Meet our Staff
Our staff makes you feel at home
Naturally, we are proud of all the great things at Hakai Lodge – the consistent fishing, the beautiful scenery, the mild weather, the comfortable accommodations – but the highlight of the whole experience is our STAFF who keep everything clean and operating properly. When our guests aren’t enjoying the great fishing, they’re commenting on our outstanding staff.
Our staff includes our lodge manager, fish master, fishing guides, chef and baker , friendly waitresses, maids and the dock staff. They are courteous, friendly, and fun. Several have been with the Lodge for over 20 years.
Holli Smith is our lodge manager and has been a fixture of Hakai Lodge for over 30 years. She started out as a maid and has been the chef and baker. Her family has been of the family feel of the Lodge with her son’s and daughter all working at the Lodge over the years. Holli always has a smile on her face and makes our beloved guests feel at home and well taken care of.
Our fish master has an extensive background of fishing BC’s Central Coast and our area specifically in beautiful Hakai Pass. He has a knack for locating the fish and directing guests to the best fishing spots daily. Our guiding staff will put you on the fish for those that choose to have a guide.
The Hakai Staff has an extended-family feel that will welcome you to the Lodge. They are as friendly and sociable as they are dedicated to the Lodge, and our guests love them. They are some of the best and most loyal employees we could have asked for.
