For thousands of years, fishing has been the lifeblood of Clayoquot Sound. Tofino Resort + Marina offers saltwater charters for halibut, salmon, lingcod and tuna, or amazing freshwater steelhead and trout in our picturesque rivers. Begin the day by dropping crab traps in the harbor and heading to the current hot spot for salmon and halibut. Enjoy the beautiful coastline and wildlife viewing on the way to the ultimate Tofino sportfishing.
We pride ourselves on searching for the perfect fish to provide a fresh dinner experience while still maintaining a sustainable harvest level. After all, we want dinner for future west coast trips as well. We can smoke your catch of the day, help facilitate the process of icing your fish for travel, or the talented team of chefs at 1909 Kitchen will #CookYourCatch for dinner and cap off a legendary west coast fishing day on our waterfront patio. We love fishing. We want to share our love with you.
