Welcome to Thunder 1 fishing charters and adventure boat tours.
Our BC salmon fishing charters are based in Prince Rupert on the northwest coast of British Columbia, Canada. We also offer exclusive, luxury boat tours along BC’s West Coast from the Gulf Islands north through the Inside Passage.
Prince Rupert Salmon Fishing Charters
Unique live-aboard BC saltwater fishing trips for salmon, halibut, ling cod and snapper. Join us for Prince Rupert fishing and board your own private yacht for the fishing experience of a lifetime. The Thunder 1 will be your home while you enjoy our world class saltwater salmon and halibut fishing charters in the rich Prince Rupert fishing grounds just south of the Alaska border. Fish and feast describes our luxury salmon fishing charters in Prince Rupert, Canada.
Our Prince Rupert fishing charters normally span three to four days with our guests living and fishing aboard the M.V. Thunder 1. Doug and Deb Emery, your hosts (and experienced BC fishing guides), have spent years fishing and boating on British Columbia's West Coast.They are a wealth of information about the best fishing techniques and where the salmon are biting around Prince Rupert, BC.
Overnights are spent in peaceful anchorages close to the salmon and halibut fishing grounds so we can have the rods in the water first thing in the AM for the early bite.
BC Adventure Boat Tours & Whale Watching
From Alaska to Washington, we also offer a variety of live-aboard BC West Coast cruises aboard Thunder 1. All cruises are planned to accommodate your interests and can include whale watching, wildlife viewing and sightseeing. What do you want to experience?
Our whale watching tours (Killer Whales and Humpback Whales) take BC whale watching to a whole new level. Spend three or four days on Thunder 1 cruising inlets and coves on BC’s North West Coast viewing Humpback Whales and pods of Orca whales, wildlife and birds in their natural environments.
Accommodation for your Prince Rupert fishing charters and BC boat tours is aboard Thunder 1, a classic 52' Wahl Trawler. Wahl boats were a mainstay of the BC West Coast fishing fleet for many years and the Thunder 1 is a fine example of our Canadian West Coast heritage.
This touring and fishing boat was built from scratch as a pleasure boat; she is fully equipped with the latest in modern electronics and safety equipment along with all the comforts of home. We can accommodate up to 6 guests in two private forward staterooms with separate shower and washroom facilities. Please check out our Vessel page for more information about this unique trawler.
Your vessel and crew are Coast Guard Certified. Each year the Thunder 1 undergoes a rigorous safety inspection. She provides a safe, comfortable journey whether our boating travels take us salmon fishing, whale watching or touring.
