Welcome to a new way to fish Tofino, British Columbia!
Tofino BC is one of the best fishing destinations on the west coast of British Columbia. Fishing opportunities span our entire rental season (April to October and include Halibut, Chinook (King) Salmon, Coho (Silver) Salmon, and several other salmon species.
The Fishing Boats:
We rent out the kind of salmon fishing boats that WE want to fish from. These are really nice boats that are built to handle the west coast of Vancouver Island. Our boats are fully equipped for self-guided fishing (you bring the rods & tackle) with the latest engines and electronics to make your fishing vacation a pleasure. Check out our growing rental fleet of fishing boats.
Our Ideal Clients
Our ideal clients are moderately experienced Salmon & Halibut fishermen who don’t own a boat, don’t want to hire a fishing guide or fishing charter operation, and want to fish the waters of Tofino BC. Our clients would rather self-guide the boat and call the shots. In other words, our ideal clients are a lot like us: Guys that love fishing and boats but can’t justify the expenses or hassles associated with owning a “west coast capable” fishing boat.
How it works
We are a “self towing” operation. Our boats live on trailers and can be taken virtually anywhere on Vancouver Island from our base in Port Alberni. If you have a suitable SUV or pickup truck then you can easily pickup one of our boats from our Port Alberni location and tow it to Tofino.
We believe that our rental rates represent excellent value for your fishing dollar. Our rates are approximately half of a guided trip and you get the boat for an entire 24 hour period instead of 8 hours with a guide. We are significantly less expensive that guided fishing charters and MUCH less expensive than owning your own boat! Check out our very reasonable rental rates or get a quote.
