Fishing Guide, 60 ton Transport Canada Captain, Marine Repair Technician, Life Long Mariner.


Adam Watson

Your Captain and guide, Adam Watson, is a full time Tofino resident. He has lived and worked on the ocean since the day he was born to seafaring parents onboard a 65′ classic tall ship. Life aboard the Providence, built 1903 and sailed home from Denmark in 1978 by the Watsons, was always adventurous and provided ample opportunity to hone his fishing techniques along the many coastlines of their travels. After eleven years of a mix between Caribbean cruising, chartering on the BC coast and freight hauling under sail, Providence was converted to a commercial salmon packer to ply the waters between Alaska and the Fraser River.

Adam, his wife and two daughters now live aboard their own 44′ sailboat year round in the waters of Clayoquot Sound. After guiding locally for five seasons, he launched Tofino Fishing Adventures for the 2015 fishing season. Read about the company vessel that Adam renovated over the winter with nothing but guest comfort, safety and pure fishing efficiency in mind. He is a journeyman Marine Repair Technician and a certified 60 ton/40 passenger captain. He is passionate about this coast, and looks forward to sharing it with you.

Come on out and enjoy a days fishing with Adam – you are in competent hands!

Adam took three of us out fishing and what an amazing day! We reeled in fish after fish, everything from halibut to salmon and were astounded by his knowledge. Lots of laughs, some good conversation and definitely lots of fun. I can’t recommend him highly enough. A fantastic day!
