We booked two-days with Hot Pursuit in the first week of September 2021 and from start to finish it was a great experience. Shawn helped answer all our pre-trip questions and Chris demonstrated the calm competence and patience with us first-timers that many other reviewers have mentioned. Chris keeps the boat clean and gear in top notch shape. Although fishing was a slow Chris still got us into some nice Chinooks and one big halibut! A great adventure we look forward to repeating!

OUTSTANDING!!! We had a great fishing trip on Aug 22, 2023. Slaying fish all morning long one after the other. Cody was a great fishing guide. Knew exactly where to go and what to do. We all felt comfortable and safe the entire time. He gutted and cleaned all our fish and kelp us entertained all day with good fishing stories. Prices are fair and we would recommend these guys to anyone looking for a good fishing trip.

Went out with Luke for a 4 hour morning fish. In less than 4 minutes of trolling I had my first salmon - 12 pounds - then less than an hour later a 22 pounder. Luke knew just where to go to catch rockfish & Ling cod to round out the morning. A superb job of cleaning & filleting & I was on my way well before noon with 45 pounds of fish for the winter.
Thanks Luke, I'll be back next year!

I am not new to fishing on the West Coast of Vancouver Island.
We were fishing with Shawn Grant the owner of Hot Pursuit Charters.
My remarks are not about the boat or equipment which are excellent, but about our guide and operator Chris.
The weather was less than ideal, with wind and rain, however we were still able to catch fish, due to Chris’s fishing experience and professional boat handling.
We rate our experience at above expectation.
A must to repeat!

I tagged along with the boys on their trip - oh boy did I great time! Day 1 was a bad day for me cause instantly got sea sickness but I went on - throwing up ;)

Our guide Chris recommended me to buy this patch to put behind your ear and it worked!

Day 2 I caught my 1st fish and it was a massive halibut! I get it now.... it’s was the thrill and excitement! Our guide was extremely genuine and helpful. He answered all my fish questions (which was a lot). We even had dinner with our guide cause he was such a solid dude! He’s a local and he’s been fishing for 30+ years. I highly recommend this charter. It was a lot of fun 😁

Chris the guide is the hardest working professional guide I’ve chartered with. For two straight days he worked his ass off to get us fish , every single minute he is working hard . His focus is amazing and he has a very strong work ethic . He gets us the fish and the boat and gear is first class. No breakdowns or gear failures …just pure hardcore fishing ! 5 stars

We have been fishing with Hot Pursuit Charters for many years now and their guides have always worked very hard to get us our fish, even when the fish gods are not on your side, they are knowledgeable of the area and conditions to give you a chance to catch fish. I would recommend this charter company if you were able to get to Ucluelet. BC.

WOW. What an amazing experience!!!
Have been fishing all my life in many different ways, but this was a first. Our guide Chris was very knowledgeable and fun to spend the couple days with.
In addition to catching our limits on halibut as well as some delicious salmon, the views along the west coast of Vancouver Island are breathe taking. We also were lucky enough to see a humpback whale, some dolphins and sea otters. If you have been considering doing this don't wait it is an experience of a lifetime.
With their state of the art sea worthy vessels and extensive knowledge of the area, NONE do it better than Hot Pursuit Charters!!!

We fished with those guys for two days 8/10 & 8/11. Fishing was fantastic and the weather was prefect. Limited out on the first day in about 2 hours kings and silvers. Next day was a little slower but the fish was big. 26 lbs. the biggest. Loved the boat and the guide / captain ( Cody) was great. Working on bringing 2 more people with us next year.

My wife and I booked two days with Hot Pursuit and couldn't be happier. From start to finish everything was above expectations. Shawn answered all our questions and was very helpfull with recommendations when planning our stay in Ucluelet. Upon arrival at the marina the condition and cleanliness of the boat was a welcome sight. Our Guide, Chris, was polite and super orginized, he definitley didn't waste any time-everything was ready to go! The gear was all high end and worked perfectly. And did I mention we caugt fish?? Chris is a fishing machine! He knows where the fish are and how to get them in the boat. Great experience with great people
