I went out for a day's fishing with my Dad and brother last Friday, and between the three of us we ended up landing 12 fish by 1pm, all of which were either hatchery/wild coho salmon along with a large chum salmon as well. The lines were pretty much getting bites the entire trip due to the coho run, and Doug definitely knew how to adjust the depths for the best results. We ended up having to take about 8 of the fish up to our freezer at Whistler simply due to a lack of space at home! Can't recommend this tour enough, we will be back sometime in future I'm sure.

Dealing with D&D Fishing Charters was an amazing experience from booking to leaving the wharf after our trip. The boat is very comfortable and safe. Doug is an awesome guide and although fishing was slow the day we were out, as it was for all other boats in the area, he made the trip fun with his whitty conversation, jokes and showing us some of his tricks on how to fish which ultimately led to a nice 21 lb Chinook. We highly recommend D&D Fishing and will be looking to return for another trip next season!

Doug was an excellent guide. Of all the boats out on the water the day we went, we caught the most fish. His boat is very comfortable and there was plenty of room for our group of four. We enjoyed the views, the fishing, and talking with our guide. Highly recommend D and D, we will be booking again for a second trip in October.

I booked my trip with Doug after viewing his website (www.danddfishingcharters.com) and getting good feedback to some follow up communication. Based on what I had seen and heard, my expectations were high and Doug met them with ease. He picked me up from our dock at 6:00 am on a beautiful sunny August day and we set off to make the most of the two periods of slack water over the 8 hour trip. Although the fishing started a bit slowly, things picked up and it wasn't too long before the fish started hitting the deck with the highlight being a solid 28lb Chinook that battled hard. Doug is a great guide who is more than willing to teach you the intricacies of Salmon fishing if that's what you want. His boat is definitely one of the better ones I have fished from and all of the gear is top notch. Thanks Doug for a great day - see you next year for some Halibut.

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!
