To be 100% honest, i already had a custom built 10โ€™ 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 ... ๐Ÿ™‚


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! ๐Ÿ˜€

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!

Iโ€™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! ๐Ÿ˜‰ Tight lines to ya ... ๐Ÿ™‚

I purchased my Journey in 2008 and after 7 years in a moment of weakness I sold it to my fishing buddy. The good news is he had it sitting at a friends ranch near Princeton and it wasnโ€™t being used. I reached out and it is now back where it belongs at my place, it will be plying the waters soon . This is a lifetime boat and Iโ€™m so happy to have it back.

You're a lucky guy Ken! Thanks for sharing your thoughts. We build them to last and we're glad it shows! ๐Ÿ™‚

Awesome people to deal with ,great product ,and a local business supported.

Thanks for the feedback Danny! It was a pleasure to work with you both!

I have had my boat for two years, very pleased with its fish ability and so far its durability. The gang at Journey is always very responsive. My only regret is not getting the 11-6, but these boats hold their value so I can always sell this and order up the bigger boat. Wouldnโ€™t hesitate to order this boat again

Thanks for the review John! It's always nice to hear from folks that have used the boat for a while and can therefore speak from experience regarding durability/fishabilty! We build them with fly fishers in mind and we build them to last! If you're serious about an 11-6 you know where to reach me ( ... I'm sure we could find a buyer for the 9-6 in about a minute!) ๐Ÿ™‚

I am very happy with the boat. I am not happy with the seats. I bought the upgrades seats and during the 2nd year one of the seams on one of my seats came apart. It has been stored inside my heated garage when not in use. I contacted Journey and was told sorry no warranty after 2 years on a seat. I expected the seats to last for many years. Only one has the flaw, obviously a problem with the manufacturer. I recommend buying the accessories from another source that stands behind their products. I have seen very nice seats at other retailers. I paid $270 for two seats with swivels and expected more value.

Thanks for the review Bart. We are glad that you are happy with your boat! On the boat seats the warranty is held by the manufacturer and that particular seat, which we no longer carry, only provided for one year. It is unfortunate that it failed after only 2 years. If you would like to consider replacing it with one of the newer seats that we carry please contact us and we will try to come up with something that works for you.
