always a great time at Painters. The food over at April point is much better than last year. The dock staff and the Fishing guides were great this trip. They are very geared towards keeping the client happy lots of staff.

Great rooms, friendly services. three out of four of us landed a 4lbs coho on the 4 hour fishing trip. They vacuum sealed and packaged with ice packs for us. We saw killer whales and a humpback on the whale tour. Breakfast was good, lunch and dinner were mediocre. The water taxi to April point was a nice touch. We... More

One needs to confirm where the fish are biting before booking a fishing trip. Lot's of deferred maintenance, but not in the rooms. Service personnel are great, especially in the restaurant. Beautiful scenery.
