Born and raised here in Tofino BC, Owner/Operator John Nikiforuk grew up fishing off the local docks of Tofino catching bull heads, snagging crabs, and of course winning the legion derby for biggest bull head! Later in his teenage years he was lucky enough to have an older brother with a boat, they would fish every chance they had!

John gives the upper hand with his knowledge and years of experience working on his families commercial Prawn and Tuna boat. Now as a Tug boat captain since 2006 and a sport fishing guide since 2007, here in the local west coast waters Johns marine experience is second to none.
