  • Description


    Hi !

    We are a small, family-owned fishing lodge on beautiful Stuart Island, BC, Canada.

    We offer salmon fishing tours May- September and need some help opening the lodge pre-season.

    We're looking for responsible and reliable people starting at the end of March. There is a lot of work to be done, both inside the lodge and on the grounds. You would work 4 hours a day in exchange for accommodation, food, wifi, and free transportation to and from Campbell River.

    Stuart Island is remote, rugged, and pristine. There will be plenty of time to explore the island and enjoy all it has to offer. There is a small lake and hiking trails through the forests. We are surrounded by wildlife such as eagles, seals, sea lions, killer whales and dolphins.
    We have a small general store with a post office and liquor store nearby.

    Come and join us in paradise !

  • Accommodation


    We provide individual rooms in a separate staff building with a shared bathroom and living area for staff and work-awayers. We use a generator for power so we have electricity during the day and none at night when we shut it off.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Our lodge is right on the ocean, surrounded by a network of other smaller islands. We are boat or plane access only. At the moment we are looking for pre-season help with outside projects, cleaning, cooking and maintenance.

    Dress warmly ! Bring clothes for all types of weather, the cold, the rain and the sun !

    This is a great place for people who love the outdoors, and enjoy being in rugged and remote areas. The island is pretty quiet this time of year, so being able to have your own adventures and entertain yourself is a must ! If possible we do take people out fishing, prawning or crabbing, so you will be able to experience some of what the coast has to offer.
