    Chad's Father Larry Calder with a Big SalmonAs a Port Hardy charter fishing company, Chad’s Coastwide Sports Fishing is continuing a family legacy. Captain Chad Caldergrew up in Port Hardy, where his father Larry operated one of the first fishing charter companies in the area. Chad still has his father’s log book and can apply two generations of experience to finding the fish.

    “I get a lot of repeat clientele because I put fish in the boat,” Chad observed. As shown by the photo of Chad’s father, right, catching the big ones is a family tradition. Chad grew up in a sports fishing home and conducted his first Port Hardy charter fishing trips when was 16. “Fishing and helping clients catch the big halibut and the big Chinook salmon has always been a passion of mine.”

    He developed all-inclusive fishing trips so clients could enjoy a fishing charter with the same convenience that sun-worshippers enjoy at all-inclusive resorts. “Chad’s Coastwide Sports Fishing is the only one who offers all-inclusive sports fishing charters. Once you set foot in Port Hardy, you don’t pay an extra dime for anything – it is all included.”
