My elderly father in law and I took a four hour fishing trip and utterly enjoyed every minute of our time from leaving the dock and arriving back hours later with fish in the boat. The entire trip was filled with friendly conversation, a learning experience via the wealth of knowledge captain Mike possesses in fishing, specifically the Nanoose area, and was an all over great day. I wholeheartedly recommend Haida Gold Ocean Adventures for any on the water activities they offer. Thank you to Mike and Kristi for arranging and fulfilling a wonderful trip we will never forget.

We had an absolutely fantastic fishing trip with Captain Mike. Kristi and Mike were great with working with us around the weather forecast and the trip out was great, even with a bit of wind and rain. Captain Mike helped us reel in some tremendous salmon and was a great coach for a couple of novices. We highly recommend Haida Gold.

Our group of six friends went out for a sunset cruise two nights ago and we had a marvelous time! The evening was perfect. We cruised up the coast north of Nanoose Bay and then anchored in a sheltered cove behind Ballenas Islands to have a snack and visit. Captain Mike timed the start of our return to coincide with the sunset setting behind the Vancouver Island mountains. We returned to Schooner cove just as darkness fell and we could see the lights twinkling in the harbour. We highly recommend this trip!

What a great way to spend a summer evening. We (six adults) got together a picnic supper and Captain Mike took us out for a two and a half hour cruise around the islands off Nanoose. The whole experience was very enjoyable, not least because Captain Mike himself was an interesting and very personable 'host' as well as being a competent captain. He stopped the boat just off the Ballenas Islands and we enjoyed the peace and quiet, as well as a stunning sunset, which lasted most of the homeward journey.
