Your Host, Captain & Guide

SilverFox Marine Charters Ltd. is owned and operated by Paul Barnes. Born and raised on Vancouver Island, Paul has always been passionate about the outdoors with a keen interest in being on the water.

Paul's first experiences in 1990, into the Alberni Canal and Barkley Sound, left him fascinated with the abundant marine life and its vast and natural scenery. Pauls work previously as a commercial diver in the aquaculture industry gained him a much deeper appreciation for Barkley Sound, its underwater ecosystems, environments and unspoiled scenic beauty the area provides.

Paul looks forward to sharing with you an unforgettable outdoor coastal adventure into the island's history and scenic backdrops.
