Over the past 50 years Trotac has been known as the most trusted marine retailer on Canada’s West Coast in part due to our aim remaining true: we won’t sell you gear you don’t use, we’ll always make sure you have the right parts and know the right way to install it, and if we don’t have it we’ll help you find it.

Trotac is a true family business, founded in 1972 by Pete Thomson and his wife Chris Thomson as a supply store for Pacific Northwest commercial fishing fleets. After years of working at the family business, Pete’s son Campbell partnered with his dad to help Trotac expand. We are proud to service recreational, commercial and industrial clients as well as all three levels of Government. With Campbell’s daughter Jessalyn, and son Ben now involved, three generations have worked hard at Trotac ensuring we always provide the kind of service that keeps our customers out on the water.

In our new 20,000 square foot location, we’re able to keep more than 40,000 items from over 300 global suppliers instock, 6 days a week. We have 30-year old relationships with some of the best suppliers and manufacturers of the best products, and we train regularly with them to make sure our fleet of 18 staff experts always have the latest information and skills to share with our customers.
