This Boston Whaler is new to FishingBooker, but Oceans West Adventures is not. Oceans West Adventures has 60+ five-star reviews on FishingBooker from the last four years. We’ve decided to add this Whaler to FishingBooker for the 2024 season and look forward to welcoming you aboard.

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

Captain Owen offers a guest-centered approach gives novice and experienced anglers alike a great foundation for a successful day aboard.

You’ll fish a 30’ Boston Whaler with new seating for 6 guests. It’s powered by twin 225 HP Mercury SeaPro 4.6L V8 outboards and a comprehensive navigational suite from Simrad. There is 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 our minds at Oceans West Adventures. This Whaler carries safety gear meeting or exceeding Transport Canada standards.

This vessel has new back deck railings. Great for added security while playing fish and containing kids (and kids at heart).

We welcome kids on our trips. When booking with children under 12, 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.

Oceans West Adventures 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.
