Hot Rods Ocean Adventures

(11) Just booked!

Hot Rods Ocean Adventures welcome you aboard the Salty Hog 2. Our 255 Grady White Sailfish fishing machine will get your hearts racing with excitement. Powered by twin Suzuki 175 outboards, jaunts to the fishing grounds will be an enjoyable rush.

The Boat can accommodate up to 7 passengers in a true offshore platform of safety with a very comfy ride. On-board bathroom facilities will keep you stress-free!

Their vessel is equipped with top of the line fishing gear, including Scotty downriggers, Fenwick Eagle and Hmx rods with Diawa reels to play with the salmon, and Ugly Sticks with Penn and Okuma reels to tackle the Monster Halibut and Lingcod that lurk in the depths.

They also have top of the line Radar and Sonar to find the fish and keep our passengers safe.

Hot Rods Ocean Adventures is located in Canada’s Ultimate Fishing Town: Port Alberni, in the middle of the Pacific Rainforest. The sights, the sounds and the beauty of the west coast are indescribable with whales, seals, sea lions, dolphins, otters, black bears, and the everpresent bald eagles.

All you need is clothes, rain gear, camera, snacks and beverages. Your trip will include all the equipment needed to put your catch together. Once caught, your fish will be cleaned and filleted at the end of the trip to take home.

    Don’t fish? Come for a tour of Canada’s western coast. Experience the rugged coast, sea lion covered islands and all BC has to offer. Eagles dive the boat hoping for a meal and it is rare to not have a few seals and whales pop up. Bears wander the beaches and sea lions steal your food. This coastal region is a scenic wonder.

    Spend 5 hours trolling the Alberni Inlet for Chinook and Spring Salmon, lingcod, snapper and rockfish or drop a couple of crab traps. There is currently a ban on retaining Sockeye salmon in the inlet (you have to go to Barkley Sound to retain) but it’s a relaxing day and a high probability of snagging a dog fish
