The Guides, Staff, Food and Accommodation at Eagle Nook Resort are nothing short of amazing. We had a rather large group, and everyone received top notch service from the moment we arrived until the moment we left. The guides were all so knowledgeable and made it so even the least experienced fishermen/women had a awesome time out on the water. Fantastic experience, I would recommend to anyone.

This is a true hidden gem. Over the past 15 years, our crew has fished at a lot of resorts from Haida through to Vancouver island. Dan and his team hosted us on an experience we will not forget. His staff is welcoming and professional, the food is 5 star, the guides are very experienced, work as a team and his entire crew was committed to providing us with an all inclusive trip you do not find often. Thank you Eagle Nook Resort, we will be making this a yearly trip and bringing more staff to share our experience.

Eagle Nook is the best resort I have stayed at in Barkley sound. Sam and the entire team are just incredible. In fact I would rate them in the same class as many of the northern BC lodges. How they treat each and every guest is fantastic. Whether you bring your own boat like I do or charter you are treated no different. I would highly recommend them to anyone. See you again soon.

Great operation with skilled guides and staff. The lodge is located on a beautiful island and close to a lot of the prime fishing spots. For those seeking a memorable fishing experience, look no further

Eagle Nook was my first ocean fishing experience, and I couldn't have been more pleased. I went in without having or knowing what to expect, and in the end, my stay there exceeded any expectation I could've had. The staff were friendly and accommodating, the fishing guides were in a word - fantastic, and the location, lodge and food - simply excellent. I highly recommend this resort.

Beautiful resort! Every room is a ocean front view. The fishing guides are highly knowledgeable about the best areas to fish, we limited out everyday of our trip on all our fish! Food was AMAZING! Resort staff and guides make you feel like family. Definitely recommend.

Yes Chef! Set on the isthmus between Jane and Vernon Bay, the Nook showers you with only the finest of provisions. Look no further if you seek luxury amongst the rainforest, a lesson in hospitality from master Muehlebach or lifelong friendship.

Sent staff for an appreciation trip for a job well done, and we were all impressed! The staff and facility were beyond expectations. The food was amazing, the staff super friendly. Samantha was very accommodating with all questions, getting back to us quickly and guiding us throughout the whole ordeal. We WILL be back! Do not hesitate to book a trip here!

Gorgeous location with friendly eager staff, cooks that go out of their way to satisfy, experienced fishing guides and several other activities like kayaking, disc golf, horse shoes and a driving range to keep you entertained. Awesome vacation destination for any fisherman or outdoorsy type!

Went to eagle nook resort on a company retreat and i am by no means a fisherman and terrible on boats. The staff made me feel welcome and comfortable with an activity i had never done. Jeff (our guide) never made me feel trapped on the boat when i was sick and always took care of my well being above all and made me want to come back on the boat the next day. its safe to say by day 3 they made somewhat of a fisherman out of me. good food, comfortable beds and staff that made you feel like family, what more could you ask for.

Incredible service from check in to check out. Lovely rooms, very comfortable and cozy. Food was delicious and wonderfully presented. Samantha was wonderful to deal with, always cheerful. When Ray and Arnold came back from a day of fishing a wonderful guy was right there to offer to clean the fish and prepare it for vacuum sealing and freezing! Arnold, an 88 yr old seasoned fisherman was very impressed. In fact, he is going back next month! Ray hopes to return next year. Super trip for father and son. They even have a favorite wine now, thanks to their server. Hillside Merlot.

Eagle Nook Resort is simply a magical place.From the ease of check in, the setting, to the organization of our days, it was all first class.All the staff were extremely personable, and went out of their way to ensure all our needs were met.Guide Dan used his experience and expertise to find fish and ensure that we had an epic day on the water.Chef Jimmy and his team thoughtfully prepared tasty creations every night, and even went out of their way to prepare a last minute coconut birthday cake that met our specific dietary needs.We truly appreciated the passion of all the staff and thank you for creating such great memories for us.We will see you all again next year!!

I've been fishing on the Island for a few years now. Eagle nook is top notch. From them making space last minute to Moore your boat to the amazing dinner packages they offer you can't go wrong. Everyday ice was ready on the dock, the boat was fueled and the lunches were ready to go. Do yourself a favour and stay here. We recently stayed in the rooms for a few nights and the beds are super comfy and the hot water is hot !. Trevor, Jeff, Dan and Matt are the guides to book if your looking to get on the fish. The stay is a bit pricey but you really get what you pay for. All around great experiences and we will be back.

