Hello adventure seekers, I'm very pleased to welcome you to Coastal Blue Adventures! My wife, Shannon and I take great pride in building & delivering an adventure that will be exciting and memorable. At any point during your visit to our site, please don't hesitate to call or email with your questions. Take a moment to follow us on Instagram and Facebook. Even better if you give a heart and a thumbs up.
I am an accomplished angler with 40 years of fishing, boating and water experience. I have extensively fished and guided in near and far off places that include the waters of BC, Yukon, Alberta, North West Territories, Ontario, Alaska, Florida, Mexico, Thailand and Japan. Now a retired member of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, my family and I are forever thankful we ended up on Vancouver Island exploring our coast. Come aboard and join Coastal Blue for an adventure that will leave you smiling.

Coastal Blue keeps up with the times, we provide all the latest fishing tackle, bait and safety equipment for your adventures. Some of the latest includes:
While we love catching, preparing and eating our various fish species, we are firm believers in a sustainable fishery. Please feel free to chose catch and keep or catch and release of your favourite fish species.
When Duane at Peetz Outdoors described that Duncanby Lodge release program, we were inspired to bring the idea to our operation. In support of Peetz, an historic Vancouver Island based fishing tackle manufacturer, we are excited to offer one of their remarkable wooden reels.
The thrill of the catch lasts a lifetime. Should you chose to release any 20lb+ fish with Coastal Blue Adventures, your name will be placed in a draw at the end of the season for a custom Vancouver Island made Peetz reel.
