Vancouver is known around the world for its seafood, most notably its salmon. Every year, tourists flock to the west coast, partaking in scenic views and specialities, such as candied salmon – but what could be better than catching a live one? Chartered fishing boats offer a unique experience to both residents and visitors – to spend a day on the water, soaking up sun and catching fish in a safe environment. If you are looking to do more than tour city streets and unique restaurants, experts in the area, such as Hook and Sea Charters are offering up the experience of a lifetime.
Unlike other locations, Vancouver does not have an on/off switch to its fishing season. Mid-March to September might see the highest population rates but it is possible to fish for salmon 365 days a year. Although it is possible to cast a rod off of a pier and hope for the best, there are many advantages to choosing a chartered boat.
Expertise: Booking a chartered fishing experience means having access to a knowledgeable crew. There is more to fishing than knowing how to work the equipment. In order to get the best results for clients, it is important for guides to know the best local areas to find and catch fish. In an area like Vancouver, the weather can be unpredictable – particularly for visitors who are unfamiliar with the climate.
Equipment: Even those who are inexperienced in the world of fishing can succeed with the right guidance and the right tools. Excursions offer access to all of the equipment you could ever need to reel in a catch.
Safety: Any activity can be dangerous without the right experience. Choosing a reliable company means all the right safety equipment and training is right there waiting for you.
Stress Relief: Running around from place to place in order to maximize vacation time can be stressful. Instead of ending your trip needing a vacation from your vacation, spend a day relaxing. There is something cathartic about spending time outdoors, so take a load off and enjoy the trip!
