Your Captain and Fishing Guide
Born and raised on Vancouver Island, Graham has spent his whole life on the ocean. Between fishing and exploring the coastal waters of Sidney and Sooke during his childhood to guiding the rugged north coast of Haida Gwaii in his early 20’s. Graham finally settled down in Tofino in 2021 to pursue his dream of owning his own charter company.
Graham’s passion for fishing is contagious and his easy going attitude along with extensive knowledge on marine species make him not only a great guide, but some pretty good company on the boat. When Graham isn’t out on the water fishing he enjoys surfing, wild food harvesting and spending time at the beach with his Border Collie, Anne Chovie.
We are dog frendly!
Dogs are always welcome on board. Some dogs are prone to getting seasick just like us so if you’re unsure of how your dog’s going to react it may be best to leave him/her home. If you don’t have a dog and would like some on board, let us know. We have an easy going border collie who loves to come out fishing and meet new people.

Everything you need to know before your Charter or Tour
What you’ll need:
