Just got back to Texas from a salmon fishing charter with D&D Charters. We have been on a few charters in Texas and Florida but this charter was indeed the BEST fishing experience for our family. Doug is very professional, knowledgeable, detailed and meticulous in his outings which makes everything flow smoothly. We have never salmon fished before but if you LISTEN to his detailed instructions, you too will also catch your limit! We had 15 hits and once we got the hang of it caught our limit of each one weighing 15 - 24lbs each!! The fishing boat and equipment are in excellent condition and it was so nice to have a heater on board as the fog had come in and made it for a rather chilly morning. Oh, and the boat has a restroom on board too...very nice. On our way back to the dock, we pulled up the crab bins and had some great size crabs to take with us. Doug cleaned and fillet the fish and entertained us while he fed the seals and seagulls the "extras"; nothing wasted! He also provided us with information on the different kinds of salmon we caught and gave us some great cooking tips! We did a few things during our stay in BC but this trip with D&D Charters will remain the highlight of the trip! Thank you Doug, for teaching us how to fish for "Texas-size salmon" in BC. It was truly a wonderful experience!

My friend Chris, from Philadelphia and I , went with Doug for two days and had an amazing time. Doug was entertaining and very professional. His boat and equipment were in excellent condition and it was a pleasure to fish with him. The toilet was spotless.

We caught at least ten salmon over two days, several over twenty pounds , and Doug was both a great guide and a patient teacher

I have fished with many guides and Doug was the best

We had a friend from Sooke around this charter for us, and he recommended D & D as the expert in the area. With a recommendation like that, we couldn't, and didn't, go wrong. Doug was an awesome captain. He had everything set up and ready to go in the morning, even though we showed up a little early and we were soon on the water with lines in. Fish are unpredictable but we had a good day. Several bites and attempted scores :-( but did get a couple reeled in also. Doug is professional, knowledgeable, and friendly. He told stories about the area and the people and was fairly engaging.
After he filleted the fish for us and recommended where to go to process them as we were on motorcycles and continuing our road trip so no fear over what to do with the fish. It was all handled.
The boat itself was one of the larger boats I saw on the water. It is very comfortable complete with bathroom and heated cabin which we did not need.
Very good day.

My wife and I went on a charter with DandD charters and had a blast.
The boat is big,clean and very comfortable with a washroom as well inside for the woman and has a heated cabin as well.
Guide was very knowledgable and polite and had us into fish in no time at all.
I will recommend this charter to my friends and family , the fish were cleaned and bagged and the crabs were cleaned as well, all we needed to do was start cooking.
Our trip consisted of setting crab traps and halibut fishing.
Got our limit on both:)
We are going back later this year for salmon.

We went out today April 4th, 2013 on a charter with Doug. It proved to be an experience that will be repeated, Doug is an excellent guide that knows the area like the back of his hand. We fished for Halibut and caught our limit and then switched to springs, though no springs where caught we enjoyed the trip. We highly recommend D and D Fishing charters.
