Journey boats are like diamonds. They aren't formed overnight, but they are worth the wait. Picked up on Friday, had it in the water Monday. Exceeded my expectations. Stability is amazing. People know the boat as I had a lot of positive comments. Thanks

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review, Colin. Cheers to many years of "fish on"! Enjoy your Journey ... πŸ™‚

Last purchase from you guys! Won't be seeing me again! My 9.5 Journey will last beyond my years and the beauty of it all is that it is portable enough to fit in the back of my 5' pickup box. Being a senior fisher it also provides a stable platform as I jump around between my fish bag and my fly box

Thanks Wayne, very happy that you are pleased with the boat! Enjoy the Journey ... πŸ™‚

After almost 2 years of owning, I could not be happier with my Journey boat. Exactly as advertised - well built, super stable and extremely roomy. It is just terrific to fish from. Love the removable / adjustable seat system. It rows well and moves at a fair clip with a 30lb electric motor. Worth every penny.

Thanks for dropping a review AJ! Nice to hear that you are enjoying the Journey ... πŸ™‚

I had been fishing in a 12ft aluminum boat for years, but finally switched to a 9-6 Journey. Best decision I ever made! The stability of the boat is fantastic, and standing to cast or to stretch after long hours in the seat is an absolute pleasure, even with two people in the boat. I really struggled whether to buy the 11-6 over the 9-6, but for my needs I made the right decision. While small in length, the boat has a surprising amount of room. It is very durable, and the welds have survived many pounding trips on rough roads. I purchased the rubber floor option, which I glued in, and this too has been great. The seats work well and are comfortable, the anchor mounts and external oar holders are fantastic, and in small lakes my electric motor does fine (max speed of 3.3 mph though). For medium sized lakes I found I needed a gas motor for longer distances (aka dead battery) and speed - a new Yamaha F6 has been ordered but not yet received, but I'm sure it will add to my fishing enjoyment. Rob has been a pleasure to deal with and I like supporting a local company. I highly recommend buying a Journey - built and sold in Kamloops by flying fishing experts!

Mr. Meeks it was a pleasure working with you! Appreciate you taking the time to leave a review and really hope to see you on the water next spring!

To be 100% honest, i already had a custom built 10’ john boat, but while searching for a jon boat for my sister , i gcame across the Journey Boat web site, I have been fly fishing for some 30 years now, and after looking at the design of a Journey boat, i advised her to jump at the chance to own one.
I was so impressed with the sleek lines , and the completely flat floor that, the next day i put my boat up for sale and ordered my own.
Dealing with Rob at Journey was an easy no hassle, no pressure experience . Although i have yet to put my boat through the paces, i can tell by the craftsmanship, and attention to detail , that i will be nothing but impressed.
I will leave my number, should anybody have any questions about my purchase , feel free to call John 604-218-4557

Thank you John, it was a pleasure working with the both of you as well! And wow, what a great offer leaving your phone number for others! Enjoy the boat and tight lines to ya ... πŸ™‚


We read and hear so much about fake reviews about products these days, but this review is 100% from the heart. Id like to take a moment to say my Journey 9'6" is by far the best fly fishing punt on the market. Unbelievably stable and easy to handle. You can't go wrong with one of these fly fishing punts.

Verified NOT fake news! Thanks Jaysen very glad you are happy with your Journey boat! πŸ˜€

Bought the 9-6. Well made, heavier gauge aluminum. Super sturdy in the water. The 9-6 has lots of room!. I can easily take myself and 2 others, Have had 4 people in there too, bit crowded, but works.

Thanks for the review Troy, enjoy the Journey!

I’ve been fishing in a junky boat for to many years now and over the last year, I was finally able to make a move on buying a real deal fly fishing boat. Of course, the first thought was a Spratley but upon searching for one I stumbled upon Journey Boats. I loved the idea of keeping my money in Canada and even better yet in BC. Rob, was fantastic to deal with and responded to my several questions and asks extremely quickly. The accessories that Journey has for these boats are really cool ( IPSS system in particular). Finally able to get it out for a trial run at a local lake and it performed beautifully. Cannot wait to get the new boat stink off of this thing and get some scales all over it. If I have to complain about one thing though is that the prices for the sticker upgrades are a bit crazy but if that is all it is I think you guys are doing pretty good. Thanks again, great boats you guys build.

Thanks for the review Pat! And yes thank you also for supporting local! It really does mean a lot to us, our employees and the community! Glad you're happy with the boat. Just so there's no confusion to others reading this, the boat comes with a Journey decal at no extra cost. The upgrade decals (Rainbow Trout Wrap/Fishing Girl/Fly Caster) we purchase externally ... and you're not the only one that thinks they are pricy! πŸ˜‰ Tight lines to ya ... πŸ™‚
