Bamfield West Coast Fishing Resort and Charters
Mills Landing is a private oceanfront cottage resort located on the West Coast of Vancouver Island. We are on the southern edge of Barkley Sound in the little town of Bamfield.
This area, without question, is one of the most productive marine environments in the world. Bamfield has some of the west coast's best fishing right on our doorstep, and we are the closest access point to offshore fisheries that are truly world class. At Mills Landing we have five solid months of great fishing...and that's no fish story.
Come and see why more anglers choose to fish these waters than anywhere else in Canada. The west coast of Vancouver Island is paradise, and if you are looking for the best the west coast has to offer....look no further than here.
Bamfield British Columbia Fishing Charters
If you're up for some of the best fishing of your life book a Bamfield fishing charter with one of our guides, sit back and get ready! The fishing that we have on the west coast of Vancouver Island is nothing short of spectacular, and we'll do our best to ensure that you have a safe and fun time on the water.
Your biggest worry on a Bamfield fishing charter with us may be a lack of cooler space! We spend most of our summer going after chinook, halibut and coho and we fish hard for 5 months from May through September. If there's fish out there we'll get you into them fast!
Bamfield Salmon Fishing
Salmon are pound for pound one of the strongest, fastest fish in the world and on the west coast we have lots of them! Our offshore salmon trips start up in May and go right through until September, fishing Canada's largest runs of chinook and coho. Our inshore trips start in August when the big ones come in. We fish the rocks and islands close to shore alongside some of BC's most spectacular scenery.

Bamfield Halibut Fishing
Halibut are some of the biggest and most powerful fish you will ever catch, not to mention one of the tastiest. Halibut fishing offshore can be fast and furious, and when you hook into one of these monsters be ready for a battle! Our halibut stocks here on the West Coast of Vancouver Island are among the healthiest in the world, and we send 90% of our guests home with limits.
West Coast Nature Adventures
Barkley Sound is a playground for anyone interested in the outdoors. There are lots of things to do, both on the land and on the water, and most guests say they didn't have enough time to do everything.
For landlubbers there are lots of great hikes in the area, ranging from a 20 min walk to Brady's beach, to 4-hour day hikes, to a 6-day trek of the legendary west coast trail. There are several beaches and some great tide pools to discover, old-growth trees to marvel at, and the charming town of Bamfield to explore by sea-side boardwalk.
For those who want to get out on the water and see the marine life of the west coast, we offer trips to the Broken Islands and whale watching tours with our resident marine biologist. If you would like to try your hand at fishing, setting prawn traps, or maybe going ashore and exploring you just let us know! Kayak rentals and scuba diving charters are also available, and you can call or email us for the details.
