North Shore Charters offers the best experience in the San Juan Islands. For first-timers to pro-anglers and families with kids of all ages. We have something for everyone. Our trips are designed to be fun and educational. Our goal is to not just take you fishing, but to teach you how to fish. Our boats are outfitted with all the top quality gear and very comfortable with a restroom on board. Our Captains are professional and offer over 25 years experience fishing in the San Juan Archipelago. They are also quite personable, but they might just smell a little fishy.
We offer open-boat and private, custom charters. Let us know what you are looking for and we can create a trip specific to your needs. We can accommodate groups of all sizes, although the limit for each boat is 6. Trips depart from all ports in the San Juan Islands.
We offer 3 - 6 hour Private Charter Sport Fishing and Wildlife Excursions throughout the San Juan Islands that are customizable to fit your needs. Just ask. We also offer limited Open Boat Charter Fishing options if you don't mind sharing.
Travel Time - Since we are already in the San Juan islands it doesn’t take much travel time before we’re fishing – Never more than 30 minutes from our home port of Deer Harbor on Orcas Island or 45 minutes from Friday Harbor or Roche Harbor on San Juan Island.
Often times we are fishing in just 10 minutes from Orcas Island.
In the San Juans the most common methods of fishing are – trolling, drift fishing, mooching, casting, or bottom jigging, depending on what fish we’ll be targeting.
All Bait and Tackle are Provided
We use all top of the line Avet, Shimano, Okuma, and Lamiglass gear, and are suited for any type of fish you may find in the San Juans. We use frozen bait usually Herring or Anchovies, and a variety artificial lures. If you have an old betty that works for you, bring it along.
It is our policy to set the departure times based on the tides, which change day to day. When there are two potentials for the respective day, we choose the optimal tide, and time of departure, a day or two before the trip date based on current results to give our customers the best opportunity for success. Unless at the time of booking a specific time is requested.
We would love to hear from you! Send us a message with any comments, questions, or scheduling concerns. We will get back to you soon.
