King Pacific Lodge is the ultimate luxury/ adventure/ ecotourism vacation spot. It is located in the heart of the Great Bear Rainforest on the west coast of British Columbia. This rainforest includes 21 million acres of the world's largest expanse of intact temperate rainforest.  The Lodge is anchored along the shore of Barnard Harbor, Princess Royal Island in British Columbia, Canada; that’s about 380 miles north of Vancouver. The island has no permanent inhabitants or structures   King Pacific emphasizes a deep respect for the land, and its people.


King Pacific is a floating luxury wilderness lodge built of native woods and stone on a 7200 square foot barge, holding 17 guest rooms and suites, all of which feature en-suite bathrooms with deep Osaka tubs and showers, and the ultimate in luxurious linens, towels and robes.  You’ll enjoy the wrap-around deck with spectacular views, a spa, Jacuzzi, and plunge pool. In addition to your own private quarters and large deck, there is a Great Room just right for visiting and relaxing, it features a cathedral ceiling, ocean views, comfortable leather seating, and a large double-sided open fireplace. The Game Room offers you: shuffleboard, a card table, darts and a fly-tying table. This room can be converted to an executive boardroom or small meeting room with capacity of 34 people. And while at the Lodge you will experience sumptuous dining. The lodge's culinary offerings include seasonal local and regional organic produce, fresh seafood and meats, together with award-winning wines. The dining room boasts ocean views on two sides, a large open fireplace.  


Saltwater trolling and fly-fishing are offered, as well as remote freshwater heli-fly-fishing. Chinook and Coho salmon, halibut and ling cod are abundant in the Pacific Ocean waters of Northern British Columbia. June and July are an excellent time for Chinook salmon fishing and August brings the peak of the Coho salmon run. Coho are abundant near the lodge, and the action can be fast and furious. These fish are known for their explosive fighting and leaping abilities. The surrounding waters also contain prolific halibut and ling cod. These fish are caught throughout the entire season and are valued for their excellent taste. For an amazing guided fly- fishing trip at King Pacific Lodge take a helicopter. The trout fly-fishing season runs from spring until the end of July. Guided fly fishing trips to this delicate fishery of native Rainbow and Cutthroat trout take place in small to medium connector streams between lakes. The abundance of trout and their aggressive nature make this the perfect place to wade in and cast your fly.    River fishing for salmon is done in mid- July. This time marks the beginning of the river salmon season, which runs until September. The rivers provide excellent fly-fishing for a variety of Pacific salmon species such as Pink and Coho and occasionally Chum. The large numbers of Pink salmon mean they are the most suitable even for beginners who can expect to catch anywhere from 10 to over 50 fish on their first day. The Coho salmon offers a much greater challenge and makes for the fly-fishing trip of a lifetime. These fish reach sizes of up to 20 lbs. and become ‘torpedo-like’ once hooked. Coho salmon fishing requires much longer casts and careful presentations, and there is no assurance you will land it.

Getting There

You will fly into Vancouver; from there, you will be flown by private charter to Bella Bella where you board a floatplane for a scenic transfer to the lodge's front door (approximately 2.5 hours from Vancouver).


Teeming with orcas, humpback whales, black bears, grizzlies, cream Kermode or 'Spirit Bears' (a black bear -rarer than the panda), seals, sea lions, sea otters and eagles, this is a perfect area to indulge in nature watching and photography. Guides offer hikes, sea kayaking, beach combing, heli-hiking, whale watching, wildlife viewing, star gazing, floatplane tours, fly-tying instruction and cultural tours with the indigenous Gitga'at.
