The community of Tofino
is located on the west coast of Vancouver Island, British Columbia. Situated
on Clayoquot Sound, at the northern boundary of Pacific Rim National Park,
Tofino is a relaxed, casual vacation destination; a place to get back to
nature and experience west coast British Columbia; whale watching, angling
for salmon, beach combing, sea kayaking, ocean vacations and eco adventures.
You can walk for hours
on Long Beach and experience the constant rhythm of rolling surf, the
power of a winter storm or the silence of a protected bay. Explore Pacific
Rim National Park and you'll find pathways that lead from the beach through
the rainforest to secret coves and beach caves.
The community can
provide opportunities for shopping, visiting craft shops, museum and art
galleries and watching the busy harbour. Just moments away, you can sail,
cruise or fly to Hot Springs Cove to bask in the natural hot pools and
can also take guided whale watching tours, nature and scenic eco adventures,
or guided salmon charters; or perhaps a sailing trip around Meares Island;
the more adventurous may want to experience sea kayaking around the islands
and bays that dot the west coast of British Columbia
Whale watching is
most rewarding during March and April when the whales are migrating from
Mexico to the Arctic Ocean. This coincides with the Pacific Rim Whale
Festival which also offers a wide range of other activities from crab
races to golf tournaments, concerts and plays.
Salmon fishing and
flyfishing in Clayoquot Sound are world famous. Take guided charters or
rent a custom built flyfishing boat and explore on your own.
Visitors can also
experience the rich native heritage of the area in the many Native galleries
and craft shops.
