Catch of the day: your breath

Nothing compares to hauling a monster salmon or halibut into the boat. Our experienced fishing guides can help you land the big ones—and a string of days to remember.

What's biting

We go after halibut, lingcod, rock cod and five species of salmon. It all depends on what’s in the water when you visit, but tight lines and bent rods are guaranteed.

Gear up

Along with enthusiastic and experienced guides, we have everything you need for a great day of fishing. State-of-the-art rods, reels and downriggers give you more than a fighting chance when a big one bites. Rain gear will keep you warm and dry from cast-off to tie-up.

Take your catch home

Fish are kept chilled on the boat, then processed and flash-frozen when they hit the dock. Guests on direct flights from Prince Rupert can generally take 50 lbs. of fish home, but it’s wise to check with your travel agent or airline.

Many guests send all or part of their catch to St. Jean’s Cannery & Smokehouse to be smoked (hot or cold), candied or canned. 

Once processed, the fish is shipped to your home.

The fishing guides are second to none. Each one of them has their own style, which makes every day out on the water a new experience.


The fishing was simply phenomenal. The guides were knowledgeable and made sure I had the trip of a lifetime by taking me to the best spots.
