Dear Westcoast Resorts Guests:
HIPPA 2019 SEASON CANCELLATION
As many of you are aware, we suffered a major incident with the Hippa Lodge this fall whereby the lodge came loose off of an anchor buoy on Haida Gwaii while in transit to Vancouver for the winter.
The barge drifted onto a rocky beach and several hull breaches occurred which required extensive works and coordination with Haida, Provincial and Federal Agencies to ensure the situation was handled correctly. There was also a fuel tank breach caused by the pounding of the hull on the large boulders on the beach. Luckily, after extensive work to dislodge the barge, there was no fuel spilled into the environment. Read More
Westcoast Resorts has proudly received Silver Green Tourism Certification again this August (2018). Achieving this high level of tourism certification was as a result of the commitment to Haida and local employment, locally sourced foods and beverages, cultural tours, preservation of the environment and implementing recycling and energy saving strategies.

Hard to believe, but we’re actually in the midst of our last trip of the season here at Englefield…
Well, here we are at the end of August… where has the season gone? Luckily, we have a couple more trips to get everyone’s final fishin’ fix in before we leave Englefield for 2018 and begin preparations for 2019!
What a great week here at the lodge! This may have been the driest summer I have ever seen up here on the west coast of Haida Gwaii.
