Welcome to ABCharters, Ucluelet, on the West Coast of Vancouver Island, BC

Your Salmon and Halibut Fishing Specialists.

ABCharters is located in the protected Ucluelet Small Craft Harbour directly behind the the Canadian Princess. All salmon and halibut fishing gear is supplied. We clean and ice your fish to preserve the taste and quality. Please bring adequate coolers for transporting your salmon and halibut. Please see our current Rates.

Your salmon and halibut fishing charter begins in the harbour of Ucluelet which is located in the heart of Pacific Rim National Park. ABCharters has over 35 years experience in commercial and sport fishing for salmon and halibut with 20 years of charter fishing in Alberni Inlet, Barkley Sound, and the surrounding offshore areas including Ucluelet and Bamfield.

We begin our salmon fishing season in the Alberni Inlet for Sockeye salmon. Most of our June to September fishing for salmon and halibut is up to 25 nautical miles offshore on La Perouse Bank. Large schools of migrating Chinook (King salmon) and Coho (Silver salmon) stop to feed on the abundance of krill, herring, anchovies, pilchard, squid, and needlefish that are present on the Bank. The voracious feeding on this bait leads to incredible salmon and halibut fishing that is known to out-produce Alaska fishing trips. Whales are a common sight during offshore salmon and halibut fishing trips.

When the conditions are right, later in the season, we can take you saltwater Coho salmon fly fishing. Our vessel is a walk-around design and two can cast from either end of the vessel, or we can bucktail for surface feeders at a fast troll for some spectacular action.

The West Coast of Vancouver Island in British Columbia is one of the most scenic marine areas in the world and the drive to Ucluelet from Port Alberini, along Sproat Lake, over Sutton Pass, and past Kennedy Lake to Ucluelet offers breathtaking scenery.

Let us take you on the salmon and halibut fishing experience of a lifetime.
