Check into your hotel. Then check out some amazing fishing. Victoria Harbour is located right in the middle of British Columbia’s capital city, just a short walk from many downtown hotels. Hop onto a charter boat and fish for salmon at great spots at the entrance of the Harbour, like Ogden Point or the area near Oak Bay.
Bed & Breakfast. Salmon & Halibut. Oak Bay is an English-flavoured Village just a short drive from Victoria, and a short boat ride to some spectacular fishing. Take a boat from Oak Bay Marina to fish for Salmon and Halibut off the southeast tip of Vancouver Island, in full view of the beautiful, windswept shoreline nearby and Mount Baker in the distance the first volcano in the Pacific Rim of Fire
Roll up your sleeves. And your pant legs. The waters between Victoria and Port Renfrew, along the southern coast of Vancouver Island, are perfect for sightseeing, pleasure boating and crabbing. So put down the fishing rod, and drop a Crab trap or two instead. After a few hours of sightseeing and wildlife viewing, your traps should be filled to the brim with the area’s tasty Dungeness Crabs.
A fishing trip fit for a King. Or an Empress. Combine fishing with sightseeing, and spend some time on the water within sight of British Columbia’s Parliament Buildings and historic Empress Hotel. Numerous guided charters leave from Victoria’s harbour, and you can fish for Salmon and Halibut while watching seaplanes and other water traffic then return to shore to explore the rest of B.C.’s Capital.
