Captain Mike BELLIS

Your Captain

As a member of the Haida First Nation, Captain Mike Bellis has a strong connection to the sea. He has been operating boats, fishing, and harvesting seafood around Vancouver Island and coastal BC his entire life. For 14 years, Mike lived and worked at a private fishing lodge on a remote island in Desolation Sound, where taking guests out fishing and on wildlife cruises was part of the job. His passion and enthusiasm is contagious, and it’s his goal to make sure you have a safe and unforgettable day out on the water.

Captain Mike is a Transport Canada certified vessel operator, and is trained in marine first aid.

Haida Gold Ocean Adventures Boat

The Boat

You will spend your day on the water aboard the Haida Gold, a 30ft Mainship Pilot RumRunner II. The unique east coast style features a wide beam for stability, and a spacious covered cabin to protect you from the elements, allowing for maximum comfort. Two cushioned bench seats, a first-mate chair, and two optional fold-out chairs for the back deck ensure that everyone in your group has a comfortable seat. There is a fully enclosed bathroom in the lower cabin, a galley equipped with all the supplies you need to enjoy an on-board picnic, and a stereo to plug in your favourite playlist.

We are fully outfitted with top-of-the-line fishing gear to ensure you have an unforgettable sportfishing experience.

Haida Gold is a Transport Canada certified commercial vessel and is equipped with all the necessary electronics, life jackets, and safety gear to ensure a safe voyage.
