We did a four-hour inter-island cruise and it was so much fun. Craig knows the history of the area and does a great job of explaining what you're seeing and where we were visiting. Highly recommended for adults.

We were staying near Parksville and wanted to take a sightseeing boat ride, not a fishing trip this time. The only one I could find nearby was this one with Central Island Adventure Tours. The web site indicated that they did them only at 10 AM and it was already 9:15. On a whim we called Craig and asked if... More

My 16yr old son and I spent the day fishing with Craig and had a great time! We caught some fish and some crabs and Craig was awesome. He showed my son the difference between the fish and what we were allowed to catch/keep and also showed him how to clean the fish when we got back to the dock.... More

I took my son fishing with captain Craig on the weekend and we had an awesome experience. Craig was professional, courteous, and most important he put us on the fish. I would strongly recommend this charter for anyone seeking a salmon fishing charter in the Nanaimo area.

We had an excellent tour with Craig, we selected a more sight seeing trip as opposed to straight up fishing, and it was so much fun, we dropped crab traps, collected oysters, had lunch at Salt Spring, and watched a pod of Orcas roll right under the boat, memories to last a lifetime for sure. Craig was timely, pleasant, helpful... More

We had an awesome experience with Criag! He was very friendly and easy going. We got one 16 pound salmon and hauled up some crab pots which he put out earlier and had a great feed of crab as well. Over all great experience and would recommend Craig to anyone!

Last August, the three of us decided on a spur of the moment tour of the waters near Nanaimo. We set up the time over the phone and the next day, we were out on the water enjoying ourselves. The guide was knowledgeable and friendly. He was from our home town but had lived in Nanaimo these past 20 years.... More

Went for a two hour tour with Craig. Was very knowledgeable and informative about all the islands. Had lots of time to stop and take in all the wonderful sites of the harbour area! Would go again in a heartbeat and recommend it to everyone!

I grew up on the island and of course fished the island. My personal experiences are unforgettable. That being said, there was an opportunity to take my adult son and my adult two grandsons (San Diego,CA) salmon fishing. The intention was to provide them with the essence of my fishing memories. After the introductions, paperwork, and safety orientation were off... More
