Very highly recommend! We had the most amazing day on the boat with Brin and caught more than we ever thought we would. Brin communicated with us prior to our trip to make sure we were prepared for the day which was extremely helpful. Our guide knew where all the hot spots were, was very patient with the newbie and was very personable. He had given us the option to go to the hot springs but because the fish were biting we stayed on the water. While we were on our way to and from our fishing spots he made sure to stop for any wildlife. All around amazing experience and can’t wait to go back and catch more fish!
Myself and my two son’s have had yet another great fishing trip with capt’n Brin! This was our third time out with Coastal Charters and our third time catching Salmon of a life time! I am a Charter Captain at home in Hawaii and know what it takes to run a successful business and provide a memerable experience for guests. And that is exactly what Coastal Charters does best!! Thanks again Capt’n Brin for memories that will last us till next year when we return for another epic fishing trip!
Great day with Coastal Charters and our guide Brin fishing for Chinook just outside of Tofino. Although the day started off a little slow for us Brin changed up the tactics and we were able to get the hook on. Not only does Brin operate a safe boat but he brings a wealth of knowledge and confidence and I would recommend him to anyone looking for a guide on the water in the area. At the end of the day he dressed our fish and we were able to get the chef at the Tofino Resort & Marina to cook one of the salmon in their wood fired oven.
This was our second time out with Coastal Charters and again they didn’t disappoint! We took in the Hot Springs this time. It was our first time there and they timed it just right in the morning so we nearly had the springs all to ourselves; it was gorgeous and relaxing. We finished up with some successful salmon fishing. It was so exciting to spot plenty of sea otters and a grey whale on our way back to shore. I recommend Coastal Charters to anyone looking for a fun and relaxing fishing or sightseeing tour with an experienced and professional charter.
I spent two amazing days on this charter in Tofino with my Family! First Hot Springs Cove, then an amazing day Salmon fishing. Caught a beautiful Chinook! Captain Brin really made the trip special he was attentive, safe, informative and a lot of fun on and off the boat. I will definitely try this charter again! Thank you 🙂
Myself and 5 friends did the 6 hour tour to the hot springs. Brin was awesome to deal with leading up to the tour and made sure we had a great time despite the rain! We felt very safe and had a lot of fun. I had been to the hot springs once before with a different company and I would 100% use coastal charters the next time we go as this time was much more enjoyable! Thanks for amazing service Brin!
i have gone fishing with Coastal Charters for 2 years. The experience was amazing! Brin and Gary are very knowledgeable of the area and we were on the fish! Not only that, Gary pointed out the different marine life, porpoises jumping, sea lions, humpback whales in the area which he offered to take me to see so I could experience it. They are knowledgeable guys, fun, safe, flexible. They want you to have the best experience. I highly recommend!! Will be a returning customer next year!
Brin was great taking us 4 girls fishing…We had a great time, he was very accommodating… he also brought us to the hot springs and slowed down so we can see whales…thanks again Brin, great job, nice, clean boat…
Very highly recommend! Captain Brin was very knowledgeable, patient, personable and easy to communicate with before, during and after our trip.
The boat and gear were all top notch. The scenery is spectacular and we saw lots of bald eagles, a black island bear, tons of otters, seals and whales.
Happy to recommend this Coastal Charters to anyone and will be back soon!
I’ve been out a handful of times with Brin. His extensive knowledge of the local waters is a sure shot to catch a nice salmon, add that with his technical knowledge of fishing and you’re guaranteed to learn a thing or two as well. He also put down a crab trap before we started fishing, nothing beats a nice Dungeness before a BBQ’d Spring… Brin’s boat is perfect for a friendly group, he’s also got the tunes to attract the fish. Every time i’ve been on the boat with Brin it’s been nothing but a blast! would rate 6 stars but 5 is the max.
An experience to remember
If your looking for a fun time on the water look no further. We went out for salmon but unfortunately we had only one bite. That being said captain Brin knew a spot we could have lunch and pull in a couple of Lingcod. Not only that, he also had a few crab traps set for us. We may have not got that salmon but we didn’t leave with out a feast. Truly a master of the waters, can’t wait for the next trip.
An experience to remember. Our family of six, plus our giant dog, Cowboy, had such a special day with Brin! He was incredible – polite, professional, competent, kind, personable, patient. His boat was spotless. We combined a trip to the Hot Springs with wildlife watching and fishing, and Brin worked hard to make it all happen for us. We added a crabbing event at the last minute, which lasted late into the evening (we had met at the dock in the early a.m.),and we savored our evening crab bake the next night, using Brin’s recipe. I would highly recommend Brin as the Best Captain ever – get out on the water with Coastal Charters!
We went out on an 8 hour trip mid-August for a friends bachelorette and it was so epic. 6 girls total and our guide John took us in stride haha! (Even during a few moments of sea sickness in the morning.) We also caught some crabs, saw a few bears, eagles and a Sunfish! Would absolutely do it again and recommend to others!
Had a great time, 5 of us went for a 8 hr trip for my stag 2 days before my wedding! Guide Gary put us on the salmon and the action was non stop! Thx Brin and Gary for a great day on the water! I will be back for sure! Next time I’m booking 3 days! Thank you again
Myself and 3 buddies fished with Brin for 2 days out of Tofino. We all had a blast and will definitely look into re-booking for next summer, the guys want to make it a annual trip now.
My wife and I booked a tour with Coastal Charters for our honeymoon. We had a great time out with Brin, fishing on our way to the beautiful natural hot springs. We caught several fish and loved the hot springs experience. Two thumbs up! Thanks Coastal Charters for making our honeymoon adventure a memorable one.
Going out on the boat with Brin was memorable and relaxing experience. He had a abundance of local knowledge and determination to get us our fish- while still showing us huge consideration for the ocean and its marine life. It was a evening trip, so we also saw a Tofino sunset in the best way possible!
My partner and I were looking for a memorable activity to take my parent into during their first visit to British Columbia. After much time researching for the perfect fishing charter in the Tofino area we selected Coastal Charters mainly due to a referral from a local hotel. The front desk insured us that they had received only great feedback from customers that went on a fishing journey with Coastal Charters. My Dad had caught a 22lb Shinook salmon after a 10 mins fight. No word can describe the smile he had on his face. So fun that we decided to rebook for the next afternoon with Brin. Brin was very accommodating as we decided last minute on our second day. The day was Amazing, beautiful weather, lots of laughter and we caught 4 large and healthy salmons. Thanks to Brin and his team the weekend was indeed memorable as we still talk about today with our families and friends. I would strongly recommend Coastal Charters to any of our friends and family and we will certainly rebook again with Brin in the future.
