Fishing Charters from Sidney/Gulf Island's/Vancouver Island BC

Bon Chovy Fishing Charters is pleased to have a great fishing option on Vancouver Island.   Based in Sidney, we are fortunate to have access to salmon fishing 365 days of the year.    We can do pick ups on all of the Southern Gulf Island's!!    We are very close to Saltspring Island, Galiano Island, Mayne Island, and Saturna Island!


In addition to the year round fishing opportunities, Sidney is home to one of the warmest climates in Canada, and some of the CALMEST waters in British Columbia.   Some of our most consistent and enjoyable salmon fishing is in the winter and spring!   Check out this video we shot in the winter with our good friends at     It shows how good our Sidney winter fishing charters can be!!   

Located on Southern Vancouver Island, only 25 minutes from downtown Victoria, we are fortunate to have access to consistent salmon fishing 365 days of the year. We are among the most experienced guides on the coast and our boats are rigged to fish local waters.

Beautiful Sidney British Columbia

Sidney is a remarkable destination in Southern British Columbia. With the warmest climate in Canada, stunning natural beauty, and some of the calmest waters in British Columbia, salmon fishing with Bon Chovy is a year round affair.  In fact, some of our best salmon fishing is in the winter months! 

Based out of the Port Sidney Marina, our fishing trips have easy access to the Southern Gulf Island’s as well as Georgia and Haro Straits.  Our fishery is consistent and we have the ability to target salmon every day of the year. When in season we do target bottomfish, specifically the great eating LING COD.  We have some very productive bottomfishing grounds very close to our Sidney Fishing Charter dock.  In addition to the sport fishing, we often set traps for spot prawns and Dungeness crabs, especially in the winter and spring. 

If you are looking for a calm fishing destination that is a short ferry ride from Vancouver or a 25 minute drive from Victoria, look no further than a  fishing trip in Sidney with Bon Chovy!   We have salmon fishing opportunities every day of the year and seasonal opportunities for ling cod, dungeness crabs and spot prawns!
