We offer single and multi-day trips, as well as charters that involve multiple boats.
Although we can accommodate more, a group of three to four people per boat is optimal for comfort, room to fish, and rod time. We recommend limiting your groups to this size.
For those who prefer not to fish, we’re pleased to offer private, small-group wildlife viewing charters. Tour the Discovery Islands and witness the incredible diversity of wildlife that lives here: killer whales, humpback whales, sea lions, dolphins, bald eagles, seals, bears, porpoises, and more.
You’ll have the whole boat to yourselves, with all the benefits of a fully covered and enclosed cabin. See the ocean the way you want to.
Different guests have different needs. If you want to customize your private charter in any way, or if you have specific requests, let us know.
You might have a corporate event, a special occasion, or maybe you’re planning an annual trip with your buddies. Whatever it is, we can accommodate you.
Rates do not include 5% G.S.T or optional gratuities.
Given the uncertainty surrounding the effect of coronavirus (COVID-19), we have changed our deposit policy.
A $400 CAD deposit is required to book, and that deposit will now be fully refundable (less payment processing fees) in the event that the charter can’t proceed due to COVID-19. This means your deposit will be refundable if there are related governmental travel restrictions or prescribed medical or disease limitations that prevent the charter from occurring, or if you are prevented from travelling to Campbell River by reason of a transportation provider withdrawing their services due to COVID-19.
We recognize that COVID-19 has presented unique circumstances. People have to make decisions about health and safety, and those decisions should not be impacted by a monetary penalty.
The balance of your charter fees is due prior to departure, which remains unchanged.
We accept Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and e-Transfer.
If you cancel for any reason not related to COVID-19 as set out in the deposit policy above:
(a) your deposit will be refunded if you cancel 60 days or more from the date of your trip; and,
(b) your deposit will not be refunded if you cancel within 60 days of the date of your trip.
We reserve the right to cancel a booking at any time due to circumstances beyond our control, such as unsafe weather conditions. If that happens, your deposit will be refunded in full if we can’t reschedule a mutually agreeable date.
Outsider Charters Inc. remains fully operational and is taking bookings for the 2021 season.
The health and safety of our clients and community is our top priority. We want to make sure you fully enjoy your fishing trip and stay safe at the same time.
We’ve developed a COVID-19 Health & Safety Protocol in alignment with the guidelines set out by the BC Provincial Health Officer and the Sport Fishing Institute of BC. We will modify our protocols in step with our provincial government’s guidance.
Importantly, we’ve changed our deposit policy so you don’t have to be worried about trip cancellations due to COVID-19.
We’re here to make sure you can still have a great Vancouver Island fishing experience. Give us a call for more details.
