Come For the Fishing. Stay For the Incredible Life Experiences!

More than just fishing. Rugged Point Lodge offers incredible life experiences – the ultimate romantic getaway or vacation

You may think that Rugged Point Lodge on breathtaking Kyuquot Sound is all about the fishing… it sure is. But, it can also be the ideal spot for an incredible romantic getaway or vacation with friends and family vacation!

Of course, the fishing is nothing short of world-class. Remote and largely untouched, these Northwest Coast of Vancouver Island waters offer the best in sport fishing.
Beautifully situated on Kyuquot Sound, on the edge of the continental shelf, some of the most productive fishing grounds anywhere lie only a couple of miles from our dock.

Here, in what is referred to as the Salmon Super Highway, massive schools of migrating Chinook Salmon, Halibut, Lingcod, and Sea Bass, offer a veritable guarantee of making the catch of a lifetime.

An ultimate life experience – the vacation of a lifetime!

Despite being a world-class fishing lodge, there’s more to Rugged Point Lodge than just the extraordinary fishing. We host people from all over the world in search of a retreat from their day-to-day. Individuals, couples, and families come looking for an ideal place where they can enjoy peaceful quality time amidst the natural tranquillity of Canada’s west coast.
