About Tofino Fishing Charters

The companies listed above will be able to provide you with a safe and memorable Tofino fishing charter. There are various charter options for you to choose from, with the larger companies able to host single or multiple boat groups. The smaller companies tend to run with one vessel - everything from a 17 foot open inshore craft for Fly fishing or light tackle, to a 30-plus foot covered fishing cruiser for offshore excursions.

Remote Freshwater Fishing options are available for the adventurous types, with Float Plane access streams and Lakes in some very pristine settings within Clayoquot Sound. Steelhead, Rainbow and Cutthroat Trout inhabit these waters, and are carefully released on all of these unique excursions. Bring your camera to help capture the memories.
We recommend that you use the fishing charter information above to find an operator that will provide you with the experience that you are looking for. If you'd like to let us know about how your salmon fishing trip went, please do send us an email with some pictures. We would love to post a picture of that big smiley that helped make your Tofino vacation memorable.

What you should Bring

While most charters are fully equipped, many guides welcome anglers to bring their favourite equipment along. Discuss with your guide or outfitter in advance whether your gear will be suited to your planned fishery. You should be prepared with Warm layered clothing, a Hat, Sunglasses, Sunscreen, Food and Beverages and a camera. For those prone to motion sickness, you may choose to take an anti-nausea pill well in advance of your fishing charter. For visiting anglers with their own boats, you can purchase all types of quality tackle, Fly gear and outdoor clothing at a fully stocked Fly & Tackle shop in Tofino.
