Ocean Explorer Sportfishing


This resort is currently closed.

For a unique sportfishing vacation, explore the heart of British Columbia's Coastal wilderness aboard the Ocean Explorer 1, a 110 foot fishing vessel dedicated to tracking the best salmon runs of the season. Operating during the summer months along the famous Inside Passage, we locate and anchor at the hottest spots from Port Hardy to Prince Rupert. And this is where you'll be staying! Our on board fleet includes 2 fully rigged top-of-the-line fishing boats and 3 fishing skiffs to take you from our anchorage out to our meticulously mapped out private honey holes.

What makes this deep sea fishing adventure unique? For one, your accommodations are aboard a fully equipped fishing vessel, or floating lodge if you will, where you'll bunk in your own private stateroom. Second, our secluded location can only be reached by float plane, encompassing you within BC's most beautiful and natural environment. As well, there are no other boats, so we don't wait in line to leave our port, nor to dock; our private location insures that, for the most part, it's just us, the sea and the fish of course! And lastly, with room for just 9 guests, a shared schedule, and a community dining area, Ocean Explorer Sportfishing brings fisherman together for more than just a great fishing story.

Whether you are after trophy Chinook salmon, Northern Coho, king-size halibut, Dungeness crab, Jumbo prawns, lingcod or Red Snapper, you let us know and we will do our best to locate the areas where you'll hook your 'lunker.'

Our professional staff and guides can accommodate any level of fisher; from beginner level instructions and completely guided fishing to expert advice and direction. Your sport fishing experience on the Ocean Explorer will be second to none.

Bring along your mate or your kids for an exceptional sportfishing family adventure; we've got other activities besides fishing to keep them busy. Two double kayaks are at your disposal anytime to explore the bays and inlets surrounding our anchorages. With a little notice, one of our crew members would be more than happy to guide an excursion where you'll have a chance to view whales, sea lions, dolphins, eagles and countless sea birds. Take a leisurely soak in the top deck hot tub or unwind in our spacious lounge and treat your taste buds to snacks made fresh by our onboard executive chef.
