You won't just drop a line and twiddle your thumbs while on a fishing charter in Vancouver– island hopping, spotting sea life and taking in incredible views are all part of the adventure.
My favorite charter company, Bites-On, lets you: fish for all the different varieties of BC salmon (Chinook, Coho, Pink, Sockeye and Chum), drop crab traps like in the Deadliest Catch (I was amazed at the number of dungeness that filled the cage) and slow down to enjoy the view. Along the way you'll see downtown Vancouver and Stanley Park from the water. And if you're lucky you'll also come across harbour seals, eagles and maybe even porpoises, sea lions and Orcas (killer whales)!
This experience is great for so many kinds of travelers and will truly entertain everyone in a group. Their port is on the Bayshore West Marina (on the West side of the Westin Bayshore Resort) and just 2 minutes from downtown.
