Your reservation coordinator can advise which fishing trips are included in your package. Please confirm your fishing times upon arrival at the resort.
We encourage all guests who are not on a package to pre-book their fishing before arrival to ensure the availability of preferred fishing times.
Fish will be cleaned, packed in strong plastic bags and refrigerated during your stay with us by our Vancouver Island Fishing resort staff. If you would like to have your catch canned or smoked, we can deliver your it to the cannery for a reasonable cost. The cannery will forward it directly to you after processing. Fish boxes and gel packs are available for transport for a small extra charge at the resort. We recommend that guests driving home bring a cooler for their catch.
If you are flying from the resort, our crew will clean, bag, label and refrigerate your fish, and it will arrive back in Vancouver with you, cold and fresh. Guests are responsible to care for their fish after arrival in Vancouver. Insulated boxes are available for purchase at the South Terminal in Vancouver.
There is a nominal fish cleaning charge for optional afternoon fishing charters.
Traveller’s cheques, Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Interac (debit cards) are welcome. We regret we cannot accept personal cheques at the resort
While we fully expect to adhere to our set activity and transportation schedules, please be aware that they are subject to change due to sea and weather conditions over which Oak Bay Marine Group has no control. You can check the current conditions on our Weather & Marine Forecast web page.
