of every member of your group.
