Looking for some great Salmon, Halibut, or Tuna fishing? Or maybe you are looking for an unforgettable wilderness adventure off the shores of Vancouver Island? Starfish Charters is your expert guide for both, based out of Port Hardy on Vancouver Island's northern shores.
Join us where the fish are biting, the whales are playing, the eagles are soaring, and the bears are foraging. Our services include fishing charters, wilderness tours, kayaking support, birdwatching, and more.
