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 2014. 

  Logging over 1000 shifts on the water since beginning this journey in 2009, 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. Although I only charter May through September, we can be found 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.
