Salmon & Halibut Fishing

Our charters are very different from any other charter. Our boat, the Thunder 1, is a live-aboard boat. This means you fish, sleep and eat on the boat. Other charters have a lodge to start and end the day from. Not with us though. You get to live on the boat for the duration of the charter. Join our hosts for amazing fishing and board your own private yacht for the fishing experience of a lifetime.

Our Canada Fishing Charters normally span four to five days with our guests living and fishing aboard the M.V. Thunder 1. Doug and Deb Emery are your hosts and have cruised up and down the coast of British Columbia for years fishing and boating. They are a wealth of information about the best techniques and where the fish are biting.

Overnights are spent in peaceful anchorages close to the salmon and halibut fishing grounds so you can have the rods in the water for the early morning bite.

Your Boat

Accommodation for your crewed charter is aboard Thunder 1, a classic 52′ Wahl Trawler. Wahl boats were a mainstay of the BC West Coast fishing fleet for many years and the Thunder 1 is a fine example of a west coast heritage vessel. It’s a great way to experience the beautiful west coast of Canada.

This boat was built from scratch as a pleasure boat; she is fully equipped with the latest in modern electronics and safety equipment along with all the comforts of home. We can accommodate up to 6 guests in two private forward staterooms with separate shower and washroom facilities. Please check out our Vessel page for more information about this unique trawler.

Safety First

Your vessel and crew are Coast Guard Certified. Each year the Thunder 1 undergoes a rigorous safety inspection. She provides a safe, comfortable journey whether our boating travels take us salmon fishing, whale watching or eco-touring.

Plan Your Custom Tour

Custom trips of longer duration can be arranged to meet your specific needs. Contact us for more information.

Many of our guests return year after year, Doug and Deb look forward to providing you with the fishing and cruising adventure of a lifetime.
