Such a great experience! I would highly recommend Kim for a fishing tour. We brought in nine fish. She was highly knowledgeable about the local waters and fish we were catching. Made some memories for my 7 and 17 year old that we won’t soon forget.

I booked the charter last minute and was able to bring my two boys ages 9 and 12 out for their first Ocean fishing experience. Captain Sean and Captain Kim made us feel at home while sharing their expertise and knowledge with all of us. Would highly recomment booking them and look forward to our next charter with them when we return!

Nice people and equipment but they didn't put us on fish during a six hour charter. Caught 4 small native coho that were not legal to keep. Saw several fish on the screen but no bites. The one fish we had on that had some weight to it got tangled in the down-rigger line. The down-rigger should have been pulled for the retrieve

After you, we were the next most disappointed when you lost your fish, unfortunately loosing fish is a part of fishing as is catching fish and I do understand how disappointed you must have been. We do our very best for every customer on every charter, including yours. I know it does not help, but we do care a lot about you and all our guests and we face tangles and slow fishing from time to time as all guides do. We caught and landed 4 coho, for many, that is a decent days fishing.

Great evening out on the water with Brenda and Frank. They have a clean and comfortable Sea Ray boat, fully equipped with washroom on board. Both Brenda and Frank are very knowledgeable about fishing and the fishing area. A great charter for couples...Yes, we caught fish too!

This was our first salmon fishing trip on the west coast... We had a good day on the water even though the fish were not biting heavily... we landed a couple of nice coho and enjoyed the beautiful scenery. Frank and Brenda are excellent hosts and made us feel right at home. We will definitely be back!

Frank and Brenda have taken us out twice now and both trips were amazing. They have a very comfortable and clean boat making it a great experience for everybody, including anyone who decides to sit back and relax instead of fishing. We managed to bring home 11 fish the first trip and 5 this trip - plus many more that were released. Frank and Brenda brought us to some great spots and helped us catch some awesome fish - including 13, 15 and 20 pound chinook salmon this year. They are not only professional but they are a lot of fun to spend the day fishing with - we would rate them even higher if we could! See you guys next year!

This was my first ever fishing trip. I caught a really good Chinook salmon within the first 20 mins! Brenda and Frank’s boat and service was excellent. Tonight the family are all eating salmon fillets. What a great experience......we are booking again before we leave.

I'm now about to start my third year chartering with i Charter and Tow & for a very good reason. They have the "right stuff".
Want fish? They'll find them. Want world class scenery? Just look around. And, if you're out at the right time of year ... pods & pods of killer whales.
I'm going to go for a new record this year & beat my 29 lb Chinook of 2017. Book me in!

We booked a 5 hour fishing trip for 4 of us from Ontario on July 28. The day was beautiful and the ocean was calm and we enjoyed a great day of fishing with Frank and Brenda. They were great hosts and very knowledgeable. Frank taught us how to set the hook and reel in the fish which was a lot of fun. We caught 9 fish that day but only kept 6. If I am ever back again in the area, I would definitely book with them.
