This five hour charter is perfect for all levels of anglers who want to spend only a portion of their day fishing. We fish as close as 10 minutes from our dock in Horseshoe Bay, West Vancouver. You have the option of setting traps for Dungeness or Spot Prawns on this trip.
Our most popular tour package! The added time gives us the ability to travel to multiple fishing locations between 10 and 30 minutes from Horseshoe Bay, West Vancouver. This significantly improves your chances of success, as the salmon tend to move around depending on tides, feeding patterns and migration.
This tour package represents our best value and your best opportunity for success! It gives us the ability to fish through two tide changes (the most active time for feeding salmon) and at multiple fishing locations. It also provides the greatest chance of seeing dolphins, Orca and other whales.
