Good Time Dave’s Fishing Charters

Good Time Dave’s Fishing Charters specializes in catching big fish and creating lifetime memories on the waters of Vancouver Island, Canada. If you are looking to butt heads with big Chinook Salmon, Halibut, and many other species in the renowned waters of The Juan De Fuca Strait – this crew is your best choice.

Enjoy your trip aboard a 21’ Sea Sport boat, which comes powered by a 225 Yamaha engine. The vessel is wheelchair accessible and has a maximum cruising speed of 35 knots. It is fully equipped with top-notch navigational electronics, which include a GPS, a VHF radio, a fish finder, and a radar.

As well as that, there is a toilet on board for your maximum comfort when spending your day on the water, an anchoring system to make sure you stay rooted to the fishing grounds, and downriggers for professional fishing. The boat provides enough space for 4 anglers to fish in comfort.

Join the crew and enjoy the thrill of catching Salmon, Halibut, Rockfish, Lingcod, and Crab. You will be going for trolling, bottom fishing, jigging, and light tackle, fishing the inshore, nearshore, and offshore water. Kids are welcome on board, as well as a group of friends and a family.

Each trip comes inclusive with all the necessary equipment to make a great catch possible. You will be provided with rods, reels, tackle, live bait, and lures. If you decide to keep the catch, it will be cleaned and filleted for you at the end of the trip for a ride home.

Join Good Time Dave’s Fishing Charters and explore the prolific waters of Vancouver Island for a memorable time!
