Who We Are

At Riptide Fishing Charters we are dedicated to creating lasting memories for all of our guests.  Our knowledgeable, experienced guide will take you into one of the most scenic and celebrated fishing areas in the world. Campbell River is known as the Salmon Fishing Capital of the World for good reason! Our calm, protected waterway is the main migration route for all five species of Pacific salmon. During the year, chinook, coho, sockeye, pink, and chum salmon all swim and feed in the area. We also have access to abundant stocks of Ling Cod and Halibut.

While out on the water you will share evergreen shores and sparkling seas with bald eagles, seals, sea lions, Humpback whales and even the occasional pod of dolphins or killer whales. Don’t worry though, there is plenty of fish to go around; and your guide, Scott, knows where to find them.




Born and raised in Campbell River, Scott has spent much of his life in the pursuit of fishing excellence. As a young boy he was drawn to the water, and under the guidance of his grandfather—who rowed through local waters using a hand-line—his father, and countless local experts, Scott has become an accomplished fisherman and guide. Let him share his experience and passion for the fun and excitement that salt-water fishing can bring.

Fishing has come a long way since Scott’s grandfather patrolled the coast, and Riptide Fishing Charters uses the best gear around to make your trip comfortable, safe, and productive. Our 25-foot Pursuit 2470 (the “Cadillac of the west coast”) is fully licensed, insured, and Transport Canada certified, with private bathroom facilities, and all the gear you will need. You will fish in comfort with our top-of-the-line equipment including high-end rods and Islander reels.
