Saltwater-City Fishing Charters offers trips for Salmon in Vancouver, Canada. Take your family out, introduce your kids to fishing, have fun with your fishing buddies, or even take your colleagues chasing their first Salmon around the Vancouver waters. Combine the fishing experience with breathtaking mountainous scenery, eagles, sea lions, seals, and even whales!

Vancouver Salmon fishing is more than just an action-packed day with your friends and family. Just 10 minutes after you leave the dock, you will be able to hook the bait and get ready for some rod-bending trolling action! While the Chinook Salmon’s bite is good year-round, Coho starts patrolling the waters late spring. Sockeye and Chum Salmon are best during the late summer and early fall. And if you’re after a good meal at the end of the day, Dungeness crab and Spot Prawn are good all year round!

If you are ready test the waters of the “Salmon capital of the world,” step aboard the “Arima,” a 19’ Sea Ranger boat. This beauty comes powered by a single low emissions 135 HP Evinrude ETEC, as well as a Yamaha outboard auxiliary motors. Both engines reduce the fuel consumption and are not as harmful to the environment as most of the others!

The “Arima” was designed specifically for west coast fishing. She can comfortably take up to three anglers and is rigged with top-notch navigational electronics and other professional features.

All trips come with quality gear, tackle, bait, and the fish cleaning and packing service. You will also be provided with light refreshments, so feel free to bring your own food and don’t forget to purchase a fishing license. Scenic views of Coast Mountains are also included!

Tax is included in the price.
