World Renowned Fishing Experience.

"We had a 6 hour trip, we hit our fish limit by 10:30! best trip ever!!"
"A Wonderful family adventure! Mark took our family of four out for a 4 hour fishing trip. We have two kids, ages 5 and 8, and it was their first time on a boat smaller than a ferry. I wasn't sure how they would do, but Mark tailored the trip so it was just perfect for them and we all had a great time.

It was definitely one of the big highlights of our vacation, and weeks later my 8 year old is still talking about the 17 pound chinook that she caught.

Mark was extremely professional and really great with the kids. I definitely recommend booking a trip with him!"
Marc is a very a professional fisher and also a good guide. We saw wildlife and a whale. One of the salmon we caught was barbecued by Mark on the boat. The trip is worth the money!
"Amazing day with Mark. We had a fantastic 8 hour journey with captain Mark. We are a family of 4 with little fishing experience and he made sure everybody was able to catch something. We caught a lot of salmon and a big halibut during the trip.

Mark is a true and kind hearted fisherman who REALLY knows his way around. It was a pleasure spending a day with him."
"Great experience, the boat is very clean and the captain is very professional, he knows his work."
