    Curtis Smith and Coastal Wilderness Adventures are the best guide and guided fishing business in and around
    Campbell River and probably the best on Vancouver Island. Curtis provided 4 days of salmon fishing, all ocean fishing. In addition to himself, he provides a wonderful boat, all the equipment and a wonderful experience in a safe and friendly environment. We have fished with Curtis once or twice a year excluding Covid-19 pandemic years when the border was closed, for the better part of over a decade.
    We will continue to fish with Curtis as often as possible in the future.

    We were in Campbell River and booked this trip at the last minute. Rick gave us the opportunity to fish chinook and coho salmon, even though it is not the season yet, because he is participating in a research project. We caught a few of each, measured them, tagged them and released them. It was a fantastic experience. Campbell River is a beautiful place, the weather was perfect and Rick was incredibly generous with his time and his knowledge. We were very impressed with his ability to read the water and follow bait around. Highly recommended.

    10/10 experience! Been on a few charters before but had the most fun and most fish with Chris! Will not book with a different charter company again. So many great views and a truly experienced guide who clearly loves being on the water. Chris felt like one of the family.

    My husband and I were booked out of Browns' Bay with Laurel's charter. It was an amazing experience!! It was the first time we ever fished with Laurel. He showed up on time and while we have lots of experience salmon fishing, he was the first guide to show us how to "set the hook" after the fish was on the line! He provided us with pointers and helped us along the way. We went out for 2 - eight hour trips, and caught 9 fish (chinook, pink, chum, and a BLUE ling cod). 8 hours went by quickly as Laurel is a very easy person to chat with and we had some good laughs!! His boat is in great condition and is very comfortable!! We are booking with him again next year and have recommended him to our friends!!

    Cory knows his way around the area extremely well and tells many super interesting stories. We will call Blackbeard Fishing Charters next time we want to get into some great fishing. Loved his music selection as well. Always felt safe and caught large fish and lots of keepers. Cory is a Great Guide and highly recommended.

    Exceeded expectations once again! You will not find a better guide in Campbell River. Gary always tailors the trip to what you are looking for. We extended our trip to 3 days this year and we were in the fish all 3 days. Each day was better than the first. Gary makes every day a great one on the water and we are so grateful we have been able to go out with him over the last several years. This year he recommended we take a fresh catch to the Riptide to be prepared by the chef. It was an amazing meal. We are looking for to next year. Many Thanks J&K W

    We had a fabulous time and got some nice fish

    We fished in Mid/Late August and had a great experience. Robert is an extremely knowledgeable fishing expert. He expertly navigated the boat, the downriggers, and the various lures. We caught a nice variety of salmon and were able to keep several.

    If you want a successful fishing experience, I recommend that you book with Fred and Fish with Robert.

    What an exhilarating day! Captain Royce and Jerry provided a wonderful fishing experience for the whole family. Their knowledge and patience helped us catch our large Chinook salmon. Love trying out the knuckle buster reel. Thank you for a memorable day Northwest Saltwater Adventures!

    Finally after 3 years (Covid) we did our trip at 50North Adventures. We did a lot of "homework" before choosing whom we were going to do the Whales trip with. Well It was awesome! We saw the Whales! Dean is an excellent "driver". His boat is very nice and you can see he loves and respect the whales! Not a boot full of people and that was what we wanted! If you want an excellent guide, not many people on the tour than you have to go with Dean! Thanks Joep and Chantal

    Wow. We weren’t too sure what to expect but we were all blown away by Mark and this experience. He took us, a group of 10 (4 seniors, 3 adults, and 3 kids aged 13, 11, and 7) with ease. We took three boats in total and Mark and his team (Travis and Russel) were professional, knowledgeable, friendly, and genuine—everything you want and need in a guide + more!!! Mark made a fan for life in my 7 year old nephew with many laughs, good times, and fun had by all.

    We were fishing for Salmon, Mark showed us a Dogfish (small shark) which was a big winner with the kids.

    Thank you so much Mark—the way you could tailor the experience to suit a 7 year old, a 68 year old, and everyone in between was just incredible.

    Can’t recommend this experience enough. If I could give six stars I would. BEST. EXPERIENCE. EVER.

    What a terrific trip! Gene makes everything easy and easy to customize. We spent two days in the salt water with Ryan and one day fly fishing with Justin. Both guides were exceptional--patient, professional, enthusiastic, and very skilled. And Gene holds it all together making co-ordination clear and easy. The whole vibe of the place is "Just let us know what you're up for and we're game. Wanna drop some crab traps? Sure! Change species? Easy. Hunt for a new place to fish? Of course.

    I've done a decent amount of fishing in various places, and these guys are absolutely among the very best. For all of them It's much more about having a great experience than maniacal meat hunting. We had a terrific time and still got limits or close to them. Basically perfect.

    Already looking forward to going back.

    Fishing is always a great way to spend a bit of money and have a lot of fun. Ray managed to find us a few fish to take home and we were lucky enough to see some whales some sea lions and a couple seals. The boat is well equipped and he communicated with other guides to find out what was happening in different areas to try and up the game on us landing at keeper.. I would recommend him as a great way to spend a day on the water in Campbell River

    We had a half day fishing trip on 17 September with Rick.

    The whole experience was brilliant and we felt really well looked after throughout. Right from the start with the booking, Rick was very responsive to our questions and provided helpful information on fishing licenses, preparation for the day, etc.

    Rick's easy going, patient and encouraging. His knowledge and experience really shone through. He taught us the reeling technique, making sure that we all got involved in the fun and that we're the ones to reel in the catches ourselves. Even though we are novices, we managed to catch 3 Coho and 1 Chinook as well as a couple of ling cods that we released, which is all down to Rick's guidance. We had a truly wonderful time fishing with Rick, not only leaving with some beautiful salmon (which Rick helpfully cleaned and prepped for us) but a sense of achievement!

    We would definitely want to go fishing with Rick again when we visit Vancouver Island next time!

    Had a great trip fishing in Campbell River! Kevin was a great captain. He has excellent knowledge of the water and where to find the fish. Our whole family, kids included, reeled in a few fish each. Came home with beautiful fish and smiles. Great family adventure! Would highly recommend.
