Can An All Inclusive Fishing Lodge Be a Family-Friendly Destination?

From the multi-course meals to the challenge of reeling in a King salmon, a visit to an all inclusive fishing resort might not sound like the most kid-friendly or family-friendly vacation.

But this isn’t the case!

Sointula Lodge welcomes families, including children of all ages. Keep reading to learn more about planning a family trip to an all inclusive fishing resort, and a few reasons why this incredible trip should be on your family’s bucket list.

How Old Do Children Need to Be to Visit an All Inclusive Fishing Lodge?

At Sointula Lodge, we welcome children of all ages. While younger kids may not be able to cast their own line or be up to spending long days on the water, our customizable Wilderness Tour packages offer more flexibility. 

Every member of your travel party, including children, will need to book a spot during your visit. However, discounted rates are available for children ages 12 and younger. Contact us to learn more about our rates and discounts for younger children.

Customize Your Family’s Visit With Our Wilderness Tour Packages

If you know that your children won’t enjoy spending every day of your trip fishing, our Wilderness Tour packages are a great alternative. With help from your experienced guide, you and your family can customize each day of your visit to suit you and your family’s abilities and interests.

Go out on the boat — complete with an enclosed, heated cabin to help you stay warm and comfortable — in search of wildlife, including orcas, sea lions, otters, bears, and more. Take a hike and swim beneath a stunning waterfall. You can even plan some time for fishing during your visit. This is a great opportunity to introduce your children to fishing or to continue to inspire a lifelong interest in this rewarding sport.

For families with younger children, our customizable Wilderness Tours also allow you to work around nap schedules. This can help take away some of the stress and meltdowns that could come with booking strict tour packages with other all inclusive fishing resorts.

Just like with our Ocean Fishing and Fly Fishing packages, our Wilderness Tour packages are available in both 4-day and 5-day trips. Like our other tours, you’ll still get to experience the unique amenities and delicious food that Sointula Lodge is known for. Get a visit from our almost-famous Burger Boat, enjoy a Beach Bistro picnic lunch, and spend your evenings enjoying our remote property, relaxing in the hot tub, or sitting around a campfire.

Creating Lifelong Memories With Your Family

If you are a family that tends to take the same kinds of vacations time and time again, a visit to the best fishing resort BC has to offer is a great way to break the mold, and take your family on a trip that they’ll never forget.

A visit to an all inclusive fishing resort is packed with opportunities for trying new things. This could be your child’s first time fishing, or their first time reeling in a big fish. Picky eaters might be inspired to try something new while dining on a beach during our Beach Bistro lunch. After a long day of fun, you and your family might find yourself laughing like never before as you reflect while watching the sun do down on the dock or relaxing in the hot tub. 

And the pictures you get of your little ones holding their first fish or standing in front of one of British Columbia’s endless, incredible landscapes will no doubt be one that you’ll treasure for years to come.

Take Away Some of the Usual Hassles of a Family Vacation

Another thing that makes an all inclusive fishing lodge visit a great choice for families is that it allows you to avoid many of the hassles that come with other family trips. No worrying about choosing where to dine each night, or about long hours in the car each day getting from one activity to another. Instead, parents can spend more time relaxing and enjoying one-on-one time with their kids, while our staff takes care of the rest!

Have little ones that need a nap? You can hop off the boat after a morning of exploring and walk straight to your private room for an afternoon break. When you get up in the morning, a hot, nutritious breakfast is ready and waiting for you to fuel up your kids for a day of fun. 

And after a long day of exploring, you can head straight to a campfire or even to bed while we take care of everything from cleaning up dinner to prepping your fresh-caught fish for transport to your home!
