Talk about convenient, you’ll be fishing right from Vancouver, making for a hassle free salmon charter that is a step above the rest. The entire fleet of boats are moored on Granville Island in the heart of downtown Vancouver. If you’re driving there is ample parking nearby. If you’re taking a taxi from your downtown hotel expect a 8-12 minute cab ride, about as easy as it gets! After fishing you can explore Granville Island, one of Vancouver’s most famous attractions with shopping, great restaurants and local artisans, a nice compliment to your day on the water.

March and April is when salmon fishing in Vancouver really ramps up and we start getting more consistent fishing and generally some bigger chinook (king) salmon in local waters. Some of the best fishing during this period is from mid May to late June on the southern Gulf Islands, an area we run to on our 10 hour charters. This is historically a fantastic fishery with solid numbers of chinooks in the 10-20 pound range. From July through to September you really  can’t go wrong, Vancouver salmon fishing season is in full swing, with consistent fishing for all species of Pacific salmon,  including chinooks, cohos (silvers), pinks and sockeye. Great fishing combined with really nice weather, it’s tough to beat!  Our Vancouver salmon fishing charters are extra busy in the summer months so its a good idea to book your trip with us early.

  • Vancouver has year-round fishing options for all 5 species of Pacific salmon.
  • We’re usually fishing with 15-45 minutes of our downtown moorage, maximizing fishing time!
  • Fish with our excellent crew of Vancovuer’s most experienced salmon guides.
September and October are both solid months for our local Vancouver salmon fishing areas, usually 15 minutes from our moorage. This is when the run of Capilano River chinook salmon enter the area on their return home. We often see the biggest salmon of the season during this time period and the fishing is so close to Vancouver!

The fleet consists of four fully-equipped Grady White charter boats. These are the fastest charter boats in Vancouver giving us the capability to run to where the fish are with ease. Most of the fishing is done within 20 minutes of the docks but when you fish with us we always have the ability to run to all the daily hotspots! For smaller groups of up to four people, we use our two Grady White 23-foot Gulfstreams, The ideal layout maximizes deck space for comfort and fishing.

  • Home to Vancouver’s top fleet of dedicated sport fishing charter boats.
  • Fish processing, freezing and boxing services can be easily organized.
  • Boats are spacious, comfortable, covered and all have bathrooms onboard.

All boats have covered cabins, plenty of seating and are plenty of space for all. For larger groups of 5+ people we use our 30-foot Grady White Marlin. On our Vancouver salmon charters we’re not just hooking you up with the best guides but also with first-class experiences and these boats make up the top fleet in Vancouver, that’s a guarantee.
