Our local area waters are watched by other boaters, the RCMP Marine division, and the DFO surveillance sources. It’s just sometimes better to hire a fishing guide and then relax and fish.
Most guides are professional skilled and trained to know their job. Most professional guides are Transport Canada licensed and commercial insured. We study hard to know the regulations and stay informed in the commercial development of the regulations of our industry.
