Charter Tofino

Come to Tofino in British Columbia, Canada and enjoy a day on the water as you create lovely memories fishing with Charter Tofino. Tucked away on the furthest reaches of the west coast, Tofino serves as the entrance to Clayoquot Sound, where the road ends and the adventure begins. Whether it’s heading offshore, staying closer to home, or simply meandering through the inlets and islets and gazing upon the natural beauty and wildlife,  Captain Kelly Aspinall’s got you covered. Join him and have an unforgettable fishing experience for your next vacation.

You’ll be fishing from a 31’ Northwest aluminum boat. This top-of-the-line vessel can accommodate up to 8 anglers, runs on two mighty 250 HP Mercury SeaPro engines, and uses full-featured navigation technology. The boat’s got a toilet, kitchen, and bed, it’s air-conditioned, and features an ice-box. Also, its fishing gear includes downriggers and tuna tubes.

On your trip, you’ll have the chance to target Salmon, Albacore, Tuna, Rockfish, Halibut, as well as Lingcod. To catch them, you can bottom and deep sea fish, troll, and jig. You can keep the fish you catch or you can simply release it, the choice is yours. Also, kids are welcome to join aboard.

You’ll have all the fishing gear waiting for you when you arrive. This includes all the rods, reels, tackle, as well as live bait and lures. Captain Kelly will also clean and fillet your catch if you wish so. You should just bring your licenses and some snacks and drinks.

Come aboard and have a great fishing time together with Charter Tofino!
