How We Compare to Fishing Resorts and Fishing Lodges in BC
You will likely will catch more fish with us than with fishing lodges or fishing resorts!
Convenience, Amenities, and Savings
Fishing resorts and lodges often fly you in to fish. With us, you can drive to the destination and make the trip part of your larger vacation. Just as with resorts and lodges, we offer fishing packages that include resort accommodation, fishing, fish cleaning and vacuum packing, and also one amazing fresh seafood dinner. You get this, plus personal service and experienced fishing guides, all for less cost. (Most resorts have a high turnover rate, which means less-experienced guides).
Comfort on the Water
At most fishing resorts or fishing lodges, you fish from 15-18ft boats. With Salmon Eye Charters, you get experienced guides, with 25-29 ft boats. Our boats are all covered and offer toilets, so there are no painful moments waiting to get back to the dock.
At Salmon Eye Charters, you'll have a relaxing schedule compared to a fishing resort. We usually leave the dock around 6 a.m. and get back around 2 p.m. If you think that's not enough fishing time, don't worry! We usually have action-packed fishing and by the time you return your arms will be sore from all the reeling.
Plenty of Fish
Ucluelet has not seen the decline of fish stocks that has affected other areas around British Columbia and Alaska. We are still going strong. If you want to fill your tub, we are the people to fish with. We are just a short trip across Vancouver Island – a few hours and then you are into some beautiful fishing.
You can go offshore or fish the protected waters of Barkley Sound and enjoy some incredible scenery. After fishing, you can relax on the deck with an ocean view, dine at one of the nearby restaurants, or visit the many local beaches.
After one visit, we think you'll agree that fishing with Salmon Eye Charters, out of Ucluelet, BC, is one of the best salmon and halibut fishing experiences out there!
