About Us

We are a family-run, locally owned business that has been operating on Vancouver Island since 1972. Originally, Trotac Marine was founded by Pete Thomson and his wife Chris.  What started as a marine supply store for Pacific Northwest commercial fishing fleets has since evolved into one of Canada’s most recognized marine supply store. Today, the company is run by Pete’s son, Campbell, along with his daughter Jessalyn and son Ben. With over 3 generations working to propel the business, it’s no wonder why Trotac Marine is one of the country’s most trusted marine suppliers and service providers.


With over 50 years of industry experience and technical expertise, we are proud to serve recreational, commercial and industrial clients. We provide marine supplies and repair services for the Royal Canadian Navy, Department of National Defense (DND), Canadian Coast Guard and the Department of Fisheries and Oceans. 

We also serve commercial fishermen, tugboats, fishing hobbyists, powerboaters, sailors, kayakers, RV and van owners with high-quality services and supplies.  
We have 30-year relationships with some of the industry’s most renowned suppliers and manufacturers. Our fleet of expert staff train regularly with our partners to ensure they always have up to date information and skills to share with our customers. 
We are proud to offer more than 50,000 products both in our Victoria location and online. No matter where you are, we are here to help keep you out on the water.
