Spend a day plying the waters off Ucluelet, British Columbia, with Oceans West Adventures. Target Chinook (King), Coho, and Lingcod along the rock line, or venture offshore to the banks for Halibut and Salmon.

Captain Scott’s experience and guest-centered approach gives novice and experienced anglers alike a great foundation for a successful day aboard.

You’ll fish a 2020 custom 30’ Northwest Aluminum Craft that can accommodate up to 8 guests. It is powered by twin 250 HP Mercury SeaPro 4.6L V8 outboards and a comprehensive navigational suite from Simrad that will help you have a successful trip. There’s a private marine head (toilet) forward, and guest lunch and beverage cooler (separate from the fish cooler) for your convenience.

Safety is at the forefront of Scott’s planning and decisions on the water. This vessel is one of two fishing charter boats in Ucluelet to offer guests and crew the added safety of a life raft and EPIRB. This vessel packs an 8-man self-inflating Zodiac life raft, cradle mounted atop the house with a hydrostatic release. This 2022 unit is certified for commercial vessel use by Transport Canada and USCG.

This vessel has high gunnels and railings, great for containing kids. Scott welcomes kiddos on his trips. When booking with children under 10, please mention their ages in your message so we can confirm trip suitability, and suggest any trip alterations when beneficial.

The species you can encounter on your trip include Chinook (King) and Coho (Silver) Salmon,  Halibut, Lingcod, and Rockfish.  You can retain or release the fish you catch.

The captain provides premium fishing gear and will clean your catch after the trip. Please bring snacks and drinks for your group, as well as fishing licenses.

Oceans West Adventures is part of the Evergreen Forest Cabins Ltd family.

Squid Squid Squid!
Squid Squid Squid!
June 23, 2024
Squid Squid Squid! That's whats on the brain of chonooks this time of year! A great start to the late June Chinook fishery in Florencia Bay and Food Islets this week. The Chinook Salmon are drawn to the shallow bays, teeming with squid this time of year. The fishery is shallow and very entertaining. Pound for pound, the squid feeding chinook are the hardest fighting fish of the year. There's nothing quite like catching a big salmon in 20-50 feet of water. The last three days have been an absolute hoot for our multi day crews and a couple afternoon family groups. The lingcod fishery is holding up nicely and continues to produce great numbers. Anglers are allowed 3 lingcod each right now. These white meat hunters stocked the freezer with 110lbs of ling fillets yesterday. Good show Fellas. Book a trip this week to get in on the action!
