The new way to fish Ucluelet, British Columbia!
Ucluelet is located at the northern entrance to Barkley Sound and is one of our favourite spots to wet our lines. The offshore banks are highly productive for Chinook, Coho, and Halibut throughout our rental season and there is easy access to the protected waters of Barkley Sound should the weather become unpleasant. We really like the unpretentious, laid back, feel of Ucluelet and we think you will too.
Check out the Ucluelet Chamber of Commerce website for information regarding accomodations, dining, and activities in the area.
We rent out the kind of salmon fishing boats that WE want to fish from. These are really nice boats that are built to handle the west coast of Vancouver Island. Our boats are fully equipped with the latest engines and electronics to make your fishing vacation a pleasure. Check out our growing rental fleet of fishing boats.
How it works:
Our boats live on trailers and can be easily be transported virtually anywhere on Vancouver Island from our base in Port Alberni.
Our boats are located in Port Alberni which is about 100 km (1.5 hours by road) from Ucluelet. There are two ways to get our boats to Ucluelet:
- Towing: If you have a towing vehicle then you are more than welcome to pickup a boat in Port Alberni and then tow your rental boat to Ucluelet.
- By Water: Ucluelet is a relatively easy 45 mile run by water up Alberni Inlet and then through the protected islands of Barkley Sound. These are beautiful, well protected, waters and the trip can be accomplished in around 1.5 to 2 hours. Moorage is readily available in Ucluelet.
Our ideal clients:
Our ideal clients are moderately experienced fishermen who don’t own a boat, don’t want to hire a fishing guide or fishing charter operation, and want to fish for Salmon and Halibut in the waters of Ucluelet BC. Our clients would rather run the boat and call the shots. In other words, our ideal clients are a lot like us: Guys that love fishing and boats but can’t justify the expenses or hassles associated with owning a “west coast capable” fishing boat.
We believe that our rental rates represent excellent value for your fishing dollar. We are significantly less expensive that guided fishing charters and MUCH less expensive than owning your own boat! Check out our very reasonable rental rates.
