Fishing SafetySafety First, Second and Third!
Before we go out on the water, we take all Good Hope guests through a complete orientation with our boats and to life on the Inlet, covering everything from boat safety to preparing a cut plug herring and netting a salmon. Even novices go onto the water prepared. Selected guides carry defibrillators and oxygen aboard, all the boats have first aid kits, and we have a full-time first aid attendant on staff at the lodge. Our first aid room is very well equipped and our guides have a minimum of Level 1 first aid training.
We stay in touch on the VHF radio and encourage our self guided anglers to fish using the buddy system. We have a dedicated chase boat available to help if needed for safety reasons.
