Highroller Charters - Nanaimo

Highroller Charters invites you on a fishing adventure of a lifetime with one of the best captains on Vancouver Island, in British Columbia, Canada. Captain Todd Jenkins has fished the waters of both East and West Coast of Vancouver Island for over 30 years.

Captain Todd spends the months of April and May in Nanaimo fishing for Chinook Salmon and the super tasty Dungeness Crab. Captain Todd will be happy to lower the Crab cage into the cold waters of Nanaimo so you can treat yourself to a delicious dinner.

Highroller Charters will take you out on a 27-foot Sea Ray cuddy cabin originally built in 1979. The boat is powered by a 300 HP 6.2 litre fuel injected Mercruiser inboard/outboard engine, with a maximum cruising speed of 25 knots. The vessel is fully equipped with all the necessary safety and electronic features such as life jackets, and a fishfinder.

If you are taking your family out on the water you will be happy to know there is a toilet on board for your convenience. You’ll also find an icebox on board for the catch you intend to keep, as well as a set of downriggers that will help you maximize the catch.

Highroller Charters offers full day fishing trips in Nanaimo aboard a comfortable boat and with an experienced crew. If you are looking to spend a day on the productive waters fishing for world-class Salmon while also enjoying bonding with family and friends, then Highroller Charters is a great choice.

Captain Todd has been fishing the waters of both East and the West Coast of Vancouver Island for over 30 years. He says: "My Dad was a commercial Salmon fisherman. I used to tag along at a very young age so fishing was in my blood early". Captain Todd is an expert on targeting Salmon, Halibut, and Lingcod, and always throws in the crab cage so his guests can later enjoy the super delicious Dungeness Crab. It's all about going the extra mile and making every customer a returning friend for many years to come.
