• “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!”

    Annika, Vancouver, BC

Fishing Report

January 29th, 2019


January has seen good weather and anglers have been hitting the West side of Bowen Island, specifically Hutt Island, the Waterfall, Grace Islands, Gower Pt. and Tunstall Bay for winter Chinook. Now the new year in upon us the upper areas of Howe Sound will start to produce well. Typical sizes are ranging 8 to 12 lbs in the lower portion of Howe Sound with the upper tending to be larger. Spoons and hootchies have been the best bet, at depths of 100 to 170 ft.

With good fishing this early, 2019 looks like it will be a great time to get
out in our local Vancouver waters to try your luck Salmon fishing.

2019 will be a Pink year and a great time to get out on the water Mid July to Mid October while Mid April we will see Coho beginning to show. We’re lucky to always have fishing active nearby Howe Sound throughout the entire year and we anticipate great fishing season is anticipated for 2019. Call the marina for an update or details on a guided
fishing charter.























Tight lines,

The Sewell’s Team
