August 4 - 9, 2012, $4,095/person
($4,495 Less $400 Discount, Net $4,095) + fees, tax & personal expenses
Final Call! Trip coordinator, Ron Simons has announced that this summer’s 2012 salmon/halibut fishing trip to the magnificent Queen Charlotte Islands in British Columbia will be the final year to experience this unbelievable fishing experience
Guests will be flown to West Coast Resorts’ Englefield Bay Lodge which is located on the Pacific side of the Queen Charlotte Islands — 600 miles north of Vancouver, B.C. This first class West Coast Resorts lodge accommodates 44 guests and is totally self-contained on large barges that are anchored to the shoreline at the head of a protected inlet cove. This location offers the finest in salmon, halibut and other bottom fishing, and is exclusive to the lodge guests.
The trip includes 3 full days of fishing - Sunday afternoon through Wednesday morning (August 5 - 8, 2012). Since the days are very long this time of the year in northern B.C., one can fish up to 10-12 hours per day.
Participants should plan to arrive in Vancouver the evening before (Saturday, August 4th) at the designated hotel near the airport in time for an orientation dinner and to receive any last minute trip details. Early Sunday morning you will be shuttled from your hotel over to the south terminal and flown by chartered 737 aircraft to the Queen Charlotte Islands, followed by a 15 minute helijet flight directly on to the landing dock at the lodge. You will be fishing and catching salmon or halibut by early afternoon.
During their stay at the lodge, guests are provided with the finest in fishing gear and tackle. Boats are custom designed for this venture and are limited to two or three guests plus the fishing guide. All the fish caught are thoroughly cleaned, sized, coded with the guests personal ID, vacuum wrapped and immediately placed into a deep freeze. On departure the frozen fish are placed in insulated containers and shipped home with the guests. Should anyone care to stay over a day or two in Vancouver on their return from fishing, the hotel as a courtesy will gladly hold his/her fish in its freezer until guest departure from Vancouver. Guests also have the opportunity to trade out a portion of their catch for smoked or canned salmon which will be shipped to them at a later date.
Due to the long-term relationship this Cal Poly Pomona Alumni & Friends program has enjoyed with West Coast Resorts, the lodge management is offering a special $500 discount off the cost of next summer’s trip. $4,495 less $400 CPP discount = $4,095. There is also an additional discount for a very limited number of 3-party accommodations.
Because of the extreme popularity of this particular lodge location and the dates selected, this trip is very limited in the number of spaces allocated. Therefore all reservations must be accompanied by a nonrefundable $1,500 deposit per angler. Payments may be made by credit card or checks payable to West Coast Resorts. The remaining balance plus taxes and any upgrades for full-time fishing guides will be due on or before April 30, 2012.
The discounted package price of $4,095 includes:
