  • Description

    Description

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

    We are looking for two adventurous and reliable people to join us in paradise starting mid July until mid September. There are various jobs to be done around the lodge such as grounds keeping, and general maintenance as well as guest services, housekeeping, help in the kitchen and more !

    You would work 5 hours in exchange for your accommodation and food, with transport to and from the lodge. We also offer a wage.

    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, humpbacks, killer whales and dolphins.
    We have a small general store with a post office and liquor store nearby.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Stuart Island has a magic of its own that keeps many people coming back year after year. Workawayers will love experiencing the wild west coast when they stay with us. Eagles gather by the hundreds when they feed across the bay. Humpbacks, orcas and dolphins are never far away and have already come into the bay this year. We are immersed in a natural and wild environment that is unforgettable.
    We love showing people the area and will do our best to get you out on the water to show you the area - we believe in working hard, playing hard, chilling out and eating well ! Our puppy will love playing with you and showing you his toys.

    Accommodation

    We provide individual rooms in a separate staff building. The upstairs room has 2-3 beds and one shared bathroom. Fishing guides occasionally stay downstairs and have their own bathroom.
    We use a generator for power so we have electricity during the day and none at night when we shut it off. We do have wi-fi.

  • 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.
