Boating and Fishing in Vancouver


There’s no better place for the boating and fishing enthusiast than Vancouver with its stunning coastline and endless waterways. Charter a boat from any number of charter boat companies and head out for the open water. The largest concentrations of these charter companies are located at Granville Island, Horseshoe Bay and Coal Harbour. They can also advise you where the fish are biting.

For saltwater fishing information, contact the Federal Department of Fisheries and Oceans (604.666.2828) and for freshwater fishing information, the British Columbia Ministry of Environment, Lands, and Parks (604.582.5200) will be more than helpful. Licenses are required for both types of fishing and can be obtained from tackle shops, the Army and Navy department stores and marinas throughout the Lower Mainland.
