  • Day 1: Travel to Tofino

    Once on Vancouver Island, head west to Tofino and arrive at your leisure. You can check in to the Tofino Harbour House anytime after 16:00 (4pm) at the West Coast Aquatic Safaris office (101 Fourth Street) where you can also confirm your scheduled excursions the next day. Once checked in, explore the dramatic waterfront of Tofino, or visit the small shops and restaurants around town.
    While on the way to Tofino, stop off and visit MacMillan Provincial Park‘s Cathedral Grove. It’s one of the most accessible places in BC to view ancient stands of Douglas fir trees, some as many as 800 years old.

    Tofino and the Clayoquot Sound provide a world class bird watching environment due to the nutrition in the soil within this protected habitat. Jump on a guided tour to explore the surrounding area and hope to see Bald eagles, Great blue herons, Stellar jays, Lesser yellowlegs, Black oystercatchers and more.
  • Day 2: Whale Watching Adventure

    Good morning! It’s your first full day in Tofino and it’s going to be exciting! Depending on when your tour is scheduled for (morning, mid-day, afternoon, or evening), you’ll gear up, charge your camera and prepare for your 2.5 hour whale watching tour. Tofino’s waters, known as the Clayoquot Sound, is the best whale watching location in the world as the waters are rich with food and you’ll get to observe these iconic animals in their natural habitat. Gray whales leave their wintering grounds to head north, often lingering near Tofino from March until late October. In the summer, Humpback whales often put on a show of breaching and crashing back into the waves. The tour is conducted from a specially-designed vessel with high, open viewing decks, indoor areas and washrooms. During your free time, do what the locals do and visit the beach. With a variety in the area, you can find the best spot for sand, surf, sun and storm watching. Nearby beaches include Chesterman, Cox Bay, MacKenzie, Wickaninnish, and Long Beach.
    In the summertime, local restaurants get pretty busy with tourists, so we strongly recommend making a reservation in advance. Some of our favourites are Shelter Restaurant, 1909 Kitchen and Wolf in the Fog.

    (additional charge)

    Tofino is a pedal-friendly place and is an ideal location to rent a bicycle and explore the area. The Multi-Use Path winds for 8.8 kilometres along Highway 4, connecting the town centre to the beaches, to the Pacific Rim National Park Reserve. Chesterman Beach at low tide also offers a nice 2.7 kilometre stretch of hard-packed sand, making for some blissful beach biking.
  • Day 3: Wildlife Cruise

    Spectacular views and burly bears await you today as you get to enjoy a 2.5 hour wildlife safari tour. You will be transported to Fortune Channel or Tofino Inlet at low tide, for an opportunity to view black bears foraging in the tidal pools as well as many other animals, like bald eagles, sea lions, harbour seals, and harbour porpoises. The adventure doesn’t end there! When you are not sailing the sea, strap on your shoes and venture off into nature to see widespread vegetation. Tofino and Clayoquot Sound provide ample hikes and nature walks to suit everyone, from the novice nature explorer to the seasoned hiker. Just a few minutes’ drive down Highway 4, you’ll find the Long Beach Unit of Pacific Rim National Park Reserve, offering several trails. Option to receive a guided tour.
    Thinking of enjoying the ocean views while sitting around a warm fire? Beach fires are permitted only on Mackenzie and Chesterman Beaches between 8 a.m. and 10 p.m. Contact the District of Tofino for more info on beach fires.
