Hymax Charters

Hymax Charters offers private fishing adventures on the West Coast, cruising out of Tofino, BC. Their mission is to fill your cooler with outstanding catches and for you to have a memorable experience. Go exploring with them in the protected waters of Clayoquot Sound and the productive waters offshore!

Your trip will take place aboard the “Victory,” a 44’ Kipper Yachts offshore battlewagon. It’s hard to find a more comfortable, seaworthy vessel on the coast. She comes powered by twin 600 HP Caterpillar Diesels and can take you to the “honey holes” quickly and safely.

The Victory’s safety equipment exceeds the regulations: as well as all the necessities, there are two life rafts and a 12’ zodiac. Perfect for accommodating up to 12 guests, the Victory is fitted with a fighting chair, a flybridge, and a tuna tower for scouting. And this is not the end of the list of professional accessories and facilities aboard this comfortable vessel!

Hymax Charters begins their season in mid-Spring. The captain starts conquering the waters by trolling for Salmon and bottom fishing for Halibut. If you decide to test the waters during the late spring and the summer months, you will also be able to jig for Lingcod and Rockcod, and trap for Dungeness Crab and Prawns. Come fall the captain heads further offshore to hunt Albacore Tuna. If you’re one of those stubborn, die-hard Tuna enthusiasts who can commit to a long day on the sea, you will absolutely love fighting Tuna with Hymax Charters.

All trips come with rods, reels, and tackle. When you return to the shore, you will be able to have your catch smoked, vacuum packed, and shipped right at the dock, for a reasonable fee.

I've been a professional mariner for 32 years and a professional guide for 20 years. I've always made my living working on the ocean. One of the best parts of being a fishing guide, besides catching fish of course, are the people I get to meet and spend time with. People from all walks of life and from all over the world. It is truly an honour and a privilege to share my passion for the ocean and fishing with my guests.
