Growing up right here on Vancouver Island Brandon has been immersed in the outdoors his entire life. Raised steps from the ocean in Victoria B.C. Brandon has fished with his father and grandfather since he was old enough to be on a boat. After pursuing designations in both management and marketing, he’s spent the past hand full of years guiding out of beautiful Haida Gwaii. Brandon has now returned home to share his passion and unparalleled service standards with our guests.

Rick Taylor
Head Guide

Growing up locally in Port Alberni, B.C. Rick was born into fishing and a life long passion began. Coming from a long line of fisherman Rick spent his childhood commercial fishing with his grandfather. When he became old enough this naturally transitioned into guiding. Going on his 19th season Rick has guided every contour and tide line from Port Renfrew to Tofino. He takes his greatest pleasure in teaching others what has been passed down through his family. Rick’s love for fishing and his unmatched knowledge of Barkley Sound make him the best in the business and we are proud to call him our head guide.
