Ozokwenza

First you must acquire a
“one day” Pacific fishing license for the day you’d like to fish crab. These are available online and you must have one to use my equipment (contact me for assistance). On fishing day we’ll meet in a beachfront neighbourhood of Vancouver. I will take you to the dock where I then give a lesson on baiting and setting your traps. You will also learn to identify your catch by species, size, and sex as It is necessary information to follow the legal parameters. I provide you with upto 2 traps each to use and I supervise as you set the traps. We soak the traps for a minimum of 15 minutes at which point you retrieve them under my supervision and we examine the catch. Once you are comfortable with the process I leave you alone to fish at your own pace. When you are finished (stay as late as 4pm!) for the day the traps will be prepared for storage and collected by myself. Any legal crab you catch are yours to keep. You’ll be targeting two species: Local Red Rock Crab are not available commercially and have some of the sweetest meat in their claws that you could ever eat in your life!! Pristine, Dungeness Crab are world renowned and the West Coast of North America is the only place to get them fresh out of the ocean!

Other things to note
It’s very important that you have the B.C. Tidal waters fishing license. You can’t catch crab without it!

Yazana nombungazi wakho, u Doug

Umbungazi ku-Airbnb kusukela ngo-2014
  • Ukubukeza okungu-72
  • Ubuwena buqinisekisiwe
On a 2012 coming of age road trip with my brother, my main goal here in Vancouver was to catch my own crab. We looked like quite the amateurs our first day on the dock and accordingly caught zero crabs! After great advice from those in the know and years now of experience, I still learn something on every pull of the trap. It’s such a simple endeavour but there’s always something new to learn and you never know what will be in your trap when you pull it up!
Ukuze uvikele ukukhokha kwakho, ungalokothi uthumele imali noma uxhumane nabantu ngaphandle kwewebhusayithi ye-Airbnb noma i-app. Funda kabanzi

It's our first time in Vancouver and we couldn't have chosen a better experience! Would give it 10 stars if I can! Crab fishing was amazing! Doug showed us everything we needed to know and even told us additional info about crabs and crab fishing. Highly recommend this experience!

Great experience in Vancouver! Doug is very knowledgeable and super easy to talk to. We stayed there until four and got a couple crabs that are big enough to take home (with Doug’s help). Crabs are delicious!

Our experience with Doug exceeded our expectations! He was personable and knowledgeable about all things crabbing and kept the energy light and fun. Would highly recommend this experience for tourists or locals who are looking to learn the ins and outs of crabbing in Vancouver (it's so much more beginner friendly than we realized!) and have a relaxed time doing it. If you're lucky you might even catch a crab big enough to take home!

If this helps, we bought our own crab traps immediately after our session with Doug! Crabbing is a bit like watching a baseball game where you don't have to pay attention at all, until you want to - generally very chill with moments of exhilaration. Doug was a great instructor, we learned lots from his experience. Would definitely follow him on other marine adventures!