Best fishing lodge around hands down.

First of all... Trevor is an amazing, fun & experienced guide!! We can't say enough... Fishing Barkley Sound for halibut & salmon was awesome and bringing home all our catch freezer ready is the best!! The meals are top notch as is this gem of a resort that is nestled away with amazing views from every angle. The accommodations are very nice and beds very comfy.The resort management and staff made us feel very safe with their covid measures in place. Great job on that! Vancouver Islanders get out there and enjoy staying and supporting local (close to home). Be catered to and enjoy an experience you will never forget! Thank you to all the staff for great personal service and the attention to details...

If you're looking for a first class experience with knowledgeable guides and the most top notch staff you can look no further. The resort itself is nestled practically in the middle of nowhere with the beautiful Pacific Northwest as the background. Aside from the amazing fishing there are perfect hiking trails, kayaks and paddle boards to use. I also hope you like to eat well because the kitchen will be sure to keep your belly happy. Thank you so much for the trip of a lifetime and we will most certainly be back!

This is a wilderness retreat second to none. Eagle Nook Resort is an experience from beginning to end. No access by road, so we took a float plane from Vancouver and delivered us to their dock. It is remote, tucked off the Pacific coast, and the mountains and water are absolutely gorgeous. We had 3 days of great fishing... we caught salmon, halibut, and tuna. You guys are great guides and hosts, thanks to Jeff, Trevor, Tim and the rest of you guys! And the food was exquisite. Hats off to this crew!

We are just about to head back to our favorite West Coast resort. The location, people, equipment and atmosphere are second to none. The fishing is outstanding and guides are extremely competent and knowledgeable. Highly recommend Eagle nook and lucky sportfishing for the trip of a lifetime🎣⚓️

Just left this beautiful property on a float plan after a four night stay with our 18 year old grandson for his high school graduation gift. My husband who has been fishing for 60 years all over the world says it’s the best fishing trip of his entire life ... he’s never caught so many fish in three days. In fact we caught our limit for our stay and LOVED every minute. The staff, food, luxury beds & linens, wine & cocktails are five star ~ our guide Jeff knew the best spots, managed the boat completely and was so generous with his knowledge & expertise ... we played the best tunes while catching, saw whales breaching, dolphins and bald eagles ... then chef Jimmy & Benny met us at the dock with mid-aft lunch like chowder one day, quesadillas & margaritas another, followed by outstanding four course dinner that eve. We so enjoyed dedicated manager Samantha along with staff Katie & Emily. Thank you, owners Dan and Jeff for creating this five star fishing resort. We are going back 2020.

The Lucky Sportfishing annual fishing derby is a blast. I brought my 23 year old son with me. He loved it, goit to hang out with some of the younger guys during the evenings but was up at the crack of dawn ready to fish. He ended up pulling in the derby winning salmon. Very proud of him and we enjoyed a fantastic father & son experience.

Eagle Nook is an unbelievable paradise tucked into a picturesque cranny of Barkley Sound. It never fails to reward a visit.

Our family have been coming at this little slice of heaven for two consecutive year now. Great fishing, awesome food, excellent hiking trails and wonderful staff.
17:56 26 Jul 16
This resort is definitely 5 Star. It is only open 3 months in the summer, so it makes it difficult for them to get their Trip Advisor ratings up. The food is top notch luxury resort quality with something for everyone. All of their guides are very experienced, they only hire the cream of the crop and all of fishing boats are top of the line Grady Whites.If you want a first class fishing experience, with all of the trimmings, go no further.
15:22 19 Jul 16
Absolutely a first class experience. The lodge, scenery, staff, fishing guides and the experience were phenomenal. I highly recommend it if you love to fish.

Dan and team - Sterling Crane held their 2015 Manager's retreat at Eagle Nook this year and it was a great success. We have been there before and have known Dan, Tim, Gary and a number of the staff and guides for many years but I think this year's trip was the best yet. The weather was very good to us, James the head chef did a fantastic job with all the food. The fishing was amazing and everyone caught lots of Salmon. The rooms are very comfortable. The lodge is spectacular with its front and rear ocean water views and all the staff were very friendly and helpful. All in all it couldn't have been better. I would recommend to anyone.
