Guided Fishing

Tofino Resort + Marina offers saltwater charters for halibut, tuna, 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. From float planes to helicopters to a luxury, offshore vessel, we have multiple ways to get your crew out wherever they want to catch whatever they like. We can 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. Our fleet is second to none, and you’re guaranteed an unforgettable time when you let us take you fishing.

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 for more information.
