Tofino’s legendary tuna tournament returns for 2021. For the fourth year in a row, Race for The Blue brings Tofino tournament fishing way, way offshore in pursuit of one of the fastest—and tastiest—fish in the ocean. And there are also some fun parties.
Pacific albacore tuna is a sustainable fishery located in B.C.’s rarely-visited offshore paradise. Join us for a week of action September 11 – 18 2021 to discover the Pacific Ocean like you’ve never seen it.
