About Runaway Adventures:
We are a small professional salmon fishing and Eco Touring company located on Vancouver Island in beautiful Port Alberni, B.C., Canada. Port Alberni is well known as the Salmon Capital of the World and we offer world class Salmon fishing charters in the Alberni Inlet and Barkley Sound. We use only the best fishing gear on board our 28ft. Transport Canada Certified fishing vessel and can accommodate up to four guests comfortably. For larger groups, we can arrange additional boats and guides for a fantastic fishing trip.
The best Sockeye fishing, in the Alberni Inlet, is from mid June through to mid August and Chinooks (King/Springs) and Coho are abundant from the beginning of August through September in both the Inlet and Barkley Sound.
If you need your fabulous catch processed, packed and then shipped anywhere in the world arrangements can be made through St.Jean's Cannery and Smokehouse (stjeans.com) here in Port Alberni.
We also offer tours of the Alberni Inlet and Barkley Sound for those who just want to take in the sites of the awesome rugged beauty of Vancouver Islands West Coast. On your tour along with the spectacular scenery you may encounter a variety of marine life along the way, such as whales, seals, sea lions, black bears, and bald eagles.
