Fishing

At Deep Coast Charters we offer fully guided private fishing adventures, you will be able to experience world class Salmon fishing in a matter of minutes once we depart from the dock. We take pride in providing the best experience possible out on the water. Our boat, the Overdew is rigged and ready to fish. Enjoy your fishing experience with well-maintained rods and reels. We only use quality fishing gear and all our charters include tackle, bait and ice on board.

During your charter we target Pacific Salmon, we like to think that Salmon fishing is one of the most exciting forms of sport fishing. Once you see that tug on the rod, you will be hit with a wave of excitement and then a rush of adrenaline. While onlookers await the moment where you are finally holding that beauty in your hands. Between all catch opportunities, you will be fishing amongst the most pristine and breathtaking areas on the B.C. coast.

We offer half and full day charters, with departures in the morning or afternoon. We can comfortably accommodate up to 6 passengers on our Vessel. During a full day charter you will have an opportunity to set and collect traps for Dungeness Crab and famous BC Spot Prawns when in season.

We understand that many recreational anglers are becoming more conservation minded, at Deep Coast we work to help sustain biodiversity conservation. We do encourage catch and release for all our sport fishing charters to ensure the conservation of species for future generations.

Our experienced and skilled guides make the best teachers, so don’t worry if this is your first-time fishing. Our job is to ensure that every guest on board feels engaged, included, educated and gets “hooked” on fishing. All we ask if that you get ready to enjoy a great day out on the water, creating memories with your friends and family, soaking up the astonishing views of Howe Sound.

Sightseeing

The pristine waters of Átl’ḵa7tsem /Howe Sound showcases some of the most incredible coast line British Columbia has to offer, and notably so has recently been designated as a UNESCO Biosphere. Howe Sound is home to more than 650 different species of fish and invertebrates.

There are many notable points of reference during a sight seeing tour from Porteau Cove, Defense Islands, Potlatch Creek, Ekins Point, McNab Estuary to Pam Rocks where you can experience the rich habitats in biodiversity above and below the water. Pam Rocks will never disappoint, from Sea Lions and/or Seals sunbathing on the rocks, to many protected species of birds, sea stars, anemones and sponges.

During a sightseeing tour you will enjoy some of the most spectacular scenery and learn about the many protected species that inhabit Howe Sound. Such as the once thought to be long extinct – glass sponge reefs. These ancient delicate filter feeding animals not only help store carbon and fertilize the ocean, they also provide vital habitat to a wide range of marine animals including endangered rockfish. One small glass sponge reef has been discovered in Alaska, but other than that they are found nowhere else in the world but British Columbia.

Over the last decade we have seen a resurgence of marine life again, from school of Herring which are an important food source for cetaceans such as Humpback and Killer Whales, Porpoises and Dolphins, sea lions, seals and many seabirds. You could be lucky enough to encounter any one of these during your charter adventure.

A sightseeing tour is for the people who want to get out on the water but aren’t eager to fish. Howe Sound has so much to offer with its remarkable coastline, scenic coastal mountains and if you are lucky you may have an opportunity to see Killer Whales or Porpoises on your private charter.
