5+ stars across the boards for Dolphins North! My second time here, and I leave dazzled, again. Great fishing. Gorgeous setting. Expert guides who are fun, personable, and amazingly skilled. Delicious food. And a routine that’s all about the fishing. Plus, this year, wildlife sightings included wolves, grizzlies, orcas, and bubble-netting humpback whales. Grand Maestro Greg oversees the entire operation and its activities with an eagle eye and an abundance of humor, generosity, and hospitality. When he joins the guests at the table at each meal, there’s never a shortage of delightful stories--and tall tales that could be true!

Yes, I reviewed the lodge before. Yes, I raved about it then. Yes, I returned this year. And, yes, it just gets better. Our group of twelve fished like we all were halibut and salmon whisperers - thanks to the superb team of guides. We dined like gourmet gourmands. We reveled in the magnificent, breathtaking beauty of the northern British Columbia coastline. Each evening we all would recharge at the large barge lodge (sorry about that...). Greg, the issumatak or lodge chief, has that rare combination of expertise, charisma, and customer service that will assure each guest/fisherman feels important and valued. For every level of fishing expertise, Dolphins North delivers in a way that both creates indelible memories and also supplies such superb fish that you are guaranteed a spot in the cook-out hall of fame.

Yes, it's 5-star for the fantastic Pacific fishing, exciting for pros and newbies. Yes, it's 5-star for brilliantly presented and delicious food. Yes, it's 5-star for the facilities. Yes, it's 5-star for the land, sea and air wildlife as well as breathtaking scenery and magnificent vistas. What makes DN a cut above is the staff - warm and personal, funny and wise, attentive and respectful, talented and capable, hard-working and prepared. What an incredible group of lodge staff and fishing guides, led by Greg, the grand maestro. While I am arguably the least knowledgeable and doofiest fisherman in North America, the team somehow talked those fish into biting my bait and hopping into our boat. How do they do It? Seriously, for a fishing trip the inches toward a spiritual experience, Dolphins North is the place to land..... pun intended, Greg! Thanks for the memories.

What a blast we just had at Dolphins. Great place, great people, great food and wine, only surpassed by tremendous fishing. Every serious fisher person should make this pilgrimage.Thanks again to all and DN for making it a most memorable time.

5 Stars!! Took a group of for a business trip and everything was perfect. The food was amazing (we all gained like 15 pounds). The guides kept us going all week long. Can't say a single bad thing about this place.
