Clayoquot Sound is a treasure chest of environmental jewels: from the glittering diamonds of sunlight dancing across the wavetops to the emerald velvet of old-growth rainforest carpeting the mountaintops. The rainforests of Clayoquot Sound are part of a larger 74,000 km-stretch of Pacific temperate rainforest along coastal BC.

Discover The End of The Road

Tofino is a place visitors and tourists come to see, and never want to leave. A beautifully small town Tofino rests on the edge of Vancouver Island’s west coast nestled near the heart of Clayoquot Sound. Despite boasting the best of what the nation has to offer you might find this spot irresistibly modest. From professional chefs and journalists to athletes and artists it’s no secret Canada’s crème flocks to this west coast oasis and with its rugged history, gentle soul and mercilessly stunning views. Tofino also doubles as a highly sought after tourist destination. Offering some of the best in high end luxury resorts (try the long beach lodge resort or the Wikkininnish Inn) and restaurants (The Pointe, The Great Room, Shelter and Wolf in the Fog, to name a few)

Guest Testimonials

  • "What a day out on the water with Captain Brin! Being a returning client I knew my friend and I would have a fantastic day and Coastal Charters made it happen... again!!!. The day started with Brin picking us up with his usual contagious smile. Once aboard the Estella, a real beauty of a boat, we set up to go fishing. As always we are provided with top of the line fishing and safety equipment."
