Our River Boats

The Red Inflatable

Favored by guides all over the world, this 14′ fishing raft is the most stable and versatile fishing frame available.  It’s great in low water conditions and rapids.  The AIRE raft with a hard, wood floor comes complete with a rower’s platform, secure standing areas for bow and stern anglers and can accommodate enough gear for day trips and overnighters. The AIRE raft is an inflatable drift boat, and it draws less water and, therefore, is more forgiving than any hard boat.  It is a great casting platform for two anglers; one standing at each end of the boat. The raft is regularly used by local fishing guides who need to run Class III & IV rapids.

 

 

The Fish Rite Power Drifter

Perfect for fishing two fly fishermen or two gear fishermen. This river boat is one of the nicest river guide boats on Vancouver Island and the only one of its kind. The Power Drifter is capable of motoring up river and then being rowed like a drift boat down stream. Perfect for sneaking up on unsuspecting steelhead, salmon and trout. Some of the amenities on this boat are: seating for three guests, two raised fishing platforms with braces, heat, small stove for coffee, tea and hot chocolate, dry storage for your gear and protected side storage for rods up to 14ft long.
