It’s time to get away from the hustle and bustle of life and have an experience that is both exhilarating and relaxing, while also being refreshing and rewarding. If you have yet to enjoy the stunning beauty of the Ucluelet while reeling in fresh chinook, coho, and halibut, what are you waiting for? Fishing out here is unlike any other thrill. We invite you along for the adventure of a lifetime – no experience needed!
Your Ucluelet fishing escape starts when you arrive on the edge of the Pacific Ocean, with an enduring coastline that has supported people and wildlife for centuries.
Hop aboard the clean and comfortable Kootenay Kingfisher boat for salmon and halibut fishing. It’s a 25’ Hourston Glascraft with a full cabin, 300 hp outboard motor and a 9.9 hp kicker motor. With an on-board bathroom and room for all the rods, bait, and gear (that are included in your trip) it’s the perfect size for you and up to three other guests (maximum 4 fishermen per trip). The fish you catch are stored on board in roomy ice coolers so they remain fresh until they can be processed at the end of the day by Far West Distributors. We highly recommend this experienced company to all of our clients for complimentary processing of the day’s catch.
Naturally you are wondering about the salmon fishing and halibut fishing yield in Ucluelet. Rest assured, your guides know the hottest spots where huge schools of fish are feeding on plankton, which naturally draws salmon and halibut to the area. Not to mention we’ll be fishing along a migration route, making it even easier to pull in fish that average in size from 7-40 pounds. When the time is right, we can also hit the protected Barkley Sound waters where massive chinook start their journey homeward to spawn.
The trip, however, gives you so much more than pulling in a trophy catch. You’ll enjoy some of the best scenery on the coast and have a chance to see whales, sea lions, eagles and ospreys. By the time you get off the boat, have your fish processed, and head back to your accommodations, you’ll be ready to relax with even more wildlife grazing just past your deck as your day closes with a spectacular sunset.
When it comes to salmon fishing and halibut fishing in Ucluelet, you are in good hands. We have 15 years experience between us and love sharing our passion for fishing with guests from all over the world.
