Our fishing charter trips are for parties of 2 - 6 people. Trip lengths range from 5 - 8 hours depending on which trip is chosen. We operate two charter vessels, which provides greater flexibility and allows us to book larger parties (greater than 6). Parties of 4 or more are guaranteed a private charter. The size of your party will determine which boat you will be on. Both vessels offer heated cabins and bathroom facilities on board.

B.C. Canada Halibut: We are now running all day Halibut trips to B.C. (meaning we are no longer bound to just U.S halibut dates). You must posses a Passport, Passport card, or an Enhanced Drivers License. Additionally you must obtain a Canadian Fishing license ($7.35). The license can be purchased on-line at the following link www-ops2.pac.dfo-mpo.gc.ca/nrls-sndpp/index-eng.cfm. The rate for these trips is $220 with a 4 person minimum. Please call us for more details.
10% discount for active duty military and their dependents or those with a reserve or retired military ID card.
One day fishing licenses can be purchased from us for $10.50. This rate applies to both resident and non-resident alike.
We take a minimum of 2 guests and a maximum of 6. When 4 or more guests are booked from the same party we guarantee a private charter. (Please note that under any situation, all booked guests pay the full rate regardless the number in the party, their age, or desire to fish).
Singles will be added to an existing charter. So for you guys or gals who like to fish but can't find friends or family to come along, give us a shout and we'll likely fit you in.
We do offer inter-island service. The location we are currently fishing will determine the pick up and drop off fee. Please call as we can arrange pick-ups at most docks within the Islands.
We will fillet and bag your fish and, if you're an out-of-area customer, I'll help you arrange to have your catch professionally packaged, frozen and shipped to your home. You can even request all or part of your salmon be smoked. Please inquire about this service!
Highliner Charters requires a 50% credit card deposit to hold the reservation. Full payment in cash will be due on the day of the charter. We accept cash only for the balance due on the day of the charter so plan accordingly.
To change a reservation, please call as soon as possible so I can do my best to reschedule you.
To cancel a reservation, call at least 14 days prior to the trips scheduled departure time. A cancellation under 14 days will result in forfeit of your deposit unless I can fill the vacancy. Additionally, cancellations inside 48 hours of the trip, or no-shows the day of, will result in a full charge being applied to the credit card which held the deposit. (All cancellations are subject to a $10 processing fee).
Any "no-shows" on the day of the charter will result in a full charge to the credit card which held the reservation.
We DO NOT take checks, Discover, or American Express.
