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!!!

Had a fantastic time with my two kids and their Grandpa on the Harbour Tour. Saw lots of wildlife and learned a lot about Nanaimo! Craig was a great tour guide and we hope to try out the fishing tour next time we are in Nanaimo. A great time was had by all !!!

We booked the trip without ever having gone salmon fishing before. Expectations were high and the boys were very excited. After a beautiful drive to Browns Bay, we were off fishing. The guide, Craig, was excellent and extremely knowledgeable. We fished in a beautiful sheltered bay. This was a nice spot, it was windy but the fishing was great. At... More

We were in Nanaimo for a few days visiting family when I got the idea of going salmon fishing. I've caught trout, bass but no big fish, no salmon. Having heard glory stories from others and reading other tripadvisor member reviews of Central Island Adventure Tours regarding salmon fishing and how they caught their limit quickly, I was pretty excited....

A buddy and I came out to pay Craig a visit for a couple days of salmon fishing. We had some mixed weather but the fishing couldn't have been better. Local knowledge makes a big difference. We were easily limiting out while other boats seemed to be struggling to get a few fish in the boat. Central Island Adventure Tours... More

Craig from Central Island Adventure Tours took my brother, my dad, and myself on a day long fishing trip at Brown's Bay. The drive from Nanaimo to Brown's Bay wasn't short but it was definitely worth the time. We had a slow start, with few bites, but Craig knew the area quite well and by the end of the day... More

I went on the Harbor Tour and I would recommend it to any travelers coming through Nanaimo. I came to the Island to enjoy the ocean and Central Island Adventure Tours allowed me to do this for a very reasonable price. I would definitely come back and maybe even try my luck at a fishing trip.
