Rates from $845 per night – Two night minimum*

The calmer ocean waters around the southern zone of Vancouver Island and the Salish Sea act as the migratory routes for salmon, cod and halibut, while the inlets teem with crabs and prawns. This is a fishing experience suitable for everyone from novices to experts, as well as those who are simply in search of inspirational views of the Gulf Islands in every direction.

Our two-night, double-occupancy package includes a base discount on accommodations and all dining for two guests, along with a seafaring voyage offered through our partnership with Cowichan River Lodge (departs from Mill Bay just footsteps from Villa Eyrie).

Due to the extremely high demand for ocean charters during the summer months, we ask that you book this package well in advance of your desired fishing trip so that we can connect you with the best possible boat and crew. Once reserved, our guest services team will contact you to help make all the necessary arrangements as well as offer alternatives in case no charters are available.

Full package from $845 per night includes:

  • Two nights’ accommodations in a Deluxe View Room
  • Dinner[1] for two each night at Alpina Restaurant, including your choice of appetizer, main and dessert, all specially prepared by our Michelin-trained executive chef and culinary team.
  • Breakfast[1] for two each morning at Alpina Restaurant
  • Boxed lunch from our catering menu for your ocean fishing excursion along with beverages and snacks for the road from our pastry team
  • Gulf Islands fishing excursion[2] for two guests from our partner Cowichan River Lodge
  • (Shuttle service to and from Villa Eyrie also available at an additional cost)

What to expect on your Gulf Islands[2] fishing charter:

Departing from Mill Bay less than ten minutes from the Resort, the more placid waters surrounding the Southern Gulf Islands offer excellent opportunities for catching halibut, ling cod, rockfish and all types of salmon migrating their way back to their fall spawning grounds. Your captain may even drop a few traps over the side to scoop up some crabs or prawns!

Please note that the above package price is for one boat, two anglers and all per diem fishing licenses. Each charter can host a maximum of four anglers so let us know if you are traveling with other guests who wish to share the same boat. As well, due to the limited availability of charters from Mill Bay, one may need to be deadheaded from another port for your excursion at an additional per-hour roundtrip cost.

Each Additional Night at $1,245

With dozens of different routes through the Salish Sea that can be taken, we’d love for you to spend multiple days getting the most of your ocean fishing experience.

With each additional night that you stay, you will be treated to:

  • Breakfast[1] for two each morning at Alpina Restaurant
  • Another fishing excursion through the Gulf Islands from our partner Cowichan River Lodge

  • A three-course dinner at the Resort
