Breakaway Day Trips

Fish away, and have lunch at a remote lodge or marina. Stretch your legs, check out the lay of the land, and have a nice lunch. Not too long though, the water calls. The choice of location for the lunch break will depend on the season and the fish patterns.

$1200 for 8hrs fishing plus approx hour lunch time. Custom trips with extra touring, negotiable according to distance.

Exploration Cruise

A real get-away.  Perfect for the privacy you might be looking for these days.

Have the best combination of a cruise and fishing and lovely semi-remote accommodations.  Experience our sheltered coastal back country up close.  

Travel with just your own partner, or family, or friends. Breath deep and relax in the clean air . Have your own space at a remote lodging.

Begin at Campbell River or Quadra Island and spend an overnight or two at a remote lodge.

Get the full experience in the sheltered back country channels where the ocean meets the mountains. We can circle around islands, so you return on a different route than you went out on.

You can fly easily into Campbell River and we’ll take you from there. Or arrive by car.

You often get a choice of lodging according to your style and budget. Location choices for away trips will be influenced by the salmon’s life calendar. Really a wonderful cruise, without the cruise ship. Shore accommodation choices range from comfortable to luxurious.

Price will vary with details.  Let’s plan this to be just right for you.
