Rates from $1,295 per night – Two night minimum*
Available only during summer months

Two night stay minimum; package price based on double occupancy for a midweek stay defined as nights Sunday through Thursday, with first night spent at Cowichan River Lodge and second night spent in a Deluxe Room at Villa Eyrie Resort.

Our special two-night, double-occupancy package combines a discounted stay at Villa Eyrie with one at the Cowichan River Lodge and gourmet dining throughout as well as an exclusive seafaring voyage along the West Coast of the island that departs from Port Renfrew.

Due to the extremely high demand for ocean charters during the summer months as well as the limited availability of guestrooms at the Lodge, 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. Our guest services team will work with you to help make all the necessary arrangements as well as offer alternatives in case no charters or Cowichan River Lodge rooms are available.

Full itinerary from $1,295 per night includes:

  • First night spent at Cowichan River Lodge with a catered two-course dinner[3] for two
  • Very early start with a continental breakfast[3] for two provided by Lodge staff followed by a scenic drive through to Port Renfrew
  • Wild Pacific fishing excursion[2] for two guests from our partner Cowichan River Lodge
  • Boxed lunch from our catering menu for your voyage along with beverages and snacks for the road from our pastry team
  • Second night spent back at Villa Eyrie in a Deluxe Room with dinner[1] for two at Alpina Restaurant that includes your choice of appetizer, main and dessert
  • Sumptuous breakfast for two at Alpina Restaurant the following morning
  • (Shuttle service to and from Villa Eyrie, Cowichan River Lodge or charter boat also available at an additional cost)

What to expect on your Wild Pacific[2] fishing charter:

A truly prolific experience, this guided charter starts before sunrise (around 4am) with a spectacular drive from Cowichan River Lodge through the mountains to the bucolic Port Renfrew straddling the untamed West Coast of Vancouver Island. From there, steady yourself for a full-day trek through the turbulent waters of the Juan de Fuca Strait and the infamous Swiftsure Bank.

The fishing in this part of the Pacific is nothing but world-class, with record-breaking halibut and salmon of all types being caught in large amounts, in addition to cod and Dungeness crabs. You may even see a few Orca whales, sea otters or sea lions along the way.

Please also note that the above package price is per fishing charter based on two anglers and includes 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.

Cowichan River Lodge

Tucked away along the serene Cowichan River with tall forests in every direction, this chalet-style lodging is the perfect setting to unwind before your ocean fishing trip. Befitting a true bed and breakfast establishment, the Lodge features a grand living room with only four guestrooms for a maximum of eight guests.

With a limited kitchen, the dinner for two is provided via a catering menu from the executive chef at the nearby Vancouver Island Motorsport Circuit, while the continental breakfast is prepared onsite. Also be advised that alcoholic beverages are not available for purchase at the Lodge and must be acquired separately by the guest.

Additional Nights

With other fishing excursions such as our fishing off the waters around the Gulf Islands, we’d love for you to spend multiple days at Villa Eyrie Resort getting the most out of your ocean fishing experience.

Each additional night at the Resort will include a great deal on breakfast and a three-course dinner for two as well as all accommodations. Depending on where you want to fish, we will gladly customize this multi-day package to include another night at Cowichan River Lodge to thereby limit the amount of driving in the morning before another Wild Pacific fishing excursion. Additionally, if you are traveling with other guests who also wish to partake in a fishing experience, let us know so we can bundle any charter reservations.

Shuttle service to any destination and back to Villa Eyrie Resort can be provided at an additional cost. Please contact us to arrange any customized package on your behalf.
