Get off the beaten path and experience eco-tourism with various fun tours including:
Tofino Whale Watching Tours:
Tofino’s waters, known as the Clayoquot Sound, is the best whale watching location in the world as the waters are rich with food. In fact, the whales gain over 30 percent of their body weight while feeding in our waters!
Tofino Bear Watching Tours:
Our bear watching excursions begin with a relaxing 30-minute boat ride from Tofino through tranquil and sheltered inside passages by Meares Island, Fortune Channel or Tofino Inlet.
Hot Springs Cove Excursion:
You’re at the edge of the continent, backdropped by verdant rainforest with the wild Pacific Ocean beyond. Waves crash. Eagles soar. And you’re taking it all in from a sensuous pool of thermally heated rainwater— secluded natural hot springs in an off-grid park. This is Hot Springs Cove on Vancouver Island’s west coast. Spend six hours in a pristine Pacific paradise, enthralled by wildlife viewing, wilderness walks, a scenic boat tour and floatplane ride and, of course, relaxing soaks in a one-of-kind setting.
