Opt for a seasoned local guide like Captain Scott in Ucluelet who knows the area well. His expertise can make a significant difference, ensuring you have a successful and enjoyable first fishing trip. Ucluelet’s weather can be unpredictable. Dressing in layers ensures you stay comfortable throughout the day. Pack the essentials, be patient and enjoy the experience!

Kyle is an extremely hard working guide. My dad and I took my 13yr old son out for his first salt water fishing experience, and it was exceptional. We caught rock fish, a big Ling Cod and two beautiful Spring Salmon. We also caught crab and prawns. It was a great day yet it was looking like the Salmon were a long shot. As the day was winding down Kyle's sheer hustle yielded results. Expectations were definitely exceeded. We'll be back to Ucluelet and we'll definitely book Kyle again.

Be sure to bring warm clothing. Although the day of the charter was very windy and cold despite being hot on the previous day. Layers of clothing is the way to dress. And if necessary bring some Gravol if you are prone to motion sickness!

Absolutely! There are plenty of fishes and weather is good but be prepared of sea sickness and ways to prevent it. Check the waves too just in case you get sick with movement of boats due to waves.

The coastline is protected a bit by small rock islands which reduced the swells. We also go to see some sealions nearby.

Be prepared for chonky salmon that run football fields and get your adrenaline going! Plus huge halibut and even albacore tuna if you go at the right time.

Book a spot to camp or hotel well in advance. Ucluelet camp ground was excellent very reasonable $42.00 a day

I would recommend getting a hold of Brent from West Coast ocean charters. He knows his stuff. He's an amazing fisherman we had a great time on his boat and everything was excellent!

Wear several layers. The best fishing is on a cloudy day, but that means no sun to keep warm

Dress for the weather, take some gravol if it's windy to avoid motion sickness.
