Campbell River, BC fishing charters at their finest. Join us for an extraordinary adventure.


We’re fully operational and taking bookings for the 2020 season.  In order to address COVID-19 concerns, we have a Health & Safety Protocol in place that follows guidance of the BC Provincial Health Officer and the Sport Fishing Institute of BC – these measures are designed to keep everybody safe.  Get in touch with us for details.

Campbell River, BC fishing charters at their finest. Join us for an extraordinary salmon sport fishing adventure.

At Outsider Charters Inc. our priority is to provide you, your family and friends with a Vancouver Island fishing experience that you won’t soon forget. Campbell River is known as the Salmon Capital of the World. We target the big Chinook salmon that live in our waters, as well as the other species of Pacific salmon (Coho salmon, Sockeye, Chum and Pink) and bottom fish like Lingcod.

Your Campbell River fishing charter will also include beautiful seascapes, rugged coastal mountain geography, and exposure to incredible wildlife. Humpbacks, killer whales, bald eagles and seabirds, dolphins, porpoises, seals and sea lions all flourish in the area. Enjoy the comforts of guided fishing from our fully outfitted Northwest Aluminum Craft boat, including a heated, enclosed cabin with freshwater sink and onboard toilet.

Above all, we’re here to make sure you come away from your fishing trip fully satisfied. We approach our work with the utmost professionalism and integrity, and we take great pride in being able to share the Vancouver Island fishing experience with our guests. Come join us for the adventure.

If you cancel for any reason not related to COVID-19 as set out above, your deposit will be refunded if you cancel 60 days or more from the date of your trip.  If you cancel within 60 days from the date of your trip, $400 of your deposit is considered non-refundable and we will retain that amount.
