Getting Here

For guests traveling by air we recommend flying to Vancouver Island and landing in Comox or Nanaimo. Victoria is the largest airport however it leaves a fairly long drive out to Ucluelet.

 

Located within the Pacific Rim National Park Reserve, visitors can fly through the Tofino Ucluelet Airport, located approximately 20 minutes from town by car. This is a small airport serviced by Pacific Coastal along with smaller carriers and charter flights. Tofino is the least reliable airport mentioned due to size and an often low ceiling.

Visitors can arrive by car by taking Highway 4 from Port Alberni. To plan your trip accordingly, we recommend visitors visit Drive BC for the lastest highway reports.

Activities

Sport fishing has been an ongoing interest for visitors and locals alike; our private tours will take you to our favorite local fishing areas, or charter our boat for a fun family adventure or private whale-watching experience. We operate twelve months a year and only book one group per tour.

Home to a diverse ecosystem of marine species, you can learn more about what lies beneath the surface of the pacific ocean by visiting the Ucluelet Aquarium.

Once you are back on land, you can access the Wild Pacific Trail at the Amphitrite Point Lighthouse and travel north along the Pacific coastline. The trail is accessible to all ages and designed to let guests experience the shoreline without disrupting the fragile environment.

Where to Stay

If you plan to fish as a group, check out our Fish & Stay Packages for the best accommodation deals!

We also operate vacation rental cabins, and although our bookings fill up fast in peak season, be sure to check out Evergreen Forest Cabins for rates, availability and more information.

Safety

They don't call it the wild west coast for nothing! While our captain prepares to keep you safe on the boat, if you visit any of our beaches, please read the signs!
The tides can change quickly, so it's important to review the tidal charts before exploring, observe the weather conditions before getting close to the shorelines, keep an eye on incoming waves and stay within reach of children when playing near the water. 

If you go in the water, remember, the Pacific Ocean is cold and the currents are strong!
