Guided Fishing

Tofino Resort + Marina offers saltwater charters for halibut, salmon and lingcod, or amazing freshwater steelhead and trout in picturesque rivers. We pride ourselves on searching for the perfect fish to provide a fresh dinner experience while still maintaining a sustainable harvest level.

Every year, both our Fish for the Future and Race for the Blue fishing tournaments raise money and spirits in the community. We love fishing and we want to share the love with you.

From float planes to helicopters to a fresh fleet of fly boats, we have multiple ways to get your crew out wherever they want to catch whatever they like. We can smoke your catch of the day, ice 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.

*Please note: The Department of Fisheries and Oceans Canada regularly updates the fishing guidelines and areas around our waters. You can check their website anytime for the latest updates here

Looking for an inspiring experience? Fishing is fun for the whole family. We offer family excursions or group bookings that show off the west coast, in style and from a boat. Make them remember the day of a lifetime. Email events@tofinoresortandmarina.com for more information.
