About your guides:
Ivan has been guiding in the Vancouver waters, BC Central Coast and the Haida Gwaii since 2001. He honed his fishing skills during his childhood while growing up in Steveston and learning the craft from the commercial fishermen. Ivan became an accomplished sports fisherman which naturally led to salt water guiding. In 2012, the BC Government developed the “Certified Tidal Angling Guide” program as a red seal trade and he was one of the first saltwater guides to earn his Certification.
Ivan has the government required SVOP, Med A3, Restricted Radio License and up to date Marine 1st Aid certifications.
Roy has been guiding all over the BC Coast for almost 30 years. Born and raised in Vancouver to a fishing family, guiding was a natural fit. Roy has fished this coast from Vancouver to Haida Gwaii and most places in between, and knows the geography and marine wildlife well. He holds all required boating & safety certificates and is a also a Certified Tidal Angling Guide. In addition, Roy guides steelhead fishing in the fall in northern BC, has guided in the Canadian Arctic and Bahamas, as well as fished all around the world for just about everything,
Both Ivan and Roy believe in the instructor style of guiding where they enjoy teaching their guests not only to reel in fish, but "how" to fish. Come learn how to rig up a variety of lures and professional techniques of proper bait presentation as well as boat handling skills.
