Welcome to Captain Ron’s Fishing Adventures

Fishing Adventures (6 to 7 hours)

New & Exclusive in 2020!

  • PASSENGER CLASS FISHING VESSEL
  • CATCH FRESH LOCAL SEAFOOD
  • TRAP CRAB, PRAWNS AND SHRIMP
  • FISH SALMON, HALIBUT, ROCKFISH AND MORE

Attention fisherman! This year we’ll be offering 6 to 7 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 12 fishermen. Each fisherman can fish 4 prawn pots and 2 crab traps for a limit of 4 crab and 200 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 deck on the SeaKing Adventurer allows lots of room for salmon, halibut and rock fish mooching. Each fisherman is entitled to 1 halibut and 2 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 and leave it in your vehicle if you want to bring live crabs home.

The SeaKing Adventurer features a knowledgeable crew, heated cabin with complimentary hot coffee, bottled water, soft drinks and washroom facilities. Participants must arrive half an hour before departure to receive safety and equipment instruction, process payment and identify gear.

With the increased public interest and awareness in local food and produce, this affordable excursion will provide tourists and locals with the opportunity to personally catch fresh, local seafood. Offering multiple fisheries on each tour greatly increases the chances for success. The 6 to 7 hour expedition will cost $250.00 per person for non-members (including traps, rods, bait, etc) so passengers can expect excellent food value in return for their fare.
