There is an expected 895,000 people visiting Vancouver via cruise ship this year on over 240 cruise ships! Luckily for you there are all kind of fun sport fishing options that are available in Vancouver, here’s a break down of fishing options you can enjoy before or after your cruise…

Saltwater Salmon Fishing in Vancouver

Don’t think you have to go to Alaska to get in some great salmon fishing. Our charter boats are less than 15 minutes from the Vancouver Cruise Ship Terminal, so you can get out for a full or half day of guided Vancouver salmon fishing with no big travel plans!

From May to late September we have excellent fishing for all five species of Pacific salmon, right from Vancouver. Boats are private and comfortable for groups of up to six people. You don’t need to bring anything, except your fishing license (instructions on getting that at time of booking) and we supply all fishing gear, bait and equipment. Boats are fully guided with Vancouver’s most experienced salmon fishing guides.

For more info, visit our Vancouver salmon fishing charter page or email us for pricing and availability. This is the most convenient Vancouver fishing option if you’re visiting via cruise ship!


Fly Fishing While on Your Cruise

Yes, if you’re visiting Vancouver on a cruise, we can get you out fly fishing!! You’ll be fishing with our expert crew of Vancouver fly fishing guides, and we can pick you up at your downtown hotel, or we can pick you up right at the Vancouver Cruise Ship Terminal. We’ll have all the fly fishing equipment ready for your day with us and drive you to some beautiful wild rivers north of Vancouver. We’ll get you back mid afternoon, or whenever you need to get back to the ship.

We can accommodate any group size and ability. We teach lots of new anglers how to fly fishing, all part of our program. And this year, we have a big run of Pink Salmon on BC’s south coast rivers which will provide fun fly fishing opportunities in July, August and September.

Learn more about our Vancouver fly fishing guide service here, or email us for more info, availability and pricing. Summer months are super busy for fly fishing and we have lots of cruise ship visitors fishing with us, so be sure to inquire early.


Include Sturgeon Fishing on Your Cruise

Our third option for a fishing trip while visiting Vancouver on a cruise are our sturgeon fishing trips on the Fraser River. This trip will take some pre-planning and is perfect if you’re visiting Vancouver for some days before or after your cruise. Our sturgeon fishing trips take place about 90 minutes east of Vancouver and is an excellent option offering spectacular fishing all Summer long.

You will need your own transportation, there are car rentals in downtown Vancouver and once you book we’ll send you a detailed reservation confirmation including driving directions to our sturgeon fishing locations east of Vancouver. Be advised these trips make for a long day if you’re limited on time, but if you’re game for a long fun day then they are doable on a cruise layover in Vancouver.

Our sturgeon fishing trips are fully guided on private jet boats, just you and your group onboard, enjoying the mighty Fraser River and the biggest freshwater game fish in North America! There is no doubt the Fraser River offers some of the best sturgeon fishing found anywhere in the world.
