Before You Go


We’ll take good care of you at the lodge, but there are a few steps you’ll need to take before you get here.

Following are some things to keep in mind as your trip date approaches.

For more detailed information, please refer to the Trip Itinerary you received with your trip confirmation, or contact our office if you have any questions.

Covid-related Requirements

~ as of May 1, 2022

Proof of vaccination is currently required for air travel in Canada. This requirement affects Langara’s charter flights from YVR to Haida Gwaii, and our helicopter flights to the lodge.  The wearing of masks is also currently required for air travel in Canada.

Although many Covid-related measures have recently been relaxed here in B.C., we currently expect these requirements to remain in effect through the summer.

If these requirements would prevent you or anyone in your group from joining us this season, please notify us as soon as possible.

As per provincial requirements, the wearing of masks is currently not required in and around the Lodge.

Know Your Flight Times

Departing from the YVR South Terminal on first day of trip:

  • Check-in: 6:30 a.m.
  • Departure: 7:30 a.m.

Guests can anticipate returning to Vancouver by approximately 2:30 p.m. on final day of trip.

Delays due to weather can occur; to ensure a successful transfer home, we recommend booking return flights at least 3-4 hours after our anticipated return time, or the following day.

Buy your Fishing Licence

A Canadian Tidal Water Sport Fishing Licence is required for every guest.

Guests should purchase their licence online, and print it out, prior to joining us. A physical copy of your licence must be in your possession when out on the water.

When purchasing your licence, please note…

  • Licence type must be Pacific Region, 5-Day or Annual, and include the Pacific Salmon Stamp.
  • For a 5-Day licence, ensure start date matches first day of your trip.
  • Licences for juveniles (under 16) are required — these are free except for the cost of the Salmon Stamp.
  • The 2022 licence is 2-pages. Both pages must be printed and in your possession when fishing.
  • If able, save a copy of your licence as a PDF file to your mobile device, to reprint at the lodge if necessary.

Some licences can be provided at check-in if you are unable to purchase online, or do not have access to a printer. Contact us if you have any difficulties purchasing your licence.
