• “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!”

    Gabrielle Loren, West Vancouver, BC
  • “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

FISHING REPORT

SUMMARY: 

Winter fishing is often our favorite time on the water. When you catch that day when the clouds are creeping along the coastal range, the water is calm like a pond and the majestic bald eagle has its eye on the sea just like you, the feeling is magic. Winter fishing takes you to the bottom where our winter Chinook feeders are chasing bait. The topography of the sea floor keeps you on your toes at this time of year and the time flies by. With a number of fun fishing holes to choose from you can’t go wrong.

HOWE SOUND: ( AREA 28 )

Areas of Howe Sound such as Tunstal Bay, third marker, Hutt Island and Grace Islets are not disappointing anglers. There are good numbers of Chinook to keep the angler busy.

Depth  : Get to the bottom and look for bait

Lures   : Spoons and Hootchies
