He is very knowledgeable about the waters and fish. He allows you to hook your own fish and bring them in. He gives great advice on where to get... More

Gary knows where the fish are, knows how to catch them and knows what makes for a great fishing adventure. Boat is clean and well maintained. If you want fish, I doubt there is anyone better. As some others have noted, boat specs for the 28' Grady White include "outfitted with full washroom facilities". Be aware those facilities are for... More

Tremendous fishing experience! Gary's team took us out to two different places and we brought 2 Chinook and 1 Coho into the boat. We definitely got our 8 hours worth of fishing and can't wait to go back next summer.

Gary was an excellent guide. He was a wonderful teacher and very encouraging to all ages! He taught us how to fish for salmon, answering all of our questions. The boat was great (bathroom for girls). He even gave us some travel tips and history fun facts! Over all we must say we had a relaxed, informative and successful trip.... More

Had a good time, seemed to be catching more fish than the other boats around.Only issue was site says snacks and refreshments and were not offered any. We brought lots of food anyways so wasn't an issue but shouldn't be on the site if it isn't offered.

Gary is an excellent guide and fishermen. He provides a fine fishing experience, and does everything possible to please you. There is a marine head (bathroom) on the boat, should you need it. Gary knows the local waters very well, and does everything he can to help you get fish.

Having used other guides out of Campbell River, Gary definitely provides the best fishing experience. Boat and gear is top of the line, well maintained and always reliable. Gary knows the area well and will go wherever is required to catch fish. He is always on time, well prepared and provides a safe experience. I've probably spent ~30 days fishing... More

We booked a short notice charter with Gary and he was excellent and very accommodating! Gary met us on the docks and was organized and ready to go right away. The boat and gear were in excellent condition and comfortable. Gary was very knowledgable and professional. Gary kept no secrets and was genuinely enthusiastic about sharing his expertise. We only...
