The Skipper

What Quinn MacDonald doesn’t know about fishing isn’t worth knowing. Together with his boat, the Hindsight, he’s the most sought after of Vancouver Island fishing guides, putting a lifetime of passion, enthusiasm, and expertise into creating outstanding expeditions for clients who come back year after year. Clients relish his humour and value his uncanny ability to provide just what’s needed at exactly the right time.

Quinn, at the age of 13 was drawn to the Port Renfrew fishing scene as soon as he saw the fishing fleet and the abundance of fish and wildlife it had to offer . He started working for John Wells and Hindsight Fishing and deck handed for 6 years every day with John before starting to run the boat himself at 18 years old . For the past ten years he and John shared the fishing trips . When John was forced to sell the business due to health reasons, he couldn’t handle the idea of loosing the boat he’d loved for so long and all the great clients he’d met over the years.  He decided to make the move and buy it!


To this day it’s about the people I meet and clients I have. That’s what keeps me in this business.
