Fishing charters

If fishing is your thing, then these guided fishing trips are for you. Make your fishing dreams come true with half or full-day guided fishing trips to some of the best salmon-fishing grounds in the world! Whether you want to drop a line in any of the numerous remote inlets of Desolation Sound, fish around the islands or perhaps cruise over to the world famous fishing grounds of Campbell River, your guided fishing trip will be a trip of a lifetime!

Canada's west coast saw some of the best fishing in the last fifteen years ! Coho and chinook have been the long sought-after beauties off the coast of British Columbia. Other kinds of impressive and delicious fish to catch in these waters include the prehistoric-looking lingcod with its succulent white meat. Many kinds of spiny rock cod live along the coast of BC; in Vancouver Island's inside waters, we're most likely to catch yellow eye (red snapper).Of course, nothing beats fishing for the feisty Chinook (Spring/king) salmon, but there are also healthy runs of sockeye in mid august, followed by pinks and chum in the fall.

These guided fishing trips are run by a professional, experienced guide with a fully-equipped boat. Your guide knows the area well, and he loves to be out there! So get your sun screen and sun glasses - let's go fishing!

Sightseeing Trips in Desolation Sound

The pristine waters surrounding Cortes Island offer some of the most breathtaking scenery and marine wildlife in the world. You could take a guided sightseeing trip south to beautiful Mitlenatch Marine Park, where there are two species of sea lions, seals, thousands of birds, and even cacti. Or how about taking a trip up into the unspoiled inlets of Desolation Sound, Canada. In the inlets' wilderness, you can see black bears foraging along the shore as they come out of hibernation. Along the way, enjoy the awe-inspiring view of the rugged and spectacular coastal mountain ranges. Closer up, see some of the amazing waterfalls which come straight down from the mountains and plunge directly into the ocean. Another phenomenal trip worth taking is the cruise to the memorable Cassel Lake Falls. Swim in the natural jacuzzi at the bottom of the waterfalls, shower in the falls or hike up to Cassel Lake.

There are so many beautiful places and so much amazing wildlife to see on this part of British Columbia's coast. We make all of our guided sightseeing trips custom to suit the needs and desires of each individual guest. Don’t forget your camera!
