Dear Captain Sam
I can’t get over the trip my son Richie and I had with you this past July 14th. From the time we arrived we were treated with the type of respect a professional courtesy above and beyond expectations.
Your boat is immaculate in shape and cleanliness, the equipment is top notch all the way around. Your boat skills are second to none.
The food at the lodge was perfect, breakfast, lunch and dinner, if anyone went away hungry it was their own fault and the rooms were spotless and the beds comfortable.
The staff were very friendly and helpful, when we came in late the chef was nice enough to make us a plate an keep it hot.
The area is amazing the wildlife, whales dolphins, sharks’ sunfish.
The way you processed the fish was also perfect, that’s a huge part of how the product will taste.
Both Richie and I cannot express the good time we had it will be talked about a shared with all, for a long time to come.
Thanks again for a memory of a lifetime a many more to come.
Your Friends from across the pond
Richie and Smokey Geschke

  Our group had a fantastic trip this past August out at Port Eliza. Great Boat - great lodge and captain Hicksy is a fantastic and knowledgeable guide. I liked it so much that we booked a day trip from Campbell. ! I would recommend him to anyone wanting a fantastic and memorable day on the water πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

We enjoyed a memorable four day excursion, with Captain Hicksy based out of Port Eliza Lodge. The captain had the best boat set up for four comfortably, with two fishing in a spacious dance floor. Even a bathroom in the cabin, which would be much appreciated by fisherwomen. The captain is very knowledgable of the waters in the area, and we limited on Coho and caught a good number of large chinook. He was the best filleter I observed, carefully deboning and salt water rinsing to maintain the quality of the flash frozen fillets. We unanimously recommend Captain Hicksy and his boat!

  Amazing trip with KingSlayer Charters up at Port Eliza! Sam answered all of my endless questions with grace and taught me a great deal about not only the sport of fishing but the beautiful environment we were in. Will be back next year after I run out of fish!

Was an absolutely awesome time!! Having fished from Bamfield to Esperanza for 20+ years I can honestly say that the most fish we’ve ever put on a boat on a 3 night tour. Took home 300 Lbs of Hali, Chinook and Coho. My wife wants to know when I’m going back again???!!! Lol

What an experience!! I had the chance of being on on a King Slayer Charter trip in Port Elisa and what an experience that was. Sam was an incredible guide, he took us to all of the best fishing spots where we caught some big fish. His boat is state of the art, made me feel really safe for my first time this far in the ocean. We are already booking our next trip with King Slayer Charters and I can't wait to get back on the boat with Sam to catch more big fish!!! You will not be disappointed!

Five Star experience! We signed up for a four day adventure with Sam in Esperanza Inlet this year. Spectacular remote setting with some of the best fishing we've ever experienced - Sam is completely dialed in on the area with daily intel. Very different experience from Haida Gwaii or Rivers Inlet. Plenty of action all day, especially 15 miles offshore on the highway. Chinook were plentiful with loads of action and halibut numbers were the best we've experienced. Thank you fishmaster! Can't wait for August 2021.

The owner is very knowledgeable and really taught us with such patience about fishing, it truly made our girls fishing trip memorable. I would highly recommend this company for a special occasion or if you are just simply looking to get out fishing for the day. The charter has everything, bring snacks/lunch as he has coolers on board already. You will not regret it!!

Unbelievable experience! Sam put us on the fish for all three days, we caught a ton of different species and had a great time! Sam is an awesome host and makes sure that everything ran really smoothly, great guy to hang out with!! πŸ‘ highly recommend this charter service to anyone looking to fish in BC

What a great experience with Kingslayer Charters. Sam has the knowledge and the gear to get the fish in the boat. We had a fantastic trip to Esperanza, Sam was very hospitable and worked extremely hard to make sure we were successful. We caught our limit of salmon and the freezer is full. Highly recommend Kingslayer!!

Chartered with Sam at Kingslayer Charter yesterday May 27, 2020. We did about 10 hours.The service and knowledge was incredible. Sam is a very friendly guide. He knew his stuff. He is a good teacher and allowed us to play all day. We caught 33 chinook salmon and 1 Rock Cod in less than 4 hours. Too bad we had to release everyone because of the catch and release bylaw. Of course there was no damage to the salmon. We had three crab traps out and pulled up 57 crab which again was so awesome but we couldn't keep them all. We had maxed our limit. LOL. I have chartered all my life. I have to say this was one of the best trips I have ever experienced. The price was very reasonable in comparing to what I am used to. Highly recommend this company. I have already booked another trip with Sam at KingSlayer Charters.
