Other Activities in Prince Rupert, BC

If you’d like to take a break to fishing, there’s plenty more to do — both on and off the boat.

You can bring your kayak along for the ride, and paddle along the coastline for a nice quiet experience with nature. Along the way, you can scour nearby beaches for hidden treasures by going on some beachcombing expeditions.

Also, be sure to bring your camera along. The scenery is incredible, especially when the sun is setting. There are also plenty of opportunities to take pictures of eagles, herons, sea lions and, once in a while, bears.

Catch the limit

Fishing Trip, Salmon Fishing

The size of fish on the North Coast of B.C. is unparalleled.Whether you’re after unbeatable salmon fishing, halibut fishing, crab, shrimp, or prawns, you’ll probably reach your limit. You also don’t have to worry about whether your fish are too big for the quota, because the fishing limits are based on heads, not weight.

On your fishing trip around  the North Coast, you’ll enjoy the freshest of seafood, comfortable quarters, and a large deck fishing area. Our recent record catches were a 58-pound spring salmon and a halibut weiging in at over 200 pounds!

Fishing charter boats in northern BC

Prince Rupert

Set amidst stunning scenery, where tree-carpeted mountains rise suddenly from the Pacific Ocean, Prince Rupert has evolved into one of the best hubs for charter fishing on the west coast of British Columbia. The abundant fishing grounds of Chatham Sound, Dundas Island and Work Channel are just a short boat ride away, so the city is used as a starting point by a large portion of the charter fishing industry.

Prince Rupert’s harbour is the third-deepest natural ice-free harbour in the world, which has brought a lot of industry to the city; along the lively waterfront are canneries, terminals for raw-material shipment, and a container port. It also features all the amenities of the big city, including great restaurants, a variety of retail stores, and a world-class museum.

As a transportation hub, Prince Rupert is the most convenient destination to begin your fishing charter. You can decide to take a short boat ride to the nearby fishing spots, or you can use the city as a starting point on your way to Haida Gwaii.

Haida Gwaii

Once called the “Queen Charlotte Islands,” this blade-shaped archipelago off the coast of Northern B.C. has been officially renamed “Haida Gwaii” — or, “Place of the People” in the local Haida language.

While on our tours, you’ll be surrounded by some of the most beautiful scenery in the world in Northern B.C. Along the verdant coastlines, you’ll see 1,000 year-old trees. You may also see bears, bald eagles, seals, sea lions, killer whales, and humpback whales.

If you’d like to take a break from fishing, you can spend a day beachcombing for treasures, then relax for an evening under the Northern Lights. We can also make arrangements to visit local Haida villages as well.


Located north of Prince Rupert in Observatory Inlet, Anyox was once a bustling mining town in the early 20th century. When copper prices dropped during the Great Depression, the town’s population shrank to nothing; by the 1940s, Anyox had become one of the many ghost towns that dot the landscape of British Columbia.

Today, only a few rusted shells of buildings remain as memories of what the town used to be. However, there have mineral explorations in the area, as well as discussions into refurbishing a nearby dam that had been used to power the mine.

Commercial Marine Charters can take you to this area, which features stunning scenery and calm waters. And, of course, there’s also great fishing in the area, from giant prawns to king crab to big salmon.
