Our Guides

At Island Outfitters we have a collection of experienced Freshwater, Saltwater and Fly Fishing guides to offer you the best possible fishing adventure on Vancouver Island. We pride ourselves in our knowledge of the island and its best fishing spots.

Our Boats

We have boats leaving Victoria year round, and out of Port Renfrew through the summer. If Fly fishing is your passion we have two drift boats on the Cowichan River, and for some more remote angling we offer jet boat trips for salmon. Below you will find a link to our Saltwater and Freshwater charter boats and some stats to go along with them.
