Had a great evening on the water with Kevin fishing for salmon. What I really like about this charter was that only the people that are with you are on the boat, no other groups. On our trip there was myself, my wife and son-in-law. You have the boat to yourself for the hours you booked it for. Kevin also... More

My husband and I, along with our three kids ages 9, 7 & 4, went out for a five hour fishing trip with Kevin. We had such a great time that we ended up staying out for nine hours and booked another five hour day as well. Kevin is a great guide and awesome with kids!! He started our day... More

5 of us went out with Kevin on a fishing/sight-seeing tour in February. (2 adults, 2 grand-parents, 1 12 year old girl). The day was beautiful, calm and sunny. Kevin was very knowledgeable and accommodated to all of us. The boat was very clean and we felt very safe with Kevin's experience. He took us out for 4 hours sight-seeing,... More

First of all, Kevin and his boat are nice. A group of us went out with Kevin for a six hour fishing trip which ended with six hours of no bites. We basically putted around with two lines out and fished the same area. Not sure what to say there, luck of the draw I guess. We thought that we... More

My husband and I, along with our eight-year-old son, went on a fishing/touring charter with Kevin in August 2013 and it was one of the highlights of our trip to Vancouver Island. The other review on Tripadvisor submitted by Q2SHOOT pretty much says it all: Kevin is a great guide and an all-around nice guy. The boat is clean, well-kept,... More

I had a bit of trouble convincing my wife to go salmon fishing while we were on Vancouver Island, but in the end she agreed and off we went with our son and his friend. I arranged over the phone the timing of our excursion with Kevin Zawislake, Owner and Guide of VanIsle Fishing and Marine Adventures. I was impressed... More
