Runaway Adventures Sportfishing

2900 Harbour Road
Port Alberni BC, Canada

Runaway Adventures Sportfishing is a charter operated by Captain Rob Brandon who has over 30 years of experience in fishing, and who became a professional Government Certified Tidal Angling Guide in 1999. Since then, he has fished the waters of Vancouver, and has started his own fishing and Eco Touring company in the beautiful Port Alberni. Captain Rob will happily teach you the techniques needed to catch your fish and reel it in like a pro, as well as provide unparalleled guidance and information on the ecosystem of the area.

You will fish aboard his beautiful 28 foot Bayliner Cabin Cruiser, which was originally built in 1983 and has a capacity for 4 people. It is powered by a 310 HP Mercruiser MPI engine with a maximum cruising speed of 24 knots. The boat is fully equipped with all the safety gear including life jackets, a liferaft and flares, as well as electronics in form of a GPS, a radar, a VHF radio and a fishfinder. You will also find a flybridge, a toilet, a kitchen with a refrigerator, a bed and an anchoring system aboard this boat.

Runaway Adventures Sportfishing will take you fishing in two locations, depending on your preference, and they are the Alberni Inlet and the Barkley Sound which is located on the West Coast of Vancouver Island. You will fish for Salmon exclusively, as this fish is very interesting to catch. It has good game quality, as well as excellent food quality as their flesh is highly sought after for its delicious taste and nutrition. Captain Rob will provide you with rods, reels and tackle, and will also happily clean and fillet your catch at the end of your trip.

About the Captain

Rob Brandon
Port Alberni, British Columbia, Canada
Member since November 2016
I have been fishing as far back as I can remember, I moved to Port Alberni in 1999 where I became a professional Government Certified Tidal Angling Guide. I am a member of the Sport Fishing Institute of B.C., as well as, a member of the West Coast Fishing Guides Association. I enjoy fishing for Salmon, it can be one of the most exciting things I do, as well as, one of the most frustrating, but when you have a big one on the feeling is great.
