Top Notch Experience - Guide and Gear! Chris is the MAN. He's clearly a master fisherman and we limited out with some really great Chinook as he gave us all the responsibility we could take on (as somewhat, but not terribly experienced) but no more. The boat is also more comfortable and suitable for a day on the water than many of the others we saw. We'll definitely be back

Picked Outsider at random off of the web and it was like winning the lottery! Chris was a fantastic captain and host on a clean, well equipped, warm and comfortable boat for our five hour fishing/whale watching trip. The four of us are still talking about it. There were even whales! Highly recommended, and thank you Chris for a great day. Looking forward to perhaps a longer trip next time.

Bucket List Day. The boat was clean and comfortable. Chris is a knowledgeable and hardworking guide. We landed 6-7 chinooks and several coho’s. When the fish aren’t biting Chris is a wealth of knowledge about the area

Unforgettable! We're hooked! My family spent two days on the waters with Outsider Charters. Caught fish, saw orcas sea lions and gorgeous scenery. Chris is a great guide, very knowledgeable about fishing in the region. His boat is spacious, comfortable, tidy and clean. Fishing rods easy to handle, even for first timers. His expert guidance and personable way helped us catch some nice fish.. Looking forward to repeating the experience.

Non-stop Action! Non-stop fishing action! I lost count of how many fish I landed! Made my Chinook quota before noon. I released some awesome fish with a big smile on my face and learned something from the 2 that I let get away. From the scenic natural beauty to the dolphins surfing our wake home, an incredible day! Chris, my Guide at Outsider Charter is totally dialed in - WHAT AN EXPERIENCE!!

Best fish guiding on the Salish Sea A day with Outsider Charters is a day well spent. I've been on a few fishing trips, but this ranks the best. Excellent knowledgable guide who has time and focus on you and your needs. Comfortable extremely clean boat with excellent fishing equipment. Great knowledge of local area to take you to some of the most beautiful and secluded spots around. We caught large salmon with no one in secluded beautiful spots. And saw dolphins and humpback. Chris is convivial, humorous and a first rate fish guide. If you want to have a fishing adventure of a lifetime, use Outsider Charters.

Great fishing experience! What a fun day! It was my first time fishing, and Chris patiently talked me through the process of reeling in a beautiful spring salmon - a keeper. The boat is well-equipped and comfortable, and Chris is knowledgeable and it's obvious he loves what he's doing. Another highlight was that we saw a humpback whale. A perfect day out on the Salish Sea.
