Fishing for Halibut of the coast of Vancouver Island is an amazing west coast fishing experience. We fish for “chicken halibut” (12 to 25 lbs) and our expert fishing guides know how to find larger (60 to 120 lbs) fish. If halibut fishing is what you are hoping for please mention at the time of booking as you will need a full day of guided fishing.
Albacore Tuna Fishing
With warming ocean water close to Vancouver Island over the last couple of years, conditions promise to produce some of the best tuna fishing we have ever had. The six-week window that begins around the middle of August when thousands of albacore tuna pass along our offshore Vancouver Island waters is within easy reach of our substantial fleet of large, fast and fully equipped vessels. This fishery is so exciting that it has quickly become the season end passion for many anglers.
This season highlight is not just about the fishing, but the entire experience. Newton Cove Resort in Esperanza Inlet, only fifteen minutes from the open ocean is ideally located to access the tuna fishing grounds. Please contact one of our guest services representatives for further information.
