Our game is deep. We can catch on ANYTHING THERE BIT”IN ON! And we only use THE VERY BEST EQUIPMENT.

Haida Gwaii Salmon Fishing Boats  | Escott Sportfishing


Although we don’t receive the big open ocean swell from the west side of the Island the Dixon Entrance can be a cruel mistress, but she doesn’t have to be an uncomfortable one.

We use only top-of-the-line Grady White boats. They offer a smoother, drier ride and are built for safety, comfort and speed. These boats are custom equipped and rigged for inshore and offshore fishing.

Each boat is outfitted with Yamaha and Suzuki 4 stroke Outboard Power.
