Captain Dan Kukat is knowledgeable and professional. An intuitive fisherman, his deep understanding of the sport runs straight through to his boyhood roots in one of the world’s foremost salmon fishing hotspots. Fishing runs deep in Captain Dave Powell’s soul, too: he heads to Desolation Sound each summer for a solid three weeks to get his fix!


Both of SpringTide’s fishing guides ensure the best fishing possible. Pack your bags and leave the wired world behind for a while. It won’t take long for peace and quiet – and some mighty fine fish – to find you.
