Went out with a crew of friends in the week leading up to my wedding and it was a first class experience. Lochie is a top notch guide and a great guy to spend a day with to boot! The salmon we hauled in tasted great a couple days later at the welcome BBQ--a perfect way to welcome our guests... More

Lochie of Tofino Fish Guides took my son and I out on a 1/2 day charter. Prior to the trip his communication by e-mail and phone was excellent, answering our pre-trip questions. We had a productive morning of fishing (4 large salmon and a halibut) followed by a surprise "catch" at the end of our trip. Lochie checked his crab... More

We had an absolute blast with Lochie! This was my 1st trip with him but, I assure you, it won't be my last! His professionalism, skills and equipment are world class and, more importantly: He is a world class, genuine, human being! I have had the pleasure of fishing with some of the greats in this industry over a 30+... More

At the end of August 2015 I returned for a fishing trip in Tofino BC, Canada. I rented a small motor boat with a very experienced skipper, Mr Lochie MacKenzie, of the FTG, Tofino Fish Guides organization and went for two days off in the Pacific Ocean. Fishing was truly excellent and the experience very rewarding. Mr MacKenzie is very... More

We certainly didn't catch our limit but we also had lots of action right with some wild coho and other fish during a six hour trip. In total we manage three Chinooks, a Coho, and a halibut as well as keeping some crabs. Fishing is seldom entirely predictable, but I thought that for a morning trip this service offered by... More

I've fished with Tofino Fish Guides 3 years in a row. We get our limit each time and most importantly we have a great time seeing the beautiful scenery of Tofino BC. Lochie knows the waters, fishing trends and reaches the best spots safely, quickly and comfortably. His boat is new, fast, safe and comfortable. He's professional, experienced and a... More

We had a fantastic afternoon on the water with Lochie. It was tough slugging at first but he found them. Everyone caught at least one nice sized salmon (not allowed to keep the chinooks close to shore at this time of year), we saw a bear, a couple bald eagles while we trolled and a small school of harbour porpoises....

Great day out, Lochie put us right on the fish and we had our first Chinook on the line less than 30 seconds after lines were in the water. Caught our Chinook limits in just a few hours. Great guide who knows how to find the fish!

We fished with Lochie for two days in July. Great experience. We caught a lot of fish and Lochie was very helpful both in the boat and with some other arrangements. He is very professional, knows the area and knows how to find the fish. Happy to recommend his services to anyone considering a trip to Tofino and looking forward... More

We only had one day to fish in Tofino, but we were SO glad to spend it with Lochie! He is an incredibly knowledgeable, professional, and awesome person, and his guide operation is second to none. I would absolutely recommend anyone to use this guide service. When we come back to Tofino, we'll definitely be return customers with Lochie! OH,... More
