Went out with a couple of friends expecting to fish, and what we really ended up with was a trip, a tour, and an incredible experience to share! What started with fishing, with a highly knowledgable and friendly guide, turned into whale watching as 3 pods of orcas swam by, and a gray whale. Of course, we caught some fish as well, but more importantly we had a great time out on the water!

My wife and I and another couple were going to Victoria, Canada for vacation in August 2011. While looking on the internet for things to do in Victoria I noticed that there were a lot of fishing charters offered around Victoria. I picked D and D Fishing Charters and booked a one day fishing trip and were we glad we did. We had perfect weather and the boat was comfortable and had an inside private toilet. Our skipper Doug was personable and informative. We caught six salmon and had a great time.

My wife and I, plus another couple signed up to go fishing with Doug Ferrier, the owner of D&D Fishing Charters. Our decision, made from Southern California, was based on the contents of his website (www.danddfishingcharters.com)and the promise of warmth and cover if it got cold and wet while we were fishing. The indoor plumbing was also a draw for the women. We had a great time! We arrived on time (06:30 a.m.) and were quickly on our way. Doug made it clear to us that if the seas were rough we would not be going out, but our only issue was fog, which quickly cleared. What an experience! Beautiful sea state, wonderful weather and great fishing. All four of us caught at least one fish over 22 pounds! We caught a total of 6 big salmon in a half day. And, Doug was so helpful and full of tips for bringing the fish to the boat. Yes, the "big" one got away - the first fish that my buddy hooked got close to the boat but in the excitement of the moment, he forgot Doug's admonition to keep the pressure on but don't jerk the pole. Well, now our friend has a bent hook as a historical item but not his third fish! Don't worry, all of us learned from his experience and thanks to Doug's guidance we all came away saying that we will do it again. Thanks Doug.
