Dawn breaks over Ucluelet Harbour on Vancouver Island and the low rumble of a fishing charter boat wafts up from the dock. A bleary-eyed breakfast, a strong coffee and you're off to get some fish.
The Canadian Princess Resort is western Vancouver Island's premier sport fishing resort. The resort's fleet of fishing charter boats—powerful deep sea Delta cruisers and agile 20' Boston Whaler Outrages—get anglers to the day's most productive sport fishing grounds quickly, no matter where they are.
Outrages: when you're looking for something a little different
If you’re looking for a private charter with personalized service, get aboard one of our 20’ Boston Whaler Outrages for an unforgettable (and exciting) fishing experience off the west coast. Led by experienced and professional guides, these nimble boats can handle 2 – 3 guests on 8 hour trips.
The customization options are endless and Outrages can take you out to spots other boats can’t go to catch the fish on your list. They’re stocked with top-grade equipment like 150hp 4-stroke Yamaha motors and portable toilets. Knowledgeable guides acquaint you with the region and provide support to maximize your potential out on the water.
All of the other details are taken care of for you, including professional catch care with vacuum packing.
Deltas: a tried-and-true cruiser
The Canadian Princess' fishing charter fleet is made up of 43’ and 52’ Delta cabin cruisers taking 14 and 22 anglers, respectively.
Each cruiser is equipped with washrooms, heated cabins and a wrap-around deck that's ideal when you've got a high-energy Coho on the other end of your line. Each boat is crewed by a professional skipper and deckhand.
Fishing charter boats come totally tricked out for fishing with top quality mooching rods, single action or star drag reels and drift fishing lures.
Salmon, halibut and bottom fish
The waters off of Vancouver Island's west coast are packed with fish: salmon, halibut, lingcod, yellow eye and countless other bottom fish. When you charter a fishing trip with the Canadian Princess you can set the agenda, and target one or more species in a single trip.
The fish are here. What about you?
