Coastal Blue Adventures Ltd.
Nanaimo, Barkley & Nootka Sound
Born from passion and the love for fishing, Coastal Blue Adventures Ltd. is owned and operated by Pete and Shann Wright. Perfectly situated on the shores of the Salish Sea, Coastal Blue Adventures operates year-round out of the Nanaimo Harbour. With two exceptional Mako boats, guided charters & marine adventures are available across the west coast of Vancouver Island with sport fishing packages now offered during the summer months in Barkley & Nootka Sound.
Drawn to the water at a very early age and with over 40 years of angling experience, Pete has guided and fished close to home and abroad including the salt & fresh waters of BC, Yukon, Alberta, North West Territories, Ontario, Alaska, Florida, Mexico, Thailand and Japan. “Growing up fishing with my dad has taught me that fishing is a culture and a way of life." Pete has been a Certified Tidal Angling Guide (CTAG) through the Sport Fishing Institute of BC for the past 5 years and enjoys spending more time on the water than on land.
Born in Yukon Territory and raised to love the outdoors, Shann’s adventurous spirit got her hooked on fishing, spending countless days exploring Yukon fresh water systems, cold Alaska tributaries, BC fresh water & coastal salt water. For the past 28 years, alongside Pete, Shann has honed in her fishing skills and has many beautiful catches to her credit. Grateful for the balance fishing brings to a busy life, Shann is happy to share her life on the water with others through Coastal Blue Adventures.
Pete and Shann ensure a remarkable experience when searching for salmon, ling cod, halibut and other west coast fish species. They are extremely excited for a future with the Gibbs Fishing Pro-Staff team. Feel free to reach out to Pete and Shann for the latest scoop on which Gibbs products are producing best for the Vancouver Island areas!
