Salmon Charters

Coho & Chinook salmon put up a good fight!

Ocean salmon fishing usually happens close to shore or a few miles out. Coho, also known as “Silvers”, are feisty and aggressive, and they're known for doing the alligator roll so be prepared to always keep your line tight and reel fast. Chinook are often times a bigger fish that tend to stay deeper and pull harder. We’ll troll using spinners and bait and no matter which species you hook, they all give you a fun fight.

Pricing: $1000 boat cost for up to 4 people; 5th and 6th guests $250 each

Trip Length: 6-8 hours

Limit: 2 hatchery Coho per person. (Chinook limits are set by ODFW each year)

What To Expect:

  • A long day full of adventure in the Pacific Coastal waters.
  • Up to 8-hours of sea time.
  • If we get into fish, be prepared to fight hard, keep your line tight, and reel fast.
  • Prepare to meet at Garibaldi Marina CH dock, slip #11 for an early morning start, depending on bar conditions and tides.

How To Prepare:

Getting your license:

Be sure to get your one-day fishing license at least one day before meeting at Garibaldi Marina for your charter trip as we often leave earlier than any licensing dealer is open for business. You can get a license on the ODFW mobile app, or at an authorized dealer like  most sporting goods stores.

If you are prone to sea-sickness:

  • Be sure to start taking anti-nausea medication at least two days before the trip to prepare your body for being on the ocean.
  • It is highly recommended that you do not drink alcohol the night before an ocean fishing trip.
  • It is also highly recommended that you do not eat greasy foods or dairy products the day of or night before your charter trip.
  • Please note: returning to port for sea-sickness is only done if the case is severe enough to require doing so.


  • A $99 deposit (payable check, Venmo, Paypal, or invoice) is required for all bookings, reserves your date, and will be credited toward a fulfilled trip.
  • If you cancel your trip within 7 days of your booking, your deposit is forfeited.
  • If the captain needs to cancel your trip due to weather, you will receive a full refund of your deposit and any monies received right away, unless your trip can be rebooked.
  • Want to stay in Garibaldi before or after your trip?  One good option near the marina is camping at The Old Mill which has tent sites and full RV hook-up site options available. Find out more about their rates and accommodations here.
  • Need or want your fish processed after your trip? Captain's Corner is your place! Tell us ahead if time and we'll book your cleaning for you. CC charges $10 per fish for same day cleaning; $8 per fish for next day

Then God said, "Let the waters swarm with fish & other life. Let the skies be filled with birds of every kind." So God created great sea creatures & every living thing that scurries & swarms in the water, & every sort of bird - each producing offspring of the same kind. And God saw that it was good. Then God blessed them, saying, "Be fruitful & multiply. Let the fish fill the seas, & let the birds multiply on the earth." Genesis 1:20-22
