Vancouver Fishing Guides

When we first started Bon Chovy Fishing Charters in 2005, we just wanted a way to get on the water as much as we could!   We bought a boat, did a few charters, and soon realized we were on to something!   

In successive years, we built up our reputation, business and our fleet. In 2021, we are one of  the biggest fishing charter companies in Vancouver, BC!  We have top of the line guide boats, with top notch Mercury Marine Outboards!  We are committed to our clients and  committed to salmon conservation.  We are leaders in salmon conservation and research in the sport fishing industry.
