Whether you are looking for a Charter in Nanaimo to Ucluelet/Tofino we are your guides! Captain Jesse Sadler or Jonathan Skucas will be your guides, which allows you to benefit from years of professional experience.

It comes with downriggers, outriggers, and all the essentials no fishing machine can run without. There's a toilet on board for your convenience. Your captain will provide rods and reels, as well as lures. Before coming aboard, you'll need to buy a local fishing license for everyone in your group. This information is usually available online, or you can ask the captain. Some species may be off-limits or require a special tag, so make sure you know what to expect. Families who love fishing together will be glad that kids are welcome aboard! Be sure to ask if child-sized life vests are available.

Captain Jesse Sadler As a third generation fisherman out of Tofino. Jesse was raised to be on the water. From as young as 8 years old. You would find him accompanying either his grandfather, uncle or Father. As they set off in their commercial fishing vessel’s. Jesse would spend days and even weeks at sea. From Oregon all the way up to Haida Gwaii. While he enjoyed the experiences that commercial fishing offered. Jesse’s true passion is sport fishing Captain Jonathan Skucas Jon was born in Kamloops and raised in Ucluelet on the beautiful west coast of Vancouver island. Jon’s love of the sea and fishing started at a young age. Often you would find him on the beach. Flipping over rocks looking for crabs and other sea life. Along with tying up rafts, logs and other things to get him on the water with his fishing rod in hand. Even in a nasty storm if Jon saw a fish jump. You would find him casting for hours waiting for that one magical bite.
