Reel Time Fishing Charters offers a range of affordable trip options, a captain with more than 2 decades on the water, and stable fishing platform, and easy moorage and parking nearby. Captain Turk’s friendly personality, extensive experience and love and enjoyment of guiding are just some of the reasons that his clients return year after year.
You will be fishing aboard a 26 ft Hourston cuddy cabin, with ample room for 6 guests. The captain and the boat are Transport Canada certified and approved.
When it comes to the fishing, the primary target is Chinook (King) Salmon. The Georgia Strait is famous for its migration of Columbian and Fraser River fish and April-May sees some of the best fishing in the Pacific Northwest. In addition to these fish, you can expect to catch tasty Lingcod.
Crabbing is another activity you can enjoy on most trips. It is available on their four, six, and eight hour fishing charters. There are also scenic and wildlife options for those who wish to mix it up a little.
Captain Turk’s COVID-19 precautions for a safe and enjoyable service: Private charters (groups no larger than six consisting of family members & close friends only), face masks for those who wish to wear them (we have extras aboard our boat), a sanitized boat (all touch points to be disinfected before each trip), and a handwashing station (our boat offers running water, a sink, and soap for our guests to wash their hands after handling fishing or sightseeing gear). Any charters cancelled because of COVID-19 (travel restrictions, sickness, etc.) will receive a full refund of their deposit.
The summer of 2021 will be forever remembered as different. At Reel Time Fishing Charters & Marine Tours, our desire is to replace the fear factor with the fun factor by ensuring a safe environment.
