Tofino Resort + Marina is excited to host the first annual, Race for the Blue Tuna Shoot-Out Sport Fishing Derby, September 7th – 15th, 2018 and we want you to join us. Come experience the excitement of the blue water and Pacific albacore tuna fishing while supporting a sustainable fishery in B.C.’s rarely-visited offshore paradise. Come experience the Pacific at its finest, out of sight from land with the vast blue below.
The event will begin the evening of September 7th, with a mandatory captains’ meeting at Tofino Resort + Marina. On September 8th, the action kicks off as the Shoot-Out competitors race out into the great big Pacific blue for classic tuna frenzy and rare encounters with wildlife like sharks, sunfish and dolphins.
The event features a $25,000 grand prize, based on a four-fish aggregate score, and the wrap-up party on the 15th will feature live music and plenty of classic stories of the one that got away.
