Bio: For 23 years Gibran White has been living his dream on the west coast of Canada. He was born in Ontario and grew up in Chilliwack, British Columbia. In 1988 he moved to the Hamlet of Bamfield on the west coast of Vancouver Island, and began a career in guiding. In 1991 he opened his own business in partnership with another fisherman and guide. They named their company Morning Magic Charters, bought a boat and were in business. In 1995, he received an offer that allowed him to explore new fishing grounds. He left the charter business in the capable hands of his partner and traveled north to the Haidi Gwaii Island (Queen Charlotte Islands). After two years of guiding he joined Eagle Pointe Lodge; first as a senior guide then a General Manager. The location, north of Prince Rupert along the inside passage was stunning and the fish were abundant. For the next 15 years he called this lodge his summer home; living at the resort from May to September and the Cowichan Valley on Vancouver Island the rest of the year. In 2011, Gibran decided to move back to Vancouver Island to be closer to his family. Gibran is now the Managing Director of Resort Services for Nootka Marine Adventures; the parent company of Moutcha Bay Resort and Nootka Sound Resort.
