• “My family and I enjoyed the Howe Sound Sea Safari offered by Sewell’s Marina immensely! It was a blast seeing the wildlife, hearing the local stories from the guide and the boat ride itself was invigorating while we were tucked into our survival suits against the elements. This is truly an experience I would not want to miss!”

  • “We rented a boat on a beautiful day – they gave us a great route to do for 2 hours. We had so much fun, and got to see the seals on the Pam Rocks, which was a very unique experience. All in all, wonderful, cheery, happy staff, who helped us have such a wonderful experience. I would recommend this to anyone, and has really made the Top 5 things we’ve done whilst here in Canada on our working holiday visa!”

Fishing Report

July 11th, 2017

Summer is here!

Fishing has really picked up in the last couple of days; with nice Chinook, Coho and Pink salmon starting to coming in. With some nice sized Chinook showing up (15-25 pounders), some amazing “silvers” (Coho) and the odd Pinks, July is proving to be an excellent month so far. As the month continues we expect to see an increase in the Pink Salmon fishery, which is a great fishery to get kids out fishing and excellent for the BBQ. Some of the hot spots have been Hole in the Wall, South end of Bowen (between Cowans Pt and Cape Roger Curtis), Seymour Bay and for those interested in venturing a little further on a charter; Thrasher Rock and Entrance Island. The optimal depth seems to be between 45 – 100 feet with either spoons or anchovies. Keep a good eye out for anchovy bait balls. Look for eagles and seals to help you spot them!

Great catch boys!

Tight lines,

The Sewell’s Team
