COVID-19 Response

Outsider Charters Inc. remains fully operational and is taking bookings for the 2021 season.

The health and safety of our clients and community is our top priority.  We want to make sure you fully enjoy your BC fishing charter and stay safe at the same time.

We’ve developed a COVID-19 Health & Safety Protocol in alignment with the guidelines set out by the BC Provincial Health Officer and the Sport Fishing Institute of BC. We will modify our protocols in step with our provincial government’s guidance.

Importantly, we’ve changed our deposit policy so you don’t have to be worried about trip cancellations due to COVID-19.

We’re here to make sure you can still have a great Vancouver Island fishing charter experience. Give us a call if you have questions or if you need more details.

The Province of British Columbia provides extensive information about its COVID-19 response online.  The Province also keeps an updated list of orders, notices, and guidance of the Provincial Health Officer.

As set out in our COVID-19 Protocol, we carry out personal hygiene practices and take measures to sanitize the boat and equipment between charters. 

Before boarding, for everyone’s safety, we will also ask whether:

  • you’re experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19;
  • you have, in the last 14 days, been in contact with with anyone who’s tested positive for COVID-19 or is symptomatic;
  • you or members of your household have travelled outside Canada in the last 14 days   
Our aim is to minimize the risk of COVID-19 transmission and provide our guests with as much comfort as possible.  As things like travel restrictions and provincial mandates are relaxed, we will change our approach accordingly — but always with a view to safety first.  

Your safety is our primary concern.
