    Six hours out on the water where you will be able to make it further and fish longer. A better chance for more fish and multiple species. Or, you can split it up if you like by fishing when the tides are best and spend the rest of the time checking out wildlife and seeing the sights. The departure times may vary.

    This full 10-hour day of fishing is the best way to capitalize on your time in Tofino. Fish multiple species to help fill your freezer for winter. You and the captain can drop Crab or prawn traps on your way out to the open ocean. Then, depending on tides, you can work on catching some scrappy exhilarating Chinook Salmon or wrestle some large Halibut or Lingcod from the depths. Whatever you like, the captain can personalize your adventure.
