Owner and Guide
Scott Nijman

 I have the privilege of inhabiting arguably one of the best offices found anywhere, period. Our local waters and rugged coastline are awe inspiring. Add one of the most consistent Chinook and Halibut fisheries on the west coast and Ucluelet is hard to beat.

Starting my career guiding the Northwestern tip of Canada, I slowly worked my way down the coast for a quick stop in Tofino, before settling in our little Town of Ucluelet. I've guided the waters surrounding the Pacific Rim since making the area home in 2013. 

  Logging over 1000 shifts on the water since beginning this journey in 2008, the ocean has taught and given me so much. As my life has evolved, my appreciation for time on the water has only grown. I enjoy sharing my passion for the fishery and marine environment with my guests and young family. When not chartering, I'm most likely to be found with my boys fishing and adventuring on the water year round.

Time is an invaluable asset in our world. Much preparation goes into every season, giving our trips a solid foundation to be successful. I am honoured by those that trust their time to me by stepping aboard.

Guide - Owen Rhodes

Born and raised in Ucluelet, I grew up running boats; fishing and helping my grandfather with his wildlife tours. I take pride in where I’m from and showing visitors the amazing environment I call home. Ucluelet is beautiful and has so many opportunities for adventure.

From a young age I knew I wanted to work on the water. In 2021 I finished my seamanship courses and started guiding fishing charters and whale watching tours. This is my third year guiding charters out of my home town, and I look forward to a welcoming guests for a fun and productive season on the water. Rest assured, when you book a trip with me you will have a safe, knowledgeable and confident guide at the helm. I look forward to sharing the seas with you.
