Be sure to take advantage of our all inclusive vacation packages and Canadian fly-in fishing trips. From early May through September our West Coast Resort is situated among a myriad of channels, islands and inlets that are teeming with all five species of salmon on their annual migrations to their natal streams. The highlight is definitely the huge and hard-hitting Chinook Salmon - otherwise known as king salmon that are consistently in the Tyee class (over 30 pounds). A trip to Shearwater could be your fishing trip of a lifetime. The feisty and acrobatic Coho Salmon (Silver Salmon) are voracious feeders and can be found in large numbers throughout the area. We enjoy fly fishing for Coho as they are consistently feeding along the miles of kelp reefs that line our area. Idling along the kelp beds. And don't forget about the Halibut fishing! There are plenty of Hali to go around. These leviathans of the deep keep our guests intrigued for an entire day of fishing excitement. Abundant bottom fish that will readily bite your lure include Lingcod, Rock Fish and Snapper otherwise known as Yelloweye Rock Fish. The saltwater sportfishing here is some of the best Salmon fishing British Columbia has to offer. Our area supports an amazing amount of wildlife both in the ocean and on land. Milbanke Sound and the Discovery Passage support enormous numbers of Orcas (killer whales) and Humpback Whales - so whale watching is readily available. We are are on the doorstep of the Great Bear Rainforest home of the Kermode or Spirit Bear, Sea wolves and the area resonates with the sounds of Bald Eagles and other waterfowl. It truly is a spiritual place and it is no wonder that First Nations peoples settled here at the beginning of time. They are still here and many of the people from Bella Bella work at our resort and help to make it what it is today. Shearwater’s sheltered waters and pristine location ensure that you will have the trip of a lifetime. Be sure to contact us to discuss the possibilities.
