Attention fisherman! This year we’ll be offering 6 hour “Deadliest Catch” type fishing tours on board the 42’ SeaKing Adventurer. The SeaKing Adventurer is both a licensed commercial fishing boat and a Coast Guard certified passenger vessel. Our exclusive daily service eliminates the expense and hassle of private charters. Recreational fisherman can now fish like pros in comfort and style!
The SeaKing Adventurer will supply pots, bait and gear for up to 16 fisherman. Each fisherman can fish 4 prawn pots and 2 crab traps for a limit of 4 crab and 5 lbs. of prawns. Current market value is around $15.00 per lb. for crab and $22.00 per lb. for prawns. You’ll also find other species in the traps including: flounder, spider crab, swimming scallops, cod, rock fish, giant pacific octopus, sea stars and sun stars. Pots will be colour coded for individual identification. In accordance with fishery regulations, each fisherman will be responsible for baiting, setting, removing and managing their pots … so prepare to get wet and dirty!
Next we’ll break out the rods and reels and head to the fishing grounds while the pots are soaking. The full wrap-around decks on the SeaKing Adventurer allow lots of room for salmon, halibut and rock fish mooching. Current market value is around $10.00 per lb. for salmon and $20.00 per lb. for halibut. Each fishermen is entitled to 1 halibut and 4 salmon. Fishermen can bring their own rods and gear but must use our traps because they’re designed for our hydraulic winch system.
After retrieving our pots we’ll head back to the docks to clean and process our seafood. We’ll supply bags but bring your own bucket or cooler if you want to bring live crabs home. No kitchen? Check out The Fish Store’s delicious options for cooking or steaming your catch for take home or dock-side dining. We can also arrange for custom smoking and canning.
The SeaKing Adventurer features a knowledgeable crew, heated cabin with complimentary hot coffee, chocolate and tea, washroom facilities and wheelchair accessibility. Fishing licenses are available for purchase on board. Participants must arrive half and hour before departure to receive safety and equipment instruction, process payment and identify gear.
