Coastal Charters – Sailfish 27'

Coastal Charters have the keys to the seafood supermarket and are inviting you in! They are located in Tofino, Canada, and are ready to take you on a fishing adventure of a lifetime in this cold fishing paradise. Coastal Charters has been serving the east and west coasts of Vancouver Island for over 20 years and have become a marine and hospitality industry staple.

You can fish for Pacific Salmon or the massive Halibut, Snapper, Albacore Tuna, or the various species of Cod. Whichever trip you choose, you will have the best guidance, the best fishing gear, and copious amounts of fun. Coastal Charter crew says you have to keep your eye on the rod and stay focused as it makes all the difference and puts fish exactly where you want them - in the box!

Coastal Charters will take you out on a 28-foot Grady White offshore sport fishing boat powered by two 200 HP Yamaha engines, with a maximum cruising speed of 25 knots. The vessel is fully equipped with the best safety and electronics that make it a safe and productive fishing platform in the inshore and the offshore waters, no matter the conditions.

If you are taking a multi-day charter you will be pleased to know that your captain will hook you up with some of the best lodging options that Tofino has to offer – whether it’s camping, top-notch hotels, or other forms of accommodation. Just talk to him when you book your trip, and let him know your preferences! Every charter includes fishing gear such as rods, reels, tackle, lures, and fish processing at the end of the trip.

Coastal Charters run child-friendly and family friendly trips. They are able to accommodate beginners and seasoned anglers. With a bit of luck and a positive attitude, Coastal Charters returns to the barn at the end of each day loaded up with critters and chrome. And their inclusive packages only require you to obtain a fishing license and get out of bed in the morning!

Please bear in mind the prices listed do not include 5% GST.
