Tofino Fish Guides operates out of the Trilogy Marina in Tofino on the west coast of Vancouver Island in southwestern British Columbia, Canada. From the Tofino harbour, we are a 10-45 minute boat ride from a wealth of productive fishing grounds. Fly or drive to Tofino.


Whether it is offshore on the rich feeding grounds of the continental shelf or amongst the many stunning islands of Clayoquot Sound, there are always fish to be found in this area. Offshore, the Portland tack is one of the most consistent locations on the coast. Here ocean currents concentrate bait fish along a lengthy drop off, enticing migrating salmon to stop and feed. Only a 30-minute ride from town, this location allows us to optimize our fishing effort. Depending on the year, season and weather, we have a fantastic range of similar options at our disposal. In addition to great fishing, wildlife sightings are common and include humpback, grey and orca whales, sea otters, and wolves and bears on shore.

In addition to being a fantastic location from which to access world-class fishing, Tofino also offers visitors an array of restaurants, accommodations and activities that will complement your fishing charter.

Nowhere on the British Columbia coast can non-fishing members of your party enjoy such a variety of activities while the others take advantage of premium salmon and halibut fishing. Tofino is situated within walking distance or a short drive of Tonquin Beach, Cox Bay, Middle Beach and North and South Chesterman beaches. Pacific Rim National Park is situated only fifteen minutes south of town and is a great place to experience the northwest coast of Canada at its finest. Whether you enjoy a sunset with friends, taking a surf lesson, checking out a tide pool with the kids, or just relaxing in the sun, the west coast is a great place to be.

“Downtown” Tofino offers a fantastic mix of art galleries, boutiques, restaurants, pubs and coffee shops. Everything from scenic fights to ocean kayaking to nearby Meares Island is all at your fingertips in Tofino.

Nothing justifies a fishing charter to non-fishing companions like a day at the spa while you fish. With several fantastic spas in town, relaxing at the spa and bringing in the big one can go hand in hand!
