Brin was an excellent captain to our group of 3 for our first time fishing in the Pacific Northwest. He worked with us in every way possible to make sure we had a great day out fishing. We caught a nice Coho Salmon early in the day, and some massive Lingcod later in the trip. He had great equipment on the boat that helped us hook some huge salmon in deep waters. Brin made sure we got our fish home to the states by any means necessary. He worked with me and my family to making sure it was the easiest process for us. He was an incredible host and I would recommend him to anyone looking to have a great day on the water near Vancouver island.

Thanks for coming to visit us up here and taking the time to leave your review. We were really happy about everything working out for our trip and you guys were great fun out there! Hopefully you’ve got that Tofino bug and we will see again next summer and have a crack at those salmon that got away on us!
