We fish for five different species of Pacific Salmon; Chinook and Coho being the heavy favorites. Our most popular bottom fish are Halibut and Ling Cod, but we also fish for a large variety of bottom fish species. A once in a lifetime fishing trip on the northern coast of British Columbia would not be complete without dropping a few traps for the delicious tasting crustaceans that inhabit the ocean floor beneath us. DC Charters is fully equipped to catch crab and prawn for those seeking the complete seafood platter.
This floating lodge is located in beautiful Work Channel, up the coast about an hour from Prince Rupert. The lodge offers a variety of rooms ranging from 4 people to 8 person cabins.

There is a spectacular common area that has a covered canopy area with numerous dining tables and BBQs for all guests to cook a nice meal at the end of each day, while reminiscing about the days highlights. Its not uncommon to have many different kinds of sea life visit the lodge whether its humpback whales swimming past the lodge on their way to feed in the mouth of the channel, seals and sea lions are observed frequently while at the lodge.

Dustin took us on a hotspring and crabbing charter early in the season and it was an absolute blast. Very professional and we got a pretty decent haul! I look forward to booking again during Salmon season.
I had an absolute blast, Dustin knows his boat and the area. We caught the best tasting fish I've ever had and seen some of the coolest stuff nature has to offer. Thank you so much Dustin you made my first trip to BC a very memorable one. I can't wait to see you next year, I'm running out of halibut.
Enjoyed a 3 Day Charter with Dustin. Absolutely incredible fishing trip. This was my 2nd year fishing with DC Charters and both trips were a huge sucess! Your arms will be sore from all the fish! We caught our limits of Halibut, Salmon and Lingcod. Very knowledgeable and friendly atmosphere on board. Book your next fishing trip with DC Charters, you wont be disappointed!!
Well, our second trip this season with Dustin at DC Fish Charters is one for the books. We didn’t think it was possible to top the last trip but Dustin never failed to raise the bar. We had the opportunity to stay 2 nights out on the water, anchored in a secluded quiet bay right next to the fishing grounds in Dustin’s very comfortable King Fisher. All 3 mornings were filled with chaos and excitement when we ended up limiting out on Salmon while trying to cook breakfast. The high continued throughout the day as we switched to bottom fishing and caught a wide variety of fish alongside the targeted Halibut and Ling Cod. Overall it was another amazing experience and we already can’t wait to get back out on the water with Dustin next season!
Group of us had been planning a West Coast Father/Son Fishing trip for years and in July 2023 we finally made it happen. Had an amazing trip out of Prince Rupert with Dustin at DC Charters! 😁 Dustin was an awesome guide and a key part in making our trip such a memorable, fun adventure. He put us on fish all day, often having fish on 2 lines at a time, making for some good chaos and action on the big water! He even made time and set a couple traps and treated us to a fresh feast of prawns 🦐 one evening! Enjoyed Dustin’s interactions with us - his stories, humour and teachings. His boat is amazing - it’s clean, organized and his gear is top notch which all made for an experience we’ll remember. Dustin knows his fishing - he’s very professional, knowledgeable friendly and accommodating and it’s easy to see that he truly loves fishing 🎣 Highly recommend Dustin at DC Charters for everyone’s next fishing adventure! Thanks again Dustin!
July 26, we went fishing with DC Charters. The trip was excellent, from the time the hooks hit the water until we were limited out we had a fish on and sometimes even 4 at a time. The boat is excellent and top of the line gear makes a difference. Dustin is a great guy and knows how and where to fish. Top shelf, thanks again Dustin, we will book again!!
Amazing Day out of Rupert we limited out on Halibut, got a few Cod and had a great time bringing in the coho. Followed by a bbq in the calm of one of the channels watching the whales playing in the distance! Highly recommend, very knowledgeable and helpful to those of us who aren’t a seasoned fisherman. Can’t wait to book again for next season!
Highly recommend DC charters! We had a blast fishing with Dustin for two days. If your looking to go fishing in Rupert I would give DC charters a call. We will definitely be going back. Dustin's knowledge on fishing and his boat were top notch, one of the best charters in town.
Dustin at DC Fish Charters went above and beyond catering to the exact style of fishing we were looking for. He was very knowledgeable and put us on 8 different species of fish on the first day. He is an outstanding Guide and all around genuine and friendly Captain. He blew our expectations out of the water. Thanks Dustin for the great experience, already looking forward to our next charter this summer!
