Refund Policy: All deposits or full payments are non-refundable in the event that you need to cancel. However we can apply the deposit to a future booking or re-scheduling in that same year or by March 31 the following year if the original trip was scheduled from November 1 – 30. We highly recommend trip insurance if you are booking something with a value over $1,000. Weather Policy: Cancellations due to rain are rare events. Rain does not affect Fraser river fishing trips so we never cancel due to rain for these trips. Our jet boats are covered anyways and fish are already wet. Fishing can often be excellent when it’s raining. For Squamish or Vedder river trips heavy rain and or heat wave conditions can suddenly put these rivers into rough condition. We have no control over this and instead of cancelling we make every effort to find suitable fishing that reflects your desires or you can choose a completely different option at no additional cost, such as Sturgeon fishing.

    BOATS

    Description

    Owner and head guide Brian Mack relies on his 21 ft Custom Weld ‘Storm’ jet boat to transport you safely and quickly on the Fraser river and it’s local tributaries. Our assistant guides use 20-22 ft name brand jet boats such as North River and ThunderJet. The CustomWeld ‘Storm’ has a well designed cabin area that has seats for 5 guests plus captain. It’s so well designed that anyone up to 6 ft-2″ can stand up inside the cab area. The engine is a 5.7 liter V8 fuel injected with a Hamilton 212 pump that delivers a cruising speed of 55 km/h and a top speed of 70 km/h. These boats are rugged and virtually unsinkable ensuring your safety. Life jackets are always on board along with First aid kits and all the typical safety gear. Premium fishing tackle is also what we carry. Our safety record since 1996 is impeccable! Brian Mack has been boating on BC’s coast and rivers since he was 13 yrs old and knows a thing or 2 about navigating our waters.
