Background
Captain Ivan Chu has been fishing the Vancouver waters since 2001. He was learning from other commercial fishermen in the area and decided to pursue this career. Captain Roy comes from a fishing family in Vancouver and he's been on the water for almost 30 years. Guiding fishing trips seemed natural to him. Both captains hold valid Certified Tidal Angling Guide designations for the Province of BC, current Marine First Aid, and SVOP & MED A3 federal government certifications for boating skills.
