Fishing Fun From Downtown Vancouver

Spend a lovely day of fishing in British Columbia, Canada together with Fishing Fun From Downtown Vancouver. Let Captain Lee and Captain James Brickenden show you around the hot fishing spots around Vancouver, for groups of up to 4 people departing from downtown. Enjoy a kitted out nearly new fishing machine that will get you on the fish fast. Book your fishing day with the cordial crew, it will be a hoot!

Your journey starts on a 24’ Seahawk saltwater fishing boat. It’s powered by a 300 HP Yamaha V6 300 engine that will quickly take you across the water. For safe navigation and accurate location of the fish, the boat uses modern GPS, fishfinder, radio, as well as radar technology. Your boat also features downriggers, a bed, and an ice-box.

You and the captain will be fishing for Salmon and you can use a variety of techniques. These include bottom and deep sea fishing, trolling, jigging, handlining, as well as spearfishing. You’ll use both light and heavy tackle. If you choose to keep your catch, the captain will clean and bag it for you. Also, his boat is kid-friendly, so don’t hesitate to bring them on your trip.

The fishing rods, reels, tackle, lures, as well as snacks, drinks, and lunch are included in the trip price. The captain also covers you for licenses, so yours is just to arrive on time and relax.

Fishing Fun From Downtown Vancouver welcomes you for a fun-packed day on the water!
