Vancouver is one of the few places in the world where you can catch salmon 365 days a year. VSFC offers salmon fishing charters every day of the year. Our salmon charters are professionally guided and include all the fishing gear. Our Granville Island location is within minutes from the heart of downtown Vancouver and close to consistent salmon fishing. With our large fleet of offshore ready boats, we are able to target salmon rich waters near Vancouver Island, Gulf Islands, Fraser River, Vancouver Harbour, and Howe Sound.
We are fortunate to have all five species of Pacific salmon transiting our local waters during the year. Our charters target strong migratory salmon runs in the summer and fall and healthy resident populations of feeding Chinook salmon in the winter and spring. Bottom fishing trips to the Gulf Island’s targeting Ling cod and Rock cod are available from May 1st to October 1st. Vancouver Harbour and Howe Sound are also very productive for Dungeness Crabs and Pacific Spot Prawns. Crab traps are dropped on every Vancouver fishing trip from December to late June. Prawn traps are dropped when we are fishing near productive spots or upon request.
With our close proximity to Vancouver Island and the neighbouring Gulf Island’s, we are able to offer multi day fishing packages that combine guided fishing with waterfront accommodation. Our charter packages leave from our Granville Island location and head to Vancouver Island, Bowen Island or Gabriola Island. These packages are perfect for a quick 2 or 3 day West Coast fishing experience and very convenient for locals and tourists.
Our charter fleet is comprised of three Grady White sport fishing vessels in the 23 to 30 foot range. They are ideally suited for fishing in the Vancouver area and provide our guests with a comfortable ride and stable fishing platform.
All of our vessels comply with Transport Canada specifications and are equipped with the latest navigation, sonar and fish finding equipment. Our guided fishing trips include only the highest quality fishing tackle including rods, reels, bait and lures.
