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 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!

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

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 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 was an excellent captain, very impressed especially being my first time out. Caught nice size halibut and salmon, including a 30lb tyee! I will be booking with Hot Pursuit Charters again, thanks for the fish and the fun.

Had a great few days out with captain Chris! We hit two species over two days. My friend tied into a nice tyee! I caught the biggest Hali I've ever had at 37 pounds. We had to do some moving around but Chris kept us on the fish. Felt confident the whole trip with him in charge.

we had the three day all inclusive trip that was a trip of a lifetime for my son and I. Staff were friendly, knowledgeable and easy going in spite of Covid. The lodge was spectacular and Luke our guide tried hard to fill our limit. Didn"t make it but that was because we caught to many that were not keepers. Two nice Hailbut,2 salmon, some cod,bass and others.
Meals were super good and rooms very comfortable. Campfire on the deck every evening.
Saw sea otters, eagles seals, humming birds and a glimpse of whale tails entering the water.

It’s unfortunate that you felt the need to be malicious when leaving this review especially when our company went out of the way to accommodate. You had a 2 day charter booked with us and after the first day you complained about the weather so even though it contradicted our date change policy we moved your second day to a later date. That date you then cancelled 2 days later. As I have said to other people it is the FISHING guides job to get you on the fish and help you have success in landing those fish. Sometimes we are so involved in getting fish on your line it may seem like we are not interested in conversation. It sounds like maybe a wildlife cruise with more of an interactive atmosphere is more what you are looking for. I have spoken with your guide and he is also quite surprised at this review since during conversations that day it was discovered that you both knew quite a few of the same people and that you left a decent tip as well. With all that being said customer satisfaction is important to us so look us up next time you are in Ucluelet and we will get you out on a complimentary wildlife cruise. Shawn Grant
