My group of friends went on 4 different excursions from ocean fishing for Salmon/Halibut, mountain lake fishing for cutthroat trout, whale watching, and spectacular hot springs leading into ocean. Each outing was better than the last as captains/guides were extremely knowledgeable about all wildlife and were always looking for ways to exceed our expectations. Front end office was excellent, with awesome staff and great storefront available for any additional needs. This company is by far the best in Tofino, and for that matter, anywhere I've traveled for outdoor adventures. Equipment and watercraft were outstanding for every outing and staff is dedicated to insure a wonderful experience for patrons. I'll definitely be back again-thanks O.O.!

Ocean Outfitters definitely delivered. We saw grey whales from a distance, but the best experience was when a grey whale was under our boat and came up right by the motor. We could have touched him. We also saw bald eagles and sea lions. What an experience. Thank you, Trevor. You were a wonderful guide.

We travelled all the way to Tofino just to go on the Ocean Outfitters trips, so our expectations were very high. We took two trips - the whale viewing and the bear viewing. They were both fabulous - everything was so professional: well-organised, very safety conscious, with guides who are so knowledgable.

Of course the wildlife is wild, and can't be relied on to appear on cue, but the guides know the area so well that they ensure you get great sightings. as well as whale and bear we also saw sea otters, seals, eagles, puffins....

And as a Brit what I also appreciated was that what you paid was what it cost - there was no one expecting a tip as well

My group enjoyed 3 days of fishing, 2 with guide Josh who was fantastic and 1 with Brody who was equally great in finding fish for us to catch. On another day we went whale watching and also visited the local hot springs which was a real treat! Ocean Outfitters is a well run business with an attention towards detail and making sure all their guests have the best experience possible.

I went to Hot Springs Cove with Ocean Outfitters on a rainy, miserable day, but it was still a great trip. In the office, everything was quick and simple, professional and friendly. On the water, Captain Travis was quite exceptional, both in his boat handling and as a tour guide.
