Fish On Charters

Fish On Charters runs specialized and super-exciting fishing trips departing out of Port Alberni, British Columbia. Embark on an angling adventure with them, and you’ll have the best Salmon spots right at your fingertips!

Captain Barry Raynes is the man behind this charter. He’s been fishing for over 25 years and running charters out of from Port Alberni for over 10 years. He’s a native of Vancouver and is very knowledgeable when it comes to the fish species and wildlife that inhabit this area. He can’t wait to show you the wonders of these Canadian waterways.

Port Alberni is surrounded by breathtaking views of mountains and exquisite wildlife, including bears, eagles, orcas, and dolphins. It isn’t named the "Salmon Capital of the World" for no reason, either – Capt. Barry will have you targeting several species of Salmon, such as huge Chinook and Coho, which show up at the end of August through September. There’s also the chance of hooking Halibut and Lingcod.

Captain Barry will take you out on his 25’ Grady White saltwater fishing boat, capable of accommodating up to 4 guests. She’s powered by a 300 HP Yamaha engine, meaning you’ll be treated to a speedy journey along the beautiful waters of Vancouver Island. On board, you’ll find life jackets for safety, a GPS and fishfinder, and a toilet, which is a huge plus for families with little ones.

Capt. Barry will make sure you’re provided with all the fishing gear necessary to hook the Salmon of your dreams, including rods, reels, tackle, downriggers, lures, and frozen bait in the form of herring and anchovies. He’ll also clean and fillet your catch for you, so you can cook it and enjoy the results of your hard work as soon as you get back home.

All you need to do is grab a valid fishing license, and make your way to this tranquil corner of paradise. Get your fish on with Fish On Charters!
