As we were complete newbies in the fishing department, Frank and Brenda were wonderful and knowledgeable guides to our family with two teens. We lucked out with a warm and sunny day and even in the quiet moments, we could enjoy the beauty of our surroundings. As Frank pointed out, fishing is 90% boredom and 10% panic. Although we were...

Frank was a fantastic guide for our fishing trip. We (my two boys and me) were initially scheduled to head out at noon - we went out, but the winds and seas were a bit rough for us, so Frank took us back and we tried again later that afternoon. We went out again at 4:30 and had a great... More

My friend and I brought our 2 kids out for a fishing trip with Frank and Brenda and had a great time. They were extremely knowledgeable and the kids enjoyed catching their first fish and pulling up the crab traps. We will definitely book with you again next year when we are in Parksville! Thanks again for a memorable trip.

It ended up being a beautiful day fishing with our 9 year olds and we caught lots of Salmon. Frank and Brenda are very nice people who are very... More

Took my grandkids fishing with Frank and Brenda and can't say enough about how hard they worked to make sure the boys caught fish and had a fantastic experience. This outing was the highlight of our trip to Parksville. The boat is clean and well outfitted with safety equipment and the gear needed to find and catch fish. And Frank... More

Once again I thank Frank & Brenda for a wonderful experience. Such a good team. The fireworks were spectacular, especially with the moon right behind them - and one only gets that view from a boat. Don't forget to bring a camera ;-) Highly recomment iCharter & Tow

As an avid fisherman who has chartered trips from Vancouver to Panama, I was thoroughly impressed with i Charter & Tow. The vessel was well equipped with all the latest gadgetry and gear with an emphasis on safety. The morning charter proved successful but more importantly, Frank & Brenda made it FUN! Their knowledge of local waters, tales of the... More
