About Us: Meet your professional fishing expert

When you book a Tofino Fishing Trip with Chinook Charters, you will be fishing about the custom designed thirty foot Motor Vessel Hook'em with Local Skipper Mike Hansen.

Mike was born and raised in Tofino in a family of nine children. Mike has been fishing the waters around Tofino and Clayoquot Sound since he was a kid. Mike's passion for fishing turned into a professional guiding career in 1987.

Mike's expert skills and in-depth knowledge of the waters and our area are made obvious by the many customers we have who have returned to fish with us for salmon and halibut year after year.

Mike especially enjoys the opportunity to introduce fishing to those with little or no experience. You will have a "Hands On" experience running the gear yourself. Mike has a knack for helping new anglers to feel comfortable and confident on the waters and with the fishing gear very quickly.

By mixing up the day of fishing with exotic wildlife and Scenic Tour of Clayoquot Sound we can offer a versatile tour packages.
