Our Partners

At Eagle Nook Resort we have many partners that make your stay and experience with us one of the best in the world. From fishing gear, rods and reels, seaplane flights, and outboard motors, to kayaks, paddleboards and maintenance equipment, all of our resort operations depend on our partners.

We deal with them because they are the best in the business, and we would like acknowledge them on this page so that our guests know who we depend on, and  know they can depend on them too.

Seair Seaplanes Logo

Seair Seaplanes was founded by Peter Clarke, a pilot who grew up in BC, dreaming from a young age about flying seaplanes on the west coast.

Peter financed flying lessons and the purchase of his first seaplane by working as a fishing guide. In 1980 he acquired his first plane, a Cessna 185, his business started with flying charters to lodges and backcountry fishing spots along with other charters for the Canadian Navy, lumber companies and commercial fisheries.


We fly there!

So very true, Pacific Seaplanes flies there but more importantly, they fly to Eagle Nook. Pacific Seaplanes flies our scheduled Vancouver BC to Eagle Nook route every Thursday and Sunday. They bring our guests in and out for their fishing and adventure packages.

Our guests land at our dock wowed by the spectacular flight and unforgettable first look at the Resort – many say they’ll never arrive at our dock in any other way!

Randy and Brenda work as hard as we do at making the flights a big part of our guests’ adventures.


Right Angle Fishing Products

Our good friend Chris has a passion for fishing and fishing gear. His products are made here on Vancouver Island and are designed to catch salmon and halibut  like nothing else. Another great local family business based right here in British Columbia.


Trotac Marine  supplies us with a fantastic selection of fish gear from rods and reels, to tackle  and electronics.

Part of their story:

In 1972, the founder, Pete Thomson, after working for a few decades in similar industries, made the decision to strike out on his own and opened Trotac. This was truly begun as a family business as all three of Pete’s children contributed to the company from the simplest form by packaging (earning half a penny per bag!) to working in the store, as well as Pete’s wife doing the bookkeeping. In the early 80’s, Trotac expanded its building and staff as well as its customer base from the commercial fishing fleet to supplying:

  • Workboats (tow, inshore freighter, pilot boats)
  • Scientific research vessels and projects (Neptune, Venus and many other projects around the world)
  • Shipyards for ship construction and maintenance products
  • Search and Rescue (Canadian Coast Guard, Auxiliary Coast Guard, Canadian Navy)
  • Pleasure marine (sport fishing, sailing, motor boating and live a-boards)


The Way to Fish

We depend on our downriggers and Scotty gear to perform and get our guests into fish. Our guides have been using Scotty downriggers since they were kids. This is one the best run family businesses on Vancouver Island if not in Canada.

The  Scotty Story

In 1952 Blayney and his wife Almeda Scott started a small company in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada that pioneered the use of plastics in the manufacturing of salmon fishing lures and other marine products.

From humble beginnings, Scott Plastics Ltd. has evolved to produce thousands of products under the Scotty Trademark which are sold into the fishing, marine, outdoor and firefighting industries worldwide.

In this time the Scotty trademark has become recognized to mean one thing – product excellence.

The total commitment to quality, fair pricing and unmatched service means our customers everywhere can expect reliability and satisfaction from every product that carries the Scotty name.
