My recent fishing charter with Orest and company was everything I was hoping for plus more. From the fishing to the scenery he delivered. When the fish weren't biting Orest was relentless in his efforts to find another fishing spot or go after different fish or even try crabbing. I really liked the spaciousness and comfort his boat afforded. Another... More

My trip on the Oracle was outstanding, surrounded by good company and breathtaking views. Orest is very knowledgeable on the area and best fishing spots. We dropped our crab traps in the earlier afternoon and than spent the rest of the afternoon jigging (my favourite way to fish). As the sun started to set we picked up our full crab... More

We were looking for a relaxed, flexible fishing charter that would allow us to see the sights and still catch some fish and Orest delivered exactly that. Orest worked hard through some rough weather and slow fishing but by the second day we were into the salmon... More

Thanks Orest, A friend and I were looking for a trip by boat on the Alberny inlet… We went to the Habour master's Office, and they call Orest. It was 10 AM. At Midday Orest arrived, he had everything prepared even food. And we left for a marvelous trip, in a wonderful landscape. Seeing the floating logs pulled by tugs,... More

Thanks Orest, we had a real memorable time. Although I have fresh water fished you really made our first salt water salmon fishing trip memorable. Overnighting on the boat was a great way to kick it off. Must say from the time you walked on the boat we felt right at home. We are going to come back! Can`t say... More

I have lived in Port Alberni for some years now and never had the time until recently) to go fishing. So I called Orst from Alberni Charters and for a couple hundred dollars we could go out in his 30 or so foot boat. Had a nice time and interesting conversation. Caught a couple fish in an hour or so... More

We were eleven in total on our day trip with Alberni Charters. This is a flexible, family-friendly experience. The skipper Orest was completely devoted to ensuring that we had the best time possible. He is open to having children and our dogs on board. He took the time to adjust the fishing schedule to meet our needs and was determined... More
