About the Captain
As owner and operator of Chad's Coastwide Sports Fishing, Chad Calder carries on a family legacy. A lifelong resident of Port Hardy, he is also the son of one of the first fishing guides in Port Hardy. His father, Larry Calder, was among the first to take clients to some of the best fishing on the west coast.
Chad still has his father's original log book and a wealth of experience from lifelong immersion in west coast fishing. As a young boy, he saw his father bring home huge halibut and salmon.
He began fishing himself at 14 and conducted his first charter fishing trip at 16. He has more than 25 years' experience fishing for salmon and halibut in the Port Hardy area.
"Port Hardy and the surrounding area offer some of the richest sports fishing grounds in the world. Fishermen can hook various species of salmon and huge halibut. Our all-inclusive charters are designed for hard-core fishermen who want truly fantastic fishing - and comfortable accommodation."
"Fishing has always been a huge passion of mine and I enjoy sharing it with avid fishermen from around the world. For me, the sign of a great charter is getting the fish in the boat - and I and my family have a history of delivering the fish."
