High Seas package

If you’d like private boats within your group, for example a party of 4 wanting separate boats, 2 boats can be guaranteed for $750 per person.

Our Boats & Equipment

Our fleet consists of 4 26’ Aluminum Chambered Boats that are generally regarded as the safest, most comfortable fishing boats on the market. As well as 4 27’ custom built NorthRiver Sea Hawk OS’ vessels. The boats have fully enclosed heated cabins, private bathrooms, suspension seating as well as Transport Canada Approved safety equipment for your comfort. Your group will have a private boat for your expeditions on the water, or several if your group is large, as we usually fish 3-4 people per boat.

All of our boats are equipped with state of the art Lowrance Radar, GPS, and depth sounder units to make sure you can find the fish and stay on top of them. Our vessels are powered by 250HP yamaha outboards, and our top of the line fishing rods and reels ensure you don’t lose that fish of a lifetime.
