Port Renfrew - April to September

Port Renfrew fish haulPort Renfrew is located north of Sooke, a leisurely 2-hour drive from downtown Victoria.  Our moorage at Port Renfrew provides access to the rich feeding grounds of the Swiftsure Bank. After approximately 45 minutes boat ride out of Port Renfrew, you will find yourself in an incredible ocean ecosystem, with pelagic birds, humpback and Orca whales, and of course world-class fishing for halibut and salmon. In spring and summer, thousands of migrating salmon pass by Swiftsure Bank along the coastal highway, heading towards the mighty Fraser and Columbia Rivers and countless smaller streams, providing excellent fishing opportunities! Port Renfrew is one of the best places in BC to chase the hard-hitting big "Kings" or "Chinook" salmon. Add in Coho ("silver") salmon, halibut, red snapper, and ling cod, and you have the potential an amazing day's fishing! August-September offer unbeatable Coho salmon fishing, with 25 pound plus trophies possible.

Sooke - October to March

big chinookSooke BC is located on Vancouver Island's beautiful west coast, just a 40-minute drive from Victoria.  Sooke offers year-round fishing. Seawind's "winter" fishing season begins in early October with winter chinook salmon (feeder springs or "black mouth" salmon) that range from 5-25 pounds. The halibut fishing starts in February (depending on fishing regulations).
