    Ocean Star Charters offers fishing charters on the northwest coast of northern British Columbia, Canada, near the port of Prince Rupert. This area of BC features some of the best fishing on the West coast of Canada. This live-aboard fishing adventure is truly unique.

    On this fishing charter you live aboard the boat, and this gives you the opportunity to experience life on the water. The MV "Ocean Star" serves as a mother ship for Salmon & Halibut fishing charters on the northwest coast of British Columbia near Prince Rupert, B.C. This gives us the advantage of being able to move to different locations throughout the fishing area during your Salmon and Halibut fishing adventure. It also offers you a chance to live, and experience life on the water. We anchor as close as possible to the fishing grounds so that our guests have more time to fish. There is no wasted time running long distances to be where the fish are. We go where the fish are!

    The "Ocean Star" is a 72 foot live-aboard vessel that has been restored for the charter business. Originally a commercial fishing vessel, it now serves as our home away from home and accommodation for our guests to enjoy. Although the Ocean Star was a commercial fishing vessel, it now serves as our mother ship only. Our guests fish on one of our three boats, along with a guide. The fishing boats are pictured throughout the website. All are fully equipped and Transport Canada approved for your safety and enjoyment.
