Luxury Adventures: These wilderness-fishing excursions are done for the halibut -- and the salmon too! Westwind Tugboat Adventures offers cruises that combine extraordinary fishing and amazing sightseeing along the Inside Passage between Vancouver, BC, and Juneau, Alaska. Each day of a trip is devoted to tracking the best saltwater and stream fishing. The accompanying sights are breathtaking. Seeing undisturbed wildlife, green forests, coastal mountains, never-ending waterways, coves, bays, and the skylines is an extremely satisfying cathartic experience. Along the way guests see whales and porpoises popping out of the waters; eagles soaring overhead; and bears milling through the untamed wilderness.
Passengers cruise the fabled waters of the Inside Passage in vintage 1941 wooden, heritage tugboats. Travelers board either the Parry or the Union Jack. With 12 being the maximum capacity of passengers, camaraderie and new friendships strike up the first day out. Each group or cabin receives an 18-foot skiff and tackle. So, passengers are able to pick and choose when they want to fish.
The Follow the Fish tours are offered yearly May through September. The scheduled trips are seven days. The Langara Island area is explored May through June. Prince Rupert is covered the month of July. The bays and coves of Bella Bella are on the agenda from July through September. Very experienced local fishermen are aboard to offer guidance and assistance. Every evening is a party with clam diggings, clambakes, fish fries, and barbeques. An extensive wine selection also is included to perk up the amenities package.
Special tours can be arranged for groups or special gatherings. This is an opportunity to experience a slice of real wildlife by land and sea with Westwind Tugboat Adventures.
