Captain & Guide

Pete Wright

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 a Certified Tidal Angling Guide through the Sport Fishing Institute of BC, and an accomplished angler with 40 years of fishing, boating and water experience. I have guided and extensively fished near and far off places that include the salt and fresh 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.

Vancouver Island fishing tackle manufacturer for Coastal Blue Adventures, fishing Nanaimo BC

Catch and Release - Give Away

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. 

***approximate value of $400.00***
