More than fishing


With over  20 years of experience fishing on the BC Coast we know the spots to go.


Fish from our clean and comfortable boats to go along with a quaint, relaxing accommodation delivering a truly unique Pacific Coast Fishing Charter experience.

"One good catch with us will create memories for a life time!"

Why Port Hardy?

Port Hardy, BC is renown for having the most prolific salmon, halibut and bottom fishing waters off Vancouver Island.


The Nutrient rich waters of the Queen Charlotte straight attract bait, sports fish species and wildlife alike.   We offer the same “Big Lodge” fishing experience at a fraction of the price.


Our passion for fishing and the great outdoors is what we hope to share with every single guest, regardless if  you are fishing for the first time or you are a seasoned angler.


We strive to give each guest the experience of a lifetime and want you to come back and fish with us again!


Our goal is to have you come as our guest and leave as our friends.

What Boat Will We Use?

When you book a fishing charter with Fish Harder Charters you will be fishing off a very comfortable 25 foot Campion hard top with twin outboards.  Stay out of the elements until your “fish is on!"  Boats are equipped with a marine toilet, GPS, VHF Radio, Delorme inreach satellite communication device, radar, hummingbird down and side imaging fishfinder, Scottys electric downriggers, top of the line rods, reels and tackle.  All our guests have to do is show up with a good attitude, bring your licence and lunch!
