Visiting the Sunshine Coast of BC? Looking for excitement and an adventure that the whole family can enjoy? Join us aboard the Gulf Rascal on a Pender Harbour and Sunshine Coast fishing charter starting from the Gov’t dock in Madeira Park.
Sunshine Coast, BC waters,including Pender Harbour and Egmont, abound with salmon, cod, spot prawns, seals and wildlife. Orcas, Sea Lions, Harbour Porpoises and Pacific White-sided Dolphins are regular visitors. Humpback whales often summer in the area.
Year round sport fishing for spring or chinook salmon at a variety of our local hotspots. This is best suited for a few people or small group.
Ling cod, Yellow-eye and Rockfish are exciting and rewarding for larger groups and families. Lots of action and excitement for the children as well as adults. A great opportunity to catch that first fish and a variety of fish. We use descending devices to safely release unintentional catches.
Spot prawns are a specialty with us. Learn more about how the commercial fishers do it. You will be aboard a commercial boat using the same equipment and on productive prawn grounds. Come out and pull the prawn traps or combine with some fishing. Fishing charters include pulling prawn traps.
This is a hands on experience that all will enjoy. The best part is taking home what we catch … that is, what you don’t eat on board. You can not beat wild Spot Prawn sashimi.
In addition to fishing, our charters include scenic, wildlife and eco-tours. Fishing charters and tours are an ecological adventure. Guests are introduced to the native flora and fauna of the Sunshine Coast, B.C. We also specialize in bird-watching and help enthusiasts spot a variety of species found along the west coast of British Columbia.
Join us for a cruise in Malaspina Strait, Jervis Inlet, Agammemnon Channel and Sechelt Inlet. View local wildlife and birds in wild and scenic areas such as Egmont, Skookumchuck Rapids, Hotham Sound and Princess Louisa Inlet.
