The fully enclosed heated cabin features comfortable seating for five guests, allowing you to relax inside while you wait for the fish to hit. When the fish are biting you’ll have all the room you need to get your prized fish to the boat. The large fishing deck has plenty of room to deal with the double and even triple headers you will likely encounter without tripping over your fishing buddies. There won’t be any need to take turns with the Kingfisher 2825. Now everyone can fish at once.

4.Tyee Rowing

This is as pure as fishing gets. Traditional Tyee Fishing is done from classic rowboats in the famous Campbell River Tyee Pool. Experienced local guides will teach you the proper techniques and row the boat through the pool. It is then up to you to watch the rod and set the hook when the fish bite. If the fish is successfully boated and weighs over 30 lbs., the catch is recorded and the angler has earned a membership in the Tyee Club.

We proudly maintain the largest and most affordable fleet of rental boats on Vancouver Island. Choose from 16′ Hourstons or Double Eagle watercraft. Both comfortable and easy to manoeuvre.
