Limited Time Warm Water Window

Satellite Technology tells us when the right temperatures exist.

The weather is pivotal and can not be predicted to any degree of accuracy weeks in advance. NOAA has decades worth of current temperature data and the most likely week where the stars have aligned annually off Kyuquot is the last week in August.  This is the same time the Pacific Commercial Tuna Fleet fish the same waters.

Water Clarity is equally essential. The "BLUE" water is also visible on satellite systems measuring surface chlorophyll levels.  This indicator will also be used on a daily basis to find the best Tuna water.

Your Action Packed Four or Five Day Plan:  

Serviced by top caliber equipment and a talented crew with great food!

To give you the best opportunity, we have made these trips one day longer than our normal program. This gives you a better window at getting on the offshore Tuna waters. Generally, the weather is good and the warm water currents are closest during the last week of August. Our objective will be to get you into one full day of Tuna fishing out of the four or five day package. The remaining days will be spent fishing for Salmon, Halibut, Lingcod and Rockfish
  • Day One - 3pm arrival at Fair Harbour, Shuttle to lodge, Dinner, evening Salmon fishing
  • Day Two - 8 to 10 hrs guided fishing,
  • Day Three - 8 to 10 hrs guided fishing.
  • Day Four (optional) - 8 to 10 hrs guided fishing
  • Day Five - Morning Salmon/Halibut/Groundfish fishing, Brunch, Shuttle back to Fair Harbour by Noon.

*Season - only during the last week of August and first week of September

*Success is subject to water temperatures, clarity and Weather Conditions as determined by Head Guide on actual fishing days.

*This package is a combination trip that includes Salmon, Halibut, Lingcod and other Groundfish.  In the event that circumstances preclude Tuna fishing the trip will not be cancelled, delayed or transferred.  The usual other species will be sought after.

*Your safety is our #1 priority and no risks will be taken.  The trip is over 30 miles one way to the fishing grounds and will only happen if the conditions are calm at time of departure AND if the short term forecast is for calm seas later in the day.  Its a big trip!
