Our classic West Coast fishing adventure.

With some of the most ample, consistent salmon returns on the west coast of Vancouver Island, Nootka Sound and Esperanza Inlet are world-renowned for incredible angling between May and September annually. Huge annual salmon returns mean that we have excellent retention limits!

Tours can accommodate parties of 1 to 4 guests with 2 to 3 rods running. Full day trips are 10 hours dock to dock and depart at daylight. A delicious, filling onboard boxed lunch is included with full day trips. No experience is necessary. Fish in comfort and safety aboard Transport Canada Certified vessels with certified guides trained in advanced marine aid. Onboard washroom facilities. Rain gear is provided to guests out of Nootka Sound Resort and Newton Cove Resort. Tidal Water Sportfishing License is required.


Guided Albacore Tuna Fishing Tours

  • 1-3 person: $2300*

An experience of a lifetime!

Target the elusive Albacore tuna during the annual tuna run in August-September. A small annual window of opportunity emerges around late August and early September where Albacore tuna are within reach of our vessels. Our Marine Operations Manager and Pro Guide team closely monitor weather conditions, water temperature, and clarity up to the morning of planned departure. Tours depart in the morning around daylight and depending on tide movement, the tour can run for up to 10 hours. Some saltwater angling experience is recommended.

Albacore tuna fishing is an incredible experience that can take anglers up to 30km offshore. Your safety is our utmost priority. Albacore tuna trips are designed as traditional salmon & halibut tours with an ambition for tuna if conditions are perfect. Tours are subject to variables including accessibility and specific weather conditions; in the event that tuna fishing is unattainable, the trip will proceed as a traditional salmon & halibut tour. Multi-day tours (4-5 days) increase the likelihood of success. A minimum of 2 boats are required for safety. Packed onboard lunch is included with full day tours. Tidal Water Sportfishing License is required.

*$1800 CAD/Salmon & Halibut tour in the event that tuna fishing is unattainable.
