Offshore & Inshore Fishing Rates
Salmon, Halibut, Lingcod & Rockfish Fishing Charters
Venture out with your private party aboard one of Clayoquot Venture’s fully equipped, professionally guided and certified 25-27 foot offshore fishing vessels. Chrome bright Chinook and Coho Salmon, as well as powerful Halibut and Bottom fish make up the bounty of these unforgettable excursions. The Tofino area is situated on the migration path of most major Salmon runs, along with a vast underwater shelf that provides ample baitfish and habitat for Halibut, Lingcod and Rockfish. We’ve been labelled as one of BC’s most consistent fisheries and these Tofino Fishing Charters are our most popular by far! Perfect for all anglers, regardless of age or experience!
Late June, July and August are considered peak of the season for Fishing, Weather and general Tourism in the Tofino area.

With 5 offshore vessels in our fleet, we can accommodate bigger groups like wedding parties, bachelor(ette) parties and corporate functions. If your group requires more than 4 vessels, we will use one of our trusted, local contract guides to aid in accommodating bigger group sizes. Booking well in advance is highly recommended if more than one vessel is needed.
We strive to connect single anglers with other interested parties, creating an opportunity to share a fishing charter and the great experience we offer.

Saltwater Fly Fishing and Light Tackle Fishing Excursions
Experience an exhilarating battle with truly “Wild” Pacific Salmon, while enjoying the scenic and pristine landscape of world famous Clayoquot Sound. Clayoquot Venture’s 22 ft. inshore vessel “Power Play” is perfectly suited for fishing, fly casting or bucktailing the near-shore “Hotspots” among the islands and reefs that create prime habitat for aggressively feeding Salmon. The protected waters of Clayoquot Sound are considered one of BC’s most desirable inshore fishing areas, playing host to over one hundred runs of transient Chinook and Coho Salmon each year. This exciting light tackle gear fishery is combined with Saltwater Fly-fishing action for those interested. Just let us know that you want to mix it up and we’ll be happy to provide this great combo experience for you!! Nearly 100% of the Fly patterns that we use for these Saltwater Fly-fishing trips are custom tied by our guide team, and are also available for purchase in our Fly & Tackle shop.

Eco-Tours and Family Fishing Trips
Our Coastal Marine Eco-Tours are perfect for families and those looking for a complete marine experience while on the west coast in beautiful Tofino, BC.
Enjoy a personalized and private introductory fishing charter focused on providing your group an interactive experience with Tofino’s coastal marine species and habitats. Witness nesting Bald Eagles, Sea Otters in the Kelp, Grey whales migrating along the coast and black bears that feed along the intertidal zones. Do all this on top of learning how we troll for Salmon and jig for bottom fish, then check the traps for Dungeness Crabs and Prawns. We can also break up the day with a shore lunch at Hot Springs Cove if that’s what you’re into!
The basics of Saltwater Fishing are explained and experienced on this fun and enjoyable charter, where catch and release fishing is not mandatory for all species, but fully supported by our guide team.
This protected water experience avoids issues with motion sickness, and is catered to your comfort levels and heightened interests. Whether your passion is the great opportunities for photography, local history, or getting up close to Tofino’s marine inhabitants, this private tour will help create amazing memories that will last a lifetime.
We can combine any of the following activities to ensure you get a chance to experience all this beautiful coastline has to offer!
- Fishing (salmon, halibut, lingcod, rockfish)

- Hot Springs Cove Visits
Rates and trip times vary from 5-10 hours in length and are based on your desired activities while on the water. It’s best to give us a call, let us know what it is you want to do on the water, and we will plan the trip accordingly!
While we do our best to find all species of marine and coastal wildlife, we cannot guarantee any sightings of any kinds, although most trips are successful in finding at least a few different species of wildlife.
