This is best in the summer months. August is the peak time but there are whales around in June and July also. Grey, humpback and killer whales are the most popular. These charters are done out of Prince Rupert.


We offer jet boat tours up some of the beautiful river valleys off the Skeena river. We tour the SKEENA, KASIKS, EXSTEW, KALUM, ZYMOTEZ, BULKLEY AND LAKELSE RIVERS. On these tours you will see beautiful snow capped mountains and depending on the time of year a variety of wildlife and birds. Bears, Moose, Eagles etc. The Lakelse is a walking sight seeing tour. Easy going walk down to the river where many Eagles and water fowl congregate. Usually see plenty of birds. Some times you will also get to see black bears fishing out the salmon. The Kalum is a jet boat tour of about 5 miles in an open jet boat. Eagles most of the year. Bears in the fall. Kasiks is another beautiful boat ride. Gorgeous valley for pictures. Also a chance of seeing bears, moose, deer and bird life. The Skeena is the main river. You could get aboard at Terrace and travel down stream to the Exchamsiks river. This is about 40 miles of river. Stop and have lunch along the way.

The Exstew is another very beautiful river valley with gorgeous scenery and a possibility of seeing wildlife and birds. Good fishing in the fall.

The Zymotez and Bulkley are raft rides. A little more rugged. Best for the younger guests.


In Terrace we offer a bed and breakfast style accommodations for our guest. This could be full accommodations for our fishing guests with all meals or just a bed and breakfast for river tour guests just passing through. We can handle up to eight quests for the B&B. This would be two per room.


The Lava Beds are in the Nass Valley just north of Terrace. Hundreds of years ago the lava completely covered the NISGA village. Some very nice scenery, water falls and beautiful coloured water in some of the pools. April and May lots of bears along the way. This is now a park and we would need the natives to accompany us on this tour.

KINCOLITH Village Tour

This tour is about a three hour bus ride up the Nass valley to a native village. We drive right by the Lava beds on our way. When we get to the village you can view Totem poles, gift shops, a very scenic village. April and May loads of bears along the way. Very good time if your into seeing bears. Some excellent steelhead fishing in this area also in April and May. July 1st long weekend is crab feast. If your into a real treat of pigging out on fresh caught crab, this is the time to book.

KASAN village

Located on the Kispiox river is another village worth seeing. Totem poles, gift shops and if booked enough in advance we may be able to set up a salmon bake in the village. Depending on the time of year they might be drift net fishing for sockeye. Or smoking their fish the native way. Might even get a chance to speak to some of the old chiefs. There is still a few around.


This tour is a full day tour. Could also be an over night tour. It is about a four hour drive to Hyder Alaska. Small town with reastraunts, a hotel, Lots of gift shops, Beautiful Glaciers, and Grizzly bear viewing platform on the salmon river. Usually the evening is the best time to see the bears so a sleep over might be in order.

This tour we will take you Grizzly bear viewing. Along the way you will also be viewing the beautiful Glaciers.

All our tours are done with very experienced guides. We will supply all safety equipment.
