Communications

The lodge is equipped with a satellite phone and is available for the your use of our guests. Should someone need to contact you during your stay, the number is 1-709-700-7120.
Mike’s cell phone number is 902-830-1643, However most of the summer while in Labrador there will be no cell service. If you can’t reach Mike on his cell, please email him and he will get back to you as soon as he can. His email address is mikecrosby@eastlink.ca

Fishing Licenses

Fishing licenses will be available at the Camp and are not included in the price of your trip. The Newfoundland Government requires that we ask for ID when issuing Licenses, so please make sure that you have it available.

Gratuities

hawke 8 - CopyTipping is a personal matter, however it is one of the first questions people ask when looking for details on their trip. These comments are then given only as a matter of direction which you can choose to follow or not. It’s also important to remember that tipping should be based on service and that only you can be the judge of that. 

For guides, we might suggest that an average tip would be about $50-$75 per day/ per guide/ per man. That would mean that the average would be say $60 per day for 7 days or about $400 per man. If you wanted to look at it in terms of a percentage, that would be about 6-7 percent of your trip price. Again, this is only a suggestion.

For kitchen staff, it’s a little more complicated, as it is split between the entire camp. We have two kitchen staff and, like our guides, they work long hours. If each of the guests in camp left a $50 – $75 tip, per staff member, that would create a pool of $800 – $ 1200 to be split between the two cooks. Just a thought.
