Our professional guides will ensure that you have the trip of lifetime, experience the true west coast lifestyle, and bring home your limit of delicious Pacific Salmon and Halibut.

Vancouver Island, BC is known for its world class scenery and fishing. The weather is beautiful, and the seas are calm all year. The Salmon and Halibut found in the Juan de Fuca Strait rival those found anywhere around Vancouver Island. Join us for a tour of the area around Vancouver Island Lodge.
