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, red snappers 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.


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.

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.


In addition to fishing, our charters are also scenic, wildlife and ecological 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.
