Reel Life Charters offers world-class fishing in Sooke, the gem of Vancouver Island. Offering some of the best Salmon fishing in the world, the waters of Sooke are also rich with Halibut, Rockfish, and Lingcod. Captain Travis is a patient angler and has had years of experience mastering the local waters.

If fishing in Sooke sounds appealing, you will absolutely love it aboard a 28-foot Pursuit boat. This is a clean, seaworthy vessel that is well-prepared for the current bite. Step aboard, and the boat’s twin 300 HP Suzuki engines will power you to the best playgrounds in the area. Perfect for accommodating up to six anglers, the vessel is fully rigged with top-notch navigational electronics and many other professional facilities. Inside, there is a toilet and bed for your maximum comfort when relaxing in between the bites.

Sooke offers outstanding fishing opportunities. You will be able to enjoy the thrill of reeling in Chinook Salmon year-round! Coho Salmon bite best summer through fall and early autumn is the best time to chase Chum Salmon. If you are after Pink and Sockeye, they are abundant in late summer. To make your Sooke bucket list even more exciting, you could add Lingcod, Rockfish, and Crab to it. Or even battle Halibut!

When you return to the shore, the captain will take care of processing your catch so that you could have your weekly dinners sorted out. Before you start, you will need to purchase a Tidal Waters Sport Fishing License with a Salmon stamp, grab something to eat and drink, and come aboard!
