EXPERIENCE & PASSION
Tim has been fishing for over 30 years and spends almost all of his year-round fishing efforts specifically in the salmon rich areas in and around Vancouver. Tim has a knack for knowing when and where the Chinooks (King), Coho, Sockeye, Pinks and Chum Salmon are located throughout the year and he’s more than happy to let you in a few secrets while out on your trip. Tim’s lifetime experience fishing and freshwater fish throughout several Canadian Provinces and the USA is a huge asset for getting you to the right fishing spots for salmon. Captain Tim is likely the friendliest guide on the water.

OUR ARIMA SEA RANGER BOAT
Our Arima Sea Ranger 19 has been paired with a brand 2015 135HP Evinrude ETEC motor and a Yamaha kicker motor for trolling and added safety. The Arima features a hard-top cabin to stay dry on those rainy days. Arima boats are made in Seattle, WA…and designed specifically for west coast fishing. The ETEC motor boasts the ‘best EPA emissions in the world, even better than any 4-Stroke on the market”. For added safety and trolling, we have a Yamaha outboard auxiliary motor. Our boat is commercially registered and licensed with Transport Canada. Three stars from the toughest emission standard in the world – the California Air Resources Board. Plus, they’re the only outboard to win the EPA Clean Air Excellence Award. No other brand of outboards produces fewer reportable emissions than the Evinrude E-TEC family of engines.
