Tofino is a nature lover’s paradise with jurassic scenery, bountiful marine and wildlife, which makes this our most rewarding and exciting tour for all ages and families. Explore Tofino and the inlet of Clayoqout Sound well known as a common residence and feeding ground for orca whales (killer whales) passing grey whales, massive pods of porpoises, harbor seals that feast on treats from the cutting stations at the fishing docks, sea lions that battle fisherman for their catch while out fishing on the salt water, and roving packs of sea otters that dance and play in the calmer waters of the inside channels. Bring your camera and binoculars for this custom and private charter, sit back and relax as you enjoy the live nature show brought to you from planet earth. An endless array of bird watching is available for you to feast on including screeching bald eagles feeding on a rockfish in a treetop, ospreys cruising over the wave tops, marbled murrelets hiding out in the treelines, blue herons skulking around in the tidal pools in search of some small fish to slurp down and so much more. It is also common to spot a mama black bear and her baby bear cubs playing and foraging along the beach flipping rocks and enjoying a seafood feast. In a rare opportunity, you may be graced with a wolf beachcombing for lunch or cooling off in the sea while taking a swim. Every new glimpse affords unequaled views of snowcapped mountain, expansive ocean vistas, countless miles of untouched sandy beaches and shoreline and old growth forests that extend for thousands of miles. Visit and tour Freedom Cove a completely off grid and sustainable floating community in Cypress Bay designed as an artist’s retreat located in Clayoquot Sound.
Don’t limit yourself to being on the boat the entire time and double up your wildlife tour with an add on of Hot Springs Cove Adventure in the beautiful Maquinna Provincial Marine park located 20 nautical miles north of Tofino, British Columbia or visit Lone Cone for a hike up the mountain side where you will be blessed with breathtaking panoramic views of entire Clayoquot region or even a guided walk along the Wild Side Trail in Ahousat can be organized for groups hoping for more of a cultural experience. Exploring Clayoquot sound and its mysteries is always a fruitful endeavor and whatever we set out to see the day of your charter there are bound to be a few surprises as Vancouver Island is a wildlife and marine life buffet that will keep your head turning at each passing moment.
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…
