Lazydayz Charters & Adventures

Make some memories in Nanaimo and go fishing with Lazydayz Charters. Having logged many hours on these tides, Captain Michael and his son Kody can tell you all about them.

Depending on the season, you might hook into Chinook Salmon, Coho Salmon, Sockeye Salmon, Halibut, Lingcod, Crab, Rockfish, Shrimp, and who knows what else! On these trips, you can expect to troll and bottom fish using light or heavy tackle. Capt. Michael can also have you Flounder gigging. Any fish within the legal limit is yours to keep. Plus, you can have your catch cleaned. Now that’s dinner!

Your adventure begins aboard a 27’ Cruiser with a capacity for 4 passengers. It has downriggers and all the essentials. There’s a toilet on board for your convenience. You’ll find rods, reels, and tackle waiting for you, along with lures. You might need to get a local fishing license before the trip. This information is usually available online, or you can ask the captain.

Don’t forget to bring bottled water, sunglasses, and sunscreen (non-spray). If you’d like to bring other drinks, just ask. Alcohol is allowed in moderation, so long as you avoid hard liquor as well as glass bottles. Some species might be protected or require a tag to keep them, so make sure you know what to expect.
