The Reel Deal
We take pride in our product, our brand and guarantee professional service, offer equipment of the highest caliber and some of the best guides on the west coast. Our goal is simple, we want you grinning from ear to ear from the minute you leave the dock and talking about your experience for months afterwards. We go that extra distance to make your trip first class and welcome requests of any kind. If we can accommodate whatever your looking for, we will. You always get more than you bargain for on the water with Coastal. Come and see what the West coast has in store for you!
Under the Surface
The West Coast is famous for its Pacific salmon runs and a world-class recreational sport fishery that’s available to eager anglers. Wild Chinook (King) Coho (Silver) Sockeye, Pink and Chum (Dogfish) are all available through varying months of the year in Tofino. Try your hand, or knuckles, at landing some these monster salmon! The big banks and fishing holes around the coast of Tofino, British Columbia offer up outstanding bottom fishing for massive halibut, giant snapper (yellow eye) and delicious lingcod. Offshore fishing is available for albacore tuna when in season and weather permitting. Pacific albacore are prized for their meat and texture and considered to be of sushi grade (meaning they can be eaten raw).
Kickback in first class and relax in style on our 27 foot Grady White Sailfish. The sailfish boasts twin 200 horsepower four stroke Yamaha outboard engines getting us to where we need to be quietly and efficiently. We have ample storage and seating on board the Sailfish and with a 9’6 beam the deck is wide-open setting the stage for battling monster salmon and halibut or snapping off some photographs at passing orcas or feeding grey whales. Grady Whites are a standard on the West Coast for offshore fishing. They are a heavy hulled boat providing ultimate stability in choppy waters. Our vessel is also ‘Blue Decal’ qualified. The blue decal program is a non-mandatory safety compliance program regulated by transport Canada and the Canadian Coast Guard. It ensures vessels and their crew meets or exceeds the minimum requirements whereas safety training and equipment are concerned. The blue decal program is just a small component of our ever-expanding safety program but big piece of insurance for our guests, crew and fellow mariners.
In the interest of creating an unforgettable trip and avoiding uncomfortable and unexpected situations we have a few suggestions for a hassle free experience. Weather can change rapidly on the coast and we encourage guests to come prepared with weather resistant clothing and footwear.
If crew members are prone to motion sickness it a nausea aid such as Gravel may assist in preventing this if it taken 24 hours or more prior to departure. (Please contact your local pharmacist for options appropriate for you).
