To accommodate the diverse needs and wishes of today’s angler, Reel Time Fishing Charters offers three distinct fishing packages:

Bronze trips:  The Bronze Package fishes the local waters of Nanaimo and is a great option for shorter trips when the salmon are in close to the picturesque shores and islands of Nanaimo. 

Silver Trips: The Silver Package offers the angler greater off-shore fishing opportunities to fish legendary waters such as Gabriola Island, the Gulf Islands, Nanoose Bay or Lasquite Island.

Gold Trips: The Gold Package is the full deal fishing the very best spots as well as vacuum sealing, freezing and packaging your catch for pick-up when you leave BC.

About the Captain

Andrew Turkstra
Nanaimo, British Columbia, Canada
Member since January 2017
I have been fishing all my life. Many had suggested I become a fishing guide, so I took their advice and after working for a number of different fishing charters on the west coast of Vancouver Island, I started my own business called Reel Time Fishing Charters. With a passion for boating, fishing and the enjoyment of helping people catch fish, there has been no looking back!
