Great fishing guide

Carlos makes fishing fun and he is extremely talented in finding the fish. His customer service is great. And the fish you will catch are " UGE" (i.e. huge).

This was my second trip with Carlos fishing pike on Great Slave. It is an awesome trip. Carlos is a fantastic guide. I would highly recommend this trip - whether you are a fishing expert or a novice, Carlos will make it an unforgettable experience. If you are visiting Yellowknife this is an experience you should not miss!

Myself and three other friends went on the Great Slave Pike Fishing trip and it was amazing! Charlie was the guide on our boat and he was wonderful! He taught us a lot about the Yellowknife area and history. Charlie was funny, but also very kind and helpful. I managed to catch the biggest fish I've ever caught at 41.5... More

We took our Aunt and Uncle who are in their 70's on a day trip with Carlos. Carlos taught Auntie Juanita to cast and he teased her until she caught her first fish in "last chance bay". He helped Uncle Rollie bring in a big trophy pike that was 45 inches long. Carlos is entertaining and funny and a terrific... More

Visited my daughter Sam in YK in March 2016 and booked a snowmobile trip with Carlos. We had THE most fun! Easy to maneuver the skidoo. Carlos was an excellent host who took us on a fantastic tour of the lake. 1/2 way in we stopped at a cozy cabin complete with a warm fire and a warm drink and... More

We went on a 2-hour snowmobile tour with Carlos when we visited Yellowknife in March, and we had a great time. My husband had driven a snowmobile before, but I hadn’t. We got a tutorial from Carlos, got outfitted with our helmets and away we went. Carlos was very calm and confident, and it helped me feel better being a... More

We went out on March 18th with Carlos and there were 6 of us total that night that went on the Northern Lights tour. Carlos was a real character and we enjoyed our time with him. The snowmobiles were fun to ride and it was great combining the snowmobiling experience with the viewing of the lights. It took about 30-40... More

There is a damage that is not being fixed on one of the snowmobiles! and he will charge you to pay for it if you stuck during the snowmobile driving! Me and my girlfriend booked a nature viewing by snowmobile as well. There were about 12 people doing a nature viewing by snowmobile besides us. So we drove a snowmobile... More

My daughter and I spent the weekend in Yellowknife and had the best weekend EVER. We owe this to Carlos and outdoor adventure. We took the snow mobile tour first and immediately fell in love. Carlos's explanation on how to ride made it easy and fun. The snow mobiles are in excellent condition and extremely easy to ride. We rode... More
