Wild Pacific Charters - Knot 2 Wild

2110 Lyche Rd Box 1257
Ucluelet BC, Canada

Wild Pacific Charters operates out of Ucluelet, BC, running full day fishing trips targeting big Chinook Salmon and even bigger Halibut in the remote Pacific waters off the west coast of Vancouver Island. Owner and operator Captain Alan Boyd has been fishing these waters his entire life, and knows the best spots and the best techniques for landing these huge coldwater predators.

You will spend the day aboard Captain Alan’s 32’ Grady White Marlin 300. Built in 2006, this tough and reliable vessel was specifically designed for a life of hard service and heavy-duty fishing. At 32’ long, she can easily accommodate groups of five anglers, and will provide a solid fishing platform for pulling in even the feistiest fish.

The vessel comes equipped with Raymarine GPS and fishfinder, Scotty downriggers, and tournament-grade tackle to make sure you always have the upper hand. She also boasts a comfortable interior with an enclosed head for extra convenience on long trips.

Ucluelet is famous for its Salmon and Halibut fishing, and rightly so. The town offers access to some of the finest fishing grounds for these species in the world. On a clear day, you can head out as far as 25 miles in search of the biggest fish the ocean has to offer. Even in bad weather, you can head into the Barkley Sound and enjoy great Salmon fishing and whale watching.

All Wild Pacific Charters trips come with tackle, lures, and a cleaning and filleting service for all your catch. Captain Alan has been running charters in the area for over 20 years, and always goes above and beyond to make sure you don’t leave empty-handed. So grab your license and your camera and get ready for an amazing fishing trip! Canadian tax is already included in the price.

Alan knocked it out of the park.  We fished with him on 8/1. Our morning started out on a bad note as we were delayed 2 hrs due to road construction.  When we finally made it to the pier Captain Alan was ready to go.  He brought us right to the fish.  It was amazing.  We were targeting halibut and got three keepers.  He also switched us over to salmon and it was awesome.  The fight they put up is unbelievable.  He was extremely patient with all three kids and answered all there questions.  He even joked around and they were kidding back and forth.  It says a lot when the kids say next time we come back we have to use Captain Alan again.  We left we 10 fish in total.  He made the entire trip enjoyable and memorable.  We will always remember his famous quote as we had a little fun family competition going on “you only catch what you can handle”.  I would highly recommend Catain Alan without any reservation.  Thanks for the great time!!

We spent a day fishing with Al along the outer Islands of Barkley Sound as it was too snotty to go offshore. We caught 3 Chinook and one Coho, and enjoyed a great day on the water. One of our primary reasons for going with Al was to learn about gear, technique and productive locations.  We learned a lot, and Al even came to our boat later to look at our gear and offer advice. It worked - the next day we caught a Coho on our own boat, using our downrigger sand other gear for the first time!
I highly recommend Captain Al and Wild Pacific.
