Making Memories for Life

Home: Welcome


Come experience the thrill of fishing on BC's rugged coast. Northwest BC Fishing Charters offer summer charters out of the Cow Bay Marina in Prince Rupert BC from May until September. Winters are spent chartering out of Vancouver from September until late April. Prince Rupert is a quaint BC town with a rich history based on the abundance of fish in it's coastal waters. With water teeming with fish it is truly one of the last frontiers of sport fishing. Whether you are an old salty or a new angler our aim is to give you an experience you will never forget.

What to expect?
Expect to leave the dock early on a 2020 Kingfisher 2825 Coastal Express to take advantage of a full day of action. This Kingfisher is designed for fishing with a huge 11' rear deck and higher gunnels for saftey. It is not uncommon to see all manner of sea life while targeting Salmon, Halibut, Lingcod, Rockfish and Crab.
What to bring?
Everyone (including kids) needs a hard copy of a fishing licence with a salmon stamp. For comfort bring appropriate rain gear and layers of clothing and footwear to keep your feet dry. We have a heated cabin and an on board toilet for your convenience. Bring snacks, lunch and refreshments as you will get hungry on the water. If bringing alcohol please drink responsibly. A cooler is always handy to transport your catch after returning to dock. If prone to Sea Sickness a trip to the pharmacy would be advised. 
What we provide?
For comfort we provide inflatable lifejackets for adults and all required saftey equipment. Regular life jackets for kids but you may want to bring your own. All tackle is provided with all new rods and reels for 2022! We feature top of the line Amundson and Avet reels and rods. Fish will be cleaned and ready for the processor or transport.

Haeden Swirski

Haeden started his guiding career fishing out of a well known lodge in Campbell river on an 18 foot Boston Whaler but soon headed for bigger waters on the Northern BC Coastline. A little town tucked 45 mins away from south east Alaska called Prince Rupert caught his eye with the promise of bigger fish. After Captaining a 25 foot Robalo, a 26 foot Grady White and a 26 foot Weldcraft he now takes the helm of a 2825 Kingfisher. Haeden is an avid sport fisherman who lives to fish and loves to share his passion with his guests. When he is not chasing Chrome on the ocean you will find him hunting for Steelhead in British Columbia's Rivers. Haeden's up beat attitude and passion for the sport really shines through which makes him great with kids and beginner anglers alike.
