Departing Granville Island, we leave the sky scrapers behind and head up to Howe Sound to fish for winter chinook salmon. This great fishing is only a short boat ride from downtown Vancouver.


Had the best time fishing with this company. Very relaxed and the staff are extremely polite and helpful. Definelty booking again next time I come visit. Highly recommend. Thanks for making my holiday a blast Carly
Don't think my father or I will ever forget how much fun we had salmon fishing with Bon Chovy (Jason). Had to be the best day I've ever had fishing. Limited out on Spring (avg ~15-20lbs) Appreciate your skill and expertise out there on the water. These guys are pros. Thanks so much for making it such a great day.... Steven Wright
It would have been a good day without any fish, but getting two big Chinook made the day even better Mike M
