Coastal Charters


Our business philosophy is centered on providing Tofino fishing charters, marine tours, adventures and experiences that are the pinnacle in customer service and professionalism. If you are looking for things to do in Tofino then look no further. More than just a tour operator in Tofino; we are technicians at delivering the ‘ear-to-ear grins’. Coastal Charters will always go that extra distance to ensure you are completely satisfied or just downright over the moon with your chosen Tofino activities. We relish in helping our guests to create memories for a lifetime and that is our primary drive behind making sure every little detail is handled before you have stepped into the deck of our Grady White boats. Our fishing charters and marine tours are seamless, friendly and efficient and whether on or off the water, below or above the surface, we always have our guests, our planet and Tofino, British Columbia at heart. 


When you step onto the deck of our Grady White Sailfish or Grady White Marlin you know you’ve made the right choice to hit the water with us. We offer two of the largest vessels available in the Tofino fishing fleet, a 27 foot Grady White Sailfish, along with a 30 foot Grady White Marlin. We can carry up to 12 guests on our largest vessel and based on the unique ability to have large capacity groups onboard Coastal Charters might be the right fit for your needs.on top of that our boats have stand up washroom facilities, full galleys for preparing food and drinks, and sleeping quarters. (We don’t suspect you will be doing much snoozing while your riding with us) Outfitted with the latest advancements in technology with Lowrance GPS, sonar, radar, communications and safety equipment you can relax while on the water with us. All of our engine power has been updated with modern, fuel-efficient Yamaha four stroke engines that provide a reliable, smooth and quiet ride.  When it comes to guiding or fishing Grady White boats are one of the top industry standards on either North American coast because of their spaciousness, comfortability and, when required, protection they offer from the elements. Failure isn’t an option when fishing or touring out on the Pacific Ocean and our vessels are tried, tested and true so why take chance?


We buy local whenever possible and supporting West Coast suppliers of fishing tackle and fishing gear like Scotty Plastics, Islander Reels and Gibbs Delta is part of that mantra. Scotty manufacturers some of the toughest electric downriggers for salmon trolling on the market, Islander Reels are a crossover of artisan and commercial fishing equipment for the guiding industry used for trolling and mooching for salmon and other species of fish, and Gibbs Delta produces some of the most consistent and dependable fishing lures and fishing tackle available on the market. All of our trolling gear for salmon and bottom fishing gear for halibut or cod are equal or better than the industry standard and we wouldn’t have it any other way. We strive to make our Tofino fishing charters bullet proof just like our fishing gear. From the best in fishing tackle to safety equipment and our Grady White boats no expense has been spared to insure maximum satisfaction of your Vancouver Island fishing charter.


Receiving industry recognition and accolades is an overall testament to our guest’s satisfaction with the services being offered at Coastal Charters. Our crew takes on the responsibility of holding a high standard and level of care for you during your tours and these efforts are being mirrored in the responses and feedback we receive on a daily basis. Thanks to all of our guest, past, present and future!
