Everything was excellent. The boat and equipment were in great shape. I went solo and the Captain was very friendly and welcoming. It was a great morning of fishing and getting the chance to drive the boat was fun.

Shane is a perfect captain and a very nice guy. He has been very kind and patient with our 3 daughters... Plus, he did his best to give us the opportunity to catch big salmons. And we did! I strongly recommend.

Shane communicated very well with us and allowed us to move our start time for the charter. He reviewed safety procedures and ensured we ‘out of provincers’ had our licence and tags. Within 30 mins, we had two hits and brought in four fish over...More
