Just a short note to say thank you so much for a safe, excellent and productive couple of days of fishing - not only for us but our grandkids, Cam and Martin. We had an awesome time and appreciate all that you did for us. Once again we experienced one of our best vacations in Kitimat. Providing us with a unique combination of fishing both the river and the ocean was amazing. You have shown us what the Northwest has to offer and your hospitality and knowledge of fishing is incredible. Drifting the river and hooking into so many steelhead made for an awesome day. We truly enjoyed our ocean experience catching halibut, crabs and cod. Seeing the Killer whales was an unforgettable experience for both of us. We will be back. Thank you so much!

Our host of River & Ocean Adventures would cost much more at other resorts or lodges along the coast.
Why fish with inexperienced guides? Nautical West captains and guides have years of providing sport fishing adventures to guests. Local knowledge of rivers and ocean regions and conditions is critical to success in getting our guests hooked up. Fishing adventures are about having fun and enjoying great times with your friends and family and this is just one of our standards!
With us, our guests can choose a day or two on the Rivers & then journey out on the Ocean to experience the Big Coast! When it comes to regions of BC, this is one of the best in destinations to fish for world class Steelhead, bountiful runs of Salmon, enormous Pacific Halibut & top notch prawnin & crabbin! Not to mention the Hot-springs, scenery & marine wildlife that also keeps you entertained!
As for other destinations along the west coast, wind and big seas can add to tough day on the water! This region is well known to be a choice for those whom like less rolls and calm waters! With plenty of islands to hide behind and great fishing to experience, this has been in favour to our guests!
Most critical experience for our guests is to know that comfort and safety is provided! With fully equipped safety equipment (first-aid kits & life jackets) on all our vessels and closed cabins on our ocean rigs with galleys, sleeping accommodations and the important washrooms.
