What should I bring?

Large fish coolers. We have airline approved Styrofoam coolers for sale at $30 each plus taxes, however you are more then welcome to bring your own.

We have a variety of raingear to offer between the sizes of men’s medium to XL, as well as rain boots from Men’s size 9 to 12 at a first come first serve basis. If you are a XXL or larger, we recommend you bring your own.

Personal toiletries. Sunscreen, hats, and sunglasses are always a good idea. Long days on the water can be very demanding on the eyes and skin.

Warm clothing is highly recommended, even though summer sun can be warm, the weather can change, and you may require warm clothing.

Motion sickness prevention medicine. Although most people are not affected by sea conditions, it is not worth the chance of it ruining your fishing trip. Purchase “the patch” also known as Transderm V or Dramamine, Bonamine is also good. Gravol works but is not as effective.

Personal alcoholic beverages – we provide basic mixes and pop. Guests can bring their own alcohol and we have a store nearby that provides a small selection of beer, liquor, and wine. Some packages can be customized to include alcohol.

Where do I buy a fishing licence?

Whether you are from Canada or outside of Canada, all saltwater fishing activities requires everyone to hold a BC Pacific Tidal Waters Sport Fishing Licence including children under 16 years old (although kids need a licence, there is no fee). Online fishing licences are available at Fisheries and Oceans Canada:

When purchasing my BC Pacific Tidal Water Licence, do I need a salmon tag?

Yes, if you plan on taking some salmon home, then a salmon tag is required. Follow the prompts when buying your licence.

How much fish can I expect to take home?

Currently, the limits in our area allow anglers to retain 8 salmon, up to 2 halibut, 3 rock fish (2 of which can be vermillion) and 2 lingcod per trip for each licence holder (4 of the 8 salmon can be Chinook and the rest Coho, pinks, or chum). Most guests take home limits of Chinook and Halibut and some of the other available fish. We primarily target large Chinook and Halibut and the other species are by catch while fishing for our targets.
