Haida Gwaii, formally known as the Queen Charlotte Islands is rich in Haida culture and traditions…and home to Haida Fishing Charters.

At Haida Fishing Charters (HFC), we offer a fishing experience on the beautiful west coast of Haida Gwaii. You will travel to Skidegate Point through the Skidegate Narrows where you will catch glimpses of some amazing wildlife, some native only to these islands. Keep on the look out for black bears feasting along the shores, river otters and sea lions playing, bald eagles soaring above watching for their catch. There are over 1 million seabirds nesting along the shores, and if you are lucky you will see grey, humpback or killer whales chasing their feed.  So don’t forget your camera!

The West Coast of Haida Gwaii boasts some of the best saltwater fishing anywhere! Pacific salmon of all species travel through these waters on their way back to rivers from all along the coast. Get ready to reel in your big catch!

Haida Fishing Charters is the only Haida owned and Haida Guided fish charter company based out of Skidegate. Come fish in the comforts of our 26 foot covered Osprey “Haida Venture”.  (Don’t worry ladies; we do have onboard washroom facilities for your comfort.)

HFC provides experienced Haida guides with reliable, fully equipped boats for the salmon fishing adventure of a lifetime!

“Experience Haida Gwaii with Haida Guides.”
