I took my son fishing with captain Craig on the weekend and we had an awesome experience. Craig was professional, courteous, and most important he put us on the fish. I would strongly recommend this charter for anyone seeking a salmon fishing charter in the Nanaimo area.

We had an excellent tour with Craig, we selected a more sight seeing trip as opposed to straight up fishing, and it was so much fun, we dropped crab traps, collected oysters, had lunch at Salt Spring, and watched a pod of Orcas roll right under the boat, memories to last a lifetime for sure. Craig was timely, pleasant, helpful... More

We had an awesome experience with Criag! He was very friendly and easy going. We got one 16 pound salmon and hauled up some crab pots which he put out earlier and had a great feed of crab as well. Over all great experience and would recommend Craig to anyone!

Last August, the three of us decided on a spur of the moment tour of the waters near Nanaimo. We set up the time over the phone and the next day, we were out on the water enjoying ourselves. The guide was knowledgeable and friendly. He was from our home town but had lived in Nanaimo these past 20 years.... More

Went for a two hour tour with Craig. Was very knowledgeable and informative about all the islands. Had lots of time to stop and take in all the wonderful sites of the harbour area! Would go again in a heartbeat and recommend it to everyone!

I grew up on the island and of course fished the island. My personal experiences are unforgettable. That being said, there was an opportunity to take my adult son and my adult two grandsons (San Diego,CA) salmon fishing. The intention was to provide them with the essence of my fishing memories. After the introductions, paperwork, and safety orientation were off... More

We went out with Craig for a four hour Salmon trip this past weekend. We really enjoyed our time on the water. Craig was really friendly and knowledgeable. We were able to keep four fish that we caught and we had to throw a few back. We would definitely go again! Thanks Craig!!

Craig took us out salmon fishing May 24,2012 and we had such a great time. Craig is very professional, knowledgable and very friendly. He made us feel very comfortable out on the ocean. We caught a 22.5 lb and an 18 lb Chinook salmon, so much fun!! We would recommend Craig for you next fishing adventure!!!
