Why Book Thunder 1 Adventures

We offer a unique live aboard fishing experience as well as eco touring aboard our 52 ft. vessel, the Thunder 1.

Small Groups

Unlike large lodges with mixed groups we offer small private charters. When you organize your own group of 4 to 6 you have the vessel to yourselves.

Fully Guided

No hidden costs for guiding, bigger boats, or premium gear, your charter rates with Thunder 1 Adventure are all inclusive.

Calm Waters

Unlike the west coast of Vancouver Island, or the Queen Charlotte Islands (Haida Gwaii) we are not exposed to the Pacific Ocean swells. Our area of fishing and cruising is in the protected waters of Chatham sound.

Leisurely Fishing

All fishing done off the Thunder 1. No small boat fishing, no requirement for small vessel operating certificate, no worries about big waves or no washrooms. No worries about having a beer and operating a boat. We do all the driving while our guests enjoy themselves and concentrate on the fishing, or wildlife watching.


Don’t want to fish but want to watch, no problem as the Thunder 1 has lots of warm covered space on the back where you can watch the action and stay warm and dry or jump in to grab a rod when help is needed.

First Class Dining

You will experience some of the finest seafood meals you have ever had all prepared by your crew. A chance to catch crabs, drop the prawn traps, lots of hands on action on your trip.

Experienced Crew

No transient guides or staff aboard the Thunder 1. Your crew are the owners and operators of 17 years, who take great pride in making every trip a memorable one. It’s our home, and our business and we want you back.

Easy Access

Board your charter out of Prince Rupert. Serviced by Air Canada and connected by smooth paved highway from Prince George.

Flexible Days

It’s your vacation, and your group. Want a little more whale watching and less fishing, no problem, late start, early start, no problem your crew is here to make it work for you.


Often looked at as just a guy thing a good portion of our guests are couples. Without exception the gals have found the Thunder 1 as an awesome platform to share their partner’s passion, or vice versa. With the ability to stay out of the elements and still watch all the action the Thunder 1 has attracted a loyal following of guys and gals together.
