Why People Choose Outsider
Excellent Charter. Chris was a great guide and host and definitely wanted us to enjoy the fishing experience. His boat was very clean and well equipped. Chris was very knowledgeable on where and how to fish and catered to me being a novice, his patience and friendly demeanor was amazing. Both my husband and I can’t say enough great things about what an amazing experience we had. It was such an enjoyable afternoon and we will definitely come back . . .
Last day of the season! Excellent day fishing around Campbell River with Outsider Charters. Chris the guide was very knowledgeable of the area and boat and equipment used was top quality. Weather was great and we managed to catch a view fish despite being out of season. Overall a truely rememberable day and I recommend fishing with Chris to anybody.
I’ve fished on the inside and outside of Vancouver Island for several years, and the trip this year with Outsider Charters was the best experience yet. The boat was spacious and comfortable, with plenty of room for myself, my wife, and our three young children. Our guide Chris was patient, knowledgeable, and a pleasure to be around. He made sure we enjoyed ourselves, and we all caught our limit both days we went out. Can’t say enough about this experience . . . Highly recommended!
Chris made this an amazing experience for my entire family! He took the time to learn about all of us at the time of booking to make sure he could accommodate our needs, which were quite varied. Beyond organizing our trip, Chris was a great guide. He was knowledgeable, patient and fun to spend the day with. He says we got lucky but I think a lot of it was his skill in coaching us and knowing the best places to fish 🙂 Would recommend Outsider Charters to anyone who is looking for a great fishing adventure!!
I have been fishing British Columbia for many years, and Outsider Charters provided the best fishing experience I have ever had. Chris proved to be highly professional, extremely knowledgable, and very friendly and courteous. Chris had no problem finding us plenty of fish . . . I could not recommend Chris’ Outsider Charters Inc. strongly enough. A pure delight.
1st class salmon fishing trip. We had an awesome day on the water. Chris is an excellent guide, made sure we had a lot of fun, and got everything we wanted out of our fishing trip. The boat is really well setup and with Chris’s help we caught a whole range of fish and managed to fit in some sight seeing. Definitely recommend Chris and Outsider Charters.
Awesome Family Fishing Trip We had a great family salmon fishing trip with Chris. He was excellent from the first contact. We appreciated the time he took to share information and answer our many questions. All 4 of us had a great time, each catching multiple fish with each of us getting a nice keeper. We would definitely recommend Chris with Outsider Charters for anyone looking for an awesome fishing experience. It seemed he did everything possible to make it a great experience for us and we are sure he will for you as well. Thanks Chris!!
What an amazing day on the ocean! Our guide Chris was extremely competent at finding salmon and coaching us on how to reel them in. Boat is comfortable and clean, equipment is state-of-the-art and the fishing day was both successful and highly enjoyable. Even had time to see some local wildlife as we explored different fishing areas. I strongly recommend Outsider Charters and Captain Chris for any fishing group.
My hubby and I did his bucket list salmon fishing trip – it was phenomenal! Fishing was incredible and I knew I would be comfy on board even if the fishing gods weren’t on our side. Outsider Charters has a toilet on the boat, aluminium hard top and heater inside the cab to keep you warm just in case it’s raining at Campbell River. Plus lots of space and ice in the cooler to keep your refreshments chilled. Happy to read and see they had COVID protocols. We caught our limit, enjoyed the scenery and watching the seals and sea lions, Chris was easy to chat with and it was a great way to enjoy Beautiful British Columbia.
My family spent two fabulous days on the water with Outsider Charters in Campbell River. Comfortable, spacious boat. Chris is a great guide; professional, knowledgeable and personable. Chris also took care to show us the beautiful scenery of the ocean and the islands near Campbell River. We had a great time! I think we’re hooked! Thank you, Chris.
My husband and I had such an incredible time out on the water fishing salmon with Chris and Outsider Charters, it was my first time fishing and Chris was a knowledgeable, kind, and patient guide and teacher. We had an amazing time fishing, chatting, and enjoying the marine life . . . We enjoyed our time so much that we plan on coming back next year and perhaps making this into our new family tradition!
Cannot recommend booking with Chris enough! We had such a fantastic day out on the water. He was fantastic with both an experienced fisher as well as someone just learning. The boat had everything you would need for a comfortable day out fishing regardless of weather. We will definitely be booking back with him the next time we go to Campbell River!
