North Island Fishing Adventures (NIFA) is a fishing charter company operating from Port McNeill near the northern end of Vancouver Island.
This area is blessed with an abundance of beautiful scenery combined with some amazing wildlife and awesome fishing.
Located on the inside passage the area is well known for its calm seas, whale watching and bear tours as well as a home to a large variety of marine mammals. It is also located in a natural funnel where migrating schools of salmon must pass while heading to their native rivers.
This is a very family friendly area to fish as we are not way off shore and have numerous good fishing spots just minutes from town.
The main reason you should consider NIFA as your choice when selecting an operator to take you out is experience.
Your guide Roland has a long history of fisheries related work including years of fish hatchery work as well as travelling the province doing stock assessment and snorkel survey's.
Roland first started guiding over 25 years ago including 17 years at Sund's lodge fishing local waters. While at the lodge a writer for Sport Fishing magazine wrote "fishing with Roland must be like golfing with Jack Nicklaus".
Roland is also fully licensed and has certificates for Small vessel operator,marine first aid, radio and marine emergency duties.
While fishing with NIFA you will be going out on a covered North River aluminum boat with an 150 hp outboard and a 9.9 hp kicker. The boat is also equipped with radar, 2 gps and fish finder and electric downriggers.
There is a toilet system easily set up and we hang a curtain for complete privacy. We can also set up a small stove that is ideal for making hot beverages in the morning or some hotdogs for lunch.
All fishing gear and bait is included, all you need is fishing licenses and snacks.
Be assured that NIFA will do everything it can to make sure that you have a safe, comfortable, and enjoyable day out on the water.
