Cliff’s Chinook Charters

Join Cliff’s Chinook Charters in Comox, and explore the waters of the eastern edge of Vancouver Island! Captain Cliff Moors has over 30 years of saltwater fishing experience, so he’ll make sure that you have an amazing time, and that you reel in some prized fish.

You’ll be traveling on your captain’s 25’ Aquasport cuddy cabin, with lots of deck space to fight some huge Salmon species! It can accommodate up to 4 anglers, and features a private head and a shower. The boat is also equipped with a wireless trolling engine that allows you to troll quietly when targeting easily spooked fish.

Capt. Cliff specializes in fishing for Salmon, and uses bottom fishing, trolling, and jigging techniques. The tackle includes custom made Sage rods and Abel Mooching reels, which the captain and crew find to be the most effective combination. You’ll target Chinook, King, Coho, Silver, Sockeye, Pink, and Chum Salmon, as well as Halibut.

The use of the company’s tackle and lures is included in the price, and the crew can clean and fillet your catch for you free of charge at the end of your fishing excursion. Seeing as the captain is also a Red Seal Chef, he can even send you home with a mouth-watering recipe or two so you can enjoy a sumptuous meal at the end of the day!

You’ll explore the Strait of Georgia, overlooked by the majestic Comox Glacier in the company of whales, seals, and other members of this fantastic ecosystem. Captain Cliff moves between Campbell River, Black Creek and Comox, depending on where the fish are at the moment.

As regulations often change, please check if you can keep the catch before the booking (google it or ask the captain)

Join Cliff’s Chinook Charters and have an incredible fishing adventure on the beautiful waters of British Columbia!
