About Us

When we first started Bon Chovy Fishing Charters in 2005, we just wanted a way to get on the water as much as we could!   We bought a boat, did a few charters, and soon realized we were on to something!    In successive years, we built up our reputation, business and our fleet. In 2019, we are the biggest fishing charter company in Vancouver, BC and have the most up to date fleet in the area.  We are committed to our clients and  committed to salmon conservation.  We are leaders in salmon conservation and research in the sport fishing industry.
