September 2016 was the 7th time we have gone fishing with Paul and Castaway Charters. Paul's knowledge of the are and local conditions is unequalled and results in catching our allowed daily limits. The boat is solid and comfortable and with 4 licenses on board the value of the fish caught exceeds the charter cost. We will be using Paul... More

Fishing in Ucluelet with Castaway Charters will not disappoint. Paul's boat is exceptionally comfortable and roomy. His experience is unmatched and he always finds the fish. Each time we have fished with Paul, we have went home with enough fish to last until the next season. The cost of the charter is less than if you bought the fish from... More

Paul is a great guy. He's easy going and he put up with all the questions I asked about fishing technique and so on. We caught lots of fish, in fact, more than most of the other boats around us over the course of two days. Paul seems to be friends with just about every guide in Uclulet and was... More

My friends and I just got back from two-day fishing trip this past weekend. This is the second time I've gone out with Paul, and both times have been phenomenal. Paul is a knowledgeable and entertaining host, who made every effort he could to keep our lines in the water as much as possible. Last year's trip, his son came... More

I had the pleasure of going out with Paul on his 32 foot boat with my father in-law on August 15/11. We met Paul at the dock at 5:30am where he was doing a safety check on his boat and was ready to take us out. When we started out he went over the new halibut regulations and explained some... More
