Absolute Sportfishing offers exciting adventures in Campbell River, British Columbia. The captain has over 20 years of local knowledge and experience. If you want to fish in protected waters surrounded by magnificent scenery, amazing tidal flows, and a dynamic marine environment, you have found the right place.

Situated between Vancouver Island and the coastal mainland, Cambell River is home to all 5 species of Pacific Salmon (Chinook, Coho, Sockeye, Pink, and Chum). They migrate through the fishing grounds as well as delicious Lingcod and bottom fish. And who knows, you might also be rewarded with Halibut while targeting Chinook Salmon!

Your charter boat is a beautiful Offshore 255 Pursuit that is kept immaculate and has fully covered comfortable seating, Espar heater, marine head, big screen GPS/sonar/radar, custom built rods, and the finest tackle & equipment. Equipped with new 4-stroke Yamaha main and trolling motors, 2 VHF radios, rain gear, and safety equipment, you are assured to be comfortable at all times.

Conveniently located in the heart of Campbell River surrounded by many options for dining and accommodations as well as being a hub for many other outdoor activities, you can find something for just about everyone’s tastes and budgets.
