FISHING LICENSES for our NANAIMO & UCLUELET FISHING CHARTERS
A valid fishing licence (tidal fishing licence and salmon stamp) is required by every angler aboard our fishing charters. These licences may be purchased online from the Department of Fisheries and Oceans of BC website (www.dfo-mpo.gc.ca). For non-residents targeting Halibut on our Ucluelet fishing charters, it is suggested that you purchase your fishing licence at a local fishing store either in Ucluelet or on your way into Ucluelet as Halibut fishing in area 123 (Ucluelet) is monitored differently than other areas on the West Coast of Vancouver Island.
