A celebration of west coast life-style which honours the bounty of our waters by giving back to the causes that support them.
Boat To Tailgate celebrates life on the West coast. For two weeks leading up to the event local sport and recreation fisherman catch a bounty of seafood from dungeness crab to fresh halibut, and wild salmon. On the night, local chefs from Shelter, Wolf in the Fog and Wickaninnish Inn join forces to create a delicious seafood buffet cooked on the dock at Trilogy. All proceeds from the event support wild Pacific salmon recovery efforts in Clayoquot Sound. Proceeds are divided between CWFS, Tofino Salmon Enhancement Society and the Clayoquot Biosphere Trust Wild Salmon Fund.
We will have a band / entertainment, raffles and prize winning opportunities (with prizes from local businesses), alcohol for purchase and consume on-site. The attention of guests will likely be on the food, which will all be caught by local sport fishermen specifically for this event, and prepared by the top chefs in the area.
