Sorry this is so late - but Max was a great fishing guide and host. He accommodated all our requests for fishing (check), whale watching (check), swimming (check). In fact, he took us all the way to desolation sound to show us a beautiful cove with a waterfall. All 4 of us (including my 6 and 8 year old sons) jumped off the boat and swam to the waterfall. When my son cut himself on the rocks, Max had a first aid kit ready and took great care of him.

The only downside was that we were unable to find anyone to cook our salmon for us - and we were not staying in a place with a kitchen ourselves - but Max tried his hardest and placed a bunch of calls to try to help us out.

Thanks again for a great trip!

Max took me and my family out for a great day on the water. He took us to an awesome swimming hole with and endless bottom. Seen some seals, sea lions and ended our adventure watching a humpback swim around with the beautiful sunset in the background. All in all, it was a fantastic day!

Max was a great guide, a great captain and very easy to get along with. He is very knowledgeable of fishing and the Campbell River area.  I’ve been out with him three years in a row now and I’m excited to go out again in 2019 with him.  Max went out of his way on several occasions to make sure we had a good experience and of course got fish in the boat.  When the fish were biting he made sure we took advantage of it and when they weren't biting he has made the decision to move to a different location which has ended up working out great. We all had a great time with him and all got to catch fish.  Max has a great boat, had all the gear needed for fishing and keep it all in great condition to make sure the fishing experience goes as good as it can.  I would highly recommend using Max for any of your fishing needs in Campbell River and know I will be back in his boat again.

Hard to know where to start, so first a quick list tick with details to follow. Max was exemplary in all things I want from a guide: knowledgeable, friendly, reponsive to communication inquiries, and a great fisherman! Book with him, if you can, you will not regret it!

Went fishing with my family, including my Dad, ages 7-75. All had fun, but my highlight was when Max patiently coached my son into landing his first King (Chinook) salmon. That was priceless!

Max was honest when I called and told me that we were in a tough part of the season. However, he also told me that if anyone could get us on fish he could. Both turned out to be true. At one point we we had on board one of two Chinooks that we saw caught all day. Things picked up late in the day and Max graciously prolonged our trip so that we could make the most of it.

Gorgeous scenery, great fishing, and a fun and relaxing day on a well maintained boat, with equally well maintained gear. What's not to love?

A highlight of our marvelous tour on Vancouver Island! I hope to fish with Max again someday, and if my son has anything to say about it, I probably will.

Spent two days fishing with my work buddies and had a fantastic trip.
Max Wiebe is a very good fishing guide and knows the hot spots to fish.
Fishing boat and gear were all top notch and well maintained which made the fishing trip enjoyable. We were busy catching and releasing fish all day long. Hooked a monster which stripped all the line out without stopping and it was so big it broke the 50Lb test main line. Big ones always get away to be caught another day! Recommend Max Wiebe of CR Sport Fishing for your next fishing experience. You will not be disappointed!!

We came out to CR to visit family and went out for a huge day on the water with Max . We saw a ton of wildlife , humpback whales , seals , seal lion , birds . It was amazing !! We stopped at savory island first to check out the beach . Then went across to desolation sound we’re we jumped off the back of the boat to swim it was warm ! We enjoyed the sun .From there we went to Stuart island for a quick bathroom & food break . Stunning scenery. We went through ripple rock to head home but stopped quickly to drop in a line . Max was an awesome guide lots of information and very chatty . I highly recommend a day out with Max . His boat was very comfortable and clean . Even had a washroom on board . Thanks Max .

So I'm not your typical "sport fishing" passenger, in my 9 to 5 I'm in a suit and tie in downtown Vancouver doing the daily grind. Max was recommended to me by a co-worker who recently did a trip with him and showed me some inspiring pictures. Since I was going up to Campbell River on a work trip anyway, I thought I would take the plunge.

First off, Max is totally service oriented. As I was not familiar with the area, he took his time and gave me the history of the area and CR as a whole.. he was not just "all about his boat" like on other boat trips I have been on.

Speaking of boat, wow! Comfortable, sporty, fun, what more can you say!

The others on the trip had a lot more experience then me and were into fishing.
Catching my own fish and going through all the beginner things though was pretty damn cool, and he knew just where to go and when. I never thought I'd see the day :)

I am looking forward to taking my wife and young kids up late this summer for round 2 with Max, and will definitely pass on the good word to others looking to visit Campbell River.

The personable experience, breathtaking views and wealth of knowledge was everything for me, hopefully next time I'll catch a bigger fish then Max!
