This week on the water

We are planning to re-open our accommodation and fishing operations June 1st. This is in step with the Tofino Chamber of Commerce and Tourism Tofino's current recommendations and will be contingent on the Province of British Columbia lifting the non-essential travel ban. We expect the initial phase to be domestic travel and look forward to the reopening of the Canadian border in the near future. We do have good availability and will be rolling our early season package pricing into June. We are looking forward to some great fishing as a result of reduced efforts so far this season. Please call of email for details. info@tofinofishguides.com

Check out a photo of the first Halibut of the year on our Instagram @tofinofishguides Calm seas, light winds, and sunny skies set us up for a great day offshore. We anchored up and it didn't take too long before the first halibut was sniffing around our gear... The first one was too big but the second one was just right at about 45 pounds.

We had a great trip yesterday and came back to Tofino with a batch of nice big Spot prawns and a number of Dungeness crab. Our guests decided to take some of their fresh seafood over the the talented Chefs at the 1909 Restaurant next to the dock for a custom 'Cook your catch' meal. On top of that we were fortunate enough to watch a pod of transient Killer whales feast on a Sea lion that they had captured... While we don't see that everyday you never know what you might come across out on the water!
