Guided Ocean Fishing

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.

Anticipation has been building. And yes, Tofino Resort + Marina is excited to host the 2nd annual Race for The Blue Tuna Shoot-Out after a hugely successful inaugural year.  Come experience the excitement of the blue water and Pacific albacore tuna fishing while supporting a sustainable fishery in B.C.’s rarely-visited offshore paradise. Join us for a week of action from September 6th to 14th and discover the Pacific at its finest, out of sight from land with the vast blue below.

On September 7th, the action kicks off as Race for the Blue competitors speed out into the great big Pacific blue for classic tuna frenzy and rare encounters with wildlife like sharks, sunfish and dolphins.

The week-long event features a $25,000 grand prize, based on a four-fish aggregate score, and the wrap-up party on the 14th will feature live music and plenty of classic stories of the one that got away.
