Welcome to Starfish Charters

Situated on the North end of Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada, we have become established as one of the main operators of Port Hardy fishing charters. This bustling port, just north of Port McNeill, is the hub for perhaps the best access to BC west coast sportfishingwhale watching and wildlife viewing.

Starfish Charters specializes in BC west coast deep sea fishing. Drawing on his years of experience on Vancouver Island waters, David takes up to 7 guests, usually family groups, small companies or friends with a love for angling in common, out to the waters of Queen Charlotte Strait, Queen Charlotte Sound and neighboring Smith and Seymour inlets. And if you’ve never been to this piece of British Columbia paradise before, you’ll soon discover that guided fishing, with Bald Eagles soaring overhead, is one of the most enjoyable ways to discover this region.

Salmon and Halibut Fishing Charters

Fishing guides David Connor, with his son Richard, bring to you an unforgettable experience for anglers and sightseers of every age. With Starfish Charters, you’ll relax and enjoy the breathtaking scenery and sightseeing, wildlife and ocean wilderness, and the thrill of hooking salmonhalibut, lingcod or red snapper.

Our Pledge at Starfish Charters is to provide an outstanding excursion into the British Columbia westcoast ocean wilderness; whether it be for angling, marine life viewing, kayaking or wilderness camping. "I've fished all over the world but nothing is better than the scenery and angling in the Port Hardy area, just a few short hours north of Victoria, on Vancouver Island." My biggest thrill is guiding you to where you can hook your own big one - whether it's halibut, salmon, lingcod, Red Snapper or Albacore Tuna. Returning to the dock with your catch limit is both stunning ... and nearly illegal.
