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 salmon fishing trip of a lifetime.


A "Big" thank you to you and your staff for making this years fishing trip, one of the best we ever had.

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 Salmon as they are consistently feeding along the miles of kelp reefs that line our area. Idling along the kelp beds you don't really know what you are going to get. Don't forget about the Halibut fishing on the West Coast of B.C., there are plenty of Halibut to go around. These leviathans of the deep keep our guests intrigued for an entire day of west coast fishing excitement. Abundant bottom fish that will readily bite your lure include Ling Cod, Rock Fish and Snapper otherwise known as Yellow Eye Rock Fish.

Totems in the Great Bear RainforestOur 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 Rain forest home of the Kermode or Spirit Bear (White Phase Black Bear) and the area resonates with the sounds of Bald Eagles and other waterfowl.

It truly is a spiritual place 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 vacation resort and helped to make it what it is today. 

Whatever your goal is 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.

"The saltwater sport fishing here is some of the best salmon fishing British Columbia has to offer."
