Our Charters
Join us for fishing charters in the beautiful San Juan Islands.  Depending on the season, we offer fishing charters for salmon, halibut and lingcod.  No experience? NO PROBLEM!  We provide the fishing gear and know how to get you fishing within minutes of arriving at the fishing grounds.  Fishing not your thing?  You're in luck.  We also offer wildlife and photography tours. 
  1. Salmon Fishing
    Salmon fishing trips are our most popular charter and typically last 4 to 5 hours. Area 7 San Juan's Salmon season runs from July 1st through the 31st and re opens in September for the month. Depending on the time of year, the San Juan Islands provide opportunity to fish for four different species of salmon; pink, sockeye, coho and the venerable chinook also known as King! (we do occasionally catch chum but they must be returned promptly) These trips are not set on a schedule, but created with the best tide in mind.
  2. Fishing in Canada
    Because of our limited fishing opportunity this summer in the San Juan's, we have gone through the necessary process to take the fun across the border. These trips will start in August and will run 1 to 2 hours longer than our standard half day trip. We will also book these for October if there is enough intrest. These trips will require an enhanced drivers license or passport as well as a Canadian fishing license which you will be required to purchase in advance. Don't worry, when you complete booking, you will recieve a link to the fishing licenses and can print them out ahead of time. It takes less than ten minutes and with the exchange rate cost less than a single day washington state fishing license
  3. Bottom Fishing
    We start the day by fishing for sanddabs and other light tackle species. This allows you to get a feel for the bottom and to collect some bait. Once we've collected enough bait and you start getting a feel for the nuances of bottom bouncing, we move on to heavy gear and start targeting the Ling! The season starts May 1st and goes through June 15th. This is often a 4 to 5 hour trip. We do offer bottom fishing year round and target other species such as greenling, flounder and when in season, Cabezon. All species mentioned can be retained on the lingcod and halibut trips. Halibut dates are limited and book quickly
  4. Custom Charters
    Maybe you only want to salmon fish for half a day. Maybe you want to split the day between fishing and wildlife viewing. Maybe you've been saving a nice bottle of wine for a private evening sunset tour of the San Juan's. Call us!! We want to work with you to provide the opportunity you've been looking for!
  5. Wildlife & Photography Tours
    Fishing not your thing? That's OK! We also offer wildlife and photography tours. The San Juan Islands provide amazing wildlife observation in a beautiful surrounding. From migratory birds to humpback and orca, there is plenty to see in its natural environment and the pleasant evening lighting provides plenty of opportunity for even the least experienced photographer to shoot print worthy pictures. An evening trip doesn't fit into your schedule? Call us! If we haven't booked a fishing trip, we would be happy to open up the day to wildlife tours. These trips are generally 2.5 hours to 3 hours.
  6. Light Tackle Bottom Fishing
    This trip is geared towards young families or advanced anglers alike. A quick boat ride to the fishing grounds, and we are in for some action on light tackle in search of the ever popular sanddab! Although we don't target them, this trip also has the best chance at catching kids favorite underwater menace, the SHARK! These small sand sharks are safely handled and returned to water by the Captain to swim the depths of the Salish Sea. These trips can be booked in August and are reduced rate and time to fit any schedule or budget.
