Hot Rods Ocean Adventures are based in Port Alberni, British Columbia. Captain Doug invites you to join him on a day out on these beautiful waters to enjoy the breathtaking scenery and World class fishery.
You will be sailing aboard the “Salty Hog”, a brand-new 30-foot boat. This beautiful and spacious vessel is powered by twin Yamaha v6 engines for more security and speed. It is fully rigged with all the top-notch navigational electronics, including a GPS, a fish finder, a VHF radio, and a radar. The vessel is air-conditioned, equipped with outriggers and downriggers, and can comfortably accommodate up to eight guests. There is a multimedia system, an ice-box, and the boat’s anchoring system will make sure you stay where you want to. There is plenty room inside with seating for seven people. What is more, the boat has a toilet, a kitchen, and a bedroom for a maximum comfort on a day out on the water.
You will be spending your day on the beautiful waters of Vancouver Island. Targeting Salmon, Cod, Halibut, and a variety of bottom fish, you will be able to fully enjoy the stunning scenery of this region in between the bites. The Captain uses a variety of fishing techniques from light and heavy tackle to bottom fishing, jigging, spinning, trolling, and handline.
Your trip will include all the equipment needed to put your catch together, including rods, reels, tackle, fly-fishing equipment, and lures. Once caught, your fish will be cleaned and filleted for you at the end of the trip to take home.

Doug’s boat was definitely top notch, easily fit 6 of us, only wish there was more padded seating available, hard on the butt near the end of the full day. Doug is a people person, has interesting stories and good taste in music, however does like to smoke a lot (not an issue for me, but might bother some). He knew the sweet fishing spots and did not disappoint us with everyone having a chance to catch a fish. Overall a great day on the Ocean.

Great boat and equipment, Captain smoked a lot. Had I known that I would’ve booked with a different outfit. I brought two of our kids, so the smoking really bothered me. If you smoke you’ll probably have a good time.
