Flyboarding is the hottest new water sport, a truly unique adventure that cannot compare with any other sport out there. A Flyboard is powered by the water propulsion of a personal watercraft (jetski). The rider on the board is attached to the watercraft by an 80-foot hose that allows the flier the freedom to fly high or dive effortlessly into the water.

Flyboarding is easy to learn, and suitable for people of any age and ability. Your certified instructor will guide you through the experience. The average training time before you’re flying is 5 minutes, so you’ll be grinning from ear to ear in no time … and for days thereafter! Be sure to check this exhilarating challenge off your bucket list.

Ucluelet is centrally located in the center of the largest feed grounds on the west coast for salmon, halibut, ling cod and vermillion. Fishing from June 15 to September 10 is prime season though there can be good fishing starting in May and lasting up to late September. Ucluelet is accessible by car only 5 hours from Vancouver or 7 hours from Seattle. You can also fly from Vancouver to Tofino.

Our boats are 25-29′ with heated cabins and large decks to make your time on the water comfortable. Our boats are rigged with only the best equipment and our guides know how to get you on both salmon and halibut.

Most people book our Silver or Gold packages. Our gold package is the best deal, as you as you get large 1,600 square foot ocean view condos for groups of 3 and 4. For groups of 2 we normally use 1-bedroom condos, though you can upgrade for not much extra.

Whatever your goals are for this fishing trip, we will do our best to make your experience memorable. All trips must be booked well in advance as we run at capacity for summer months.
