The Ultimate Tofino Adventure
We've combined some of the most spectacular itineraries that Tofino has to offer into one memorable experience—the Ultimate Adventure!
The Ultimate Adventure offers a private, custom, VIP excursion for your family or group. The Ultimate Adventure is where we craft your day as you wish—whether you want to fish, visit Hot Springs Cove, or find foraging black bears. We can combine fishing, wildlife, Hot Springs, scenic touring, and the freshest seafood feast you can imagine! You will have your own charming, and knowledgeable Captain (who is also a French trained chef!!), and a private vessel fully equipped for delicious excursions. The Miss T Eyes comes with a BBQ and kitchenette.
Itineraries are very flexible, but we suggest departing our docks in the early morning and enjoy a majestic journey along the inside passage to Hot Springs Cove Provincial Park. Hike along the wilderness boardwalk and marvel at ancient old growth forests and a remarkable array of flora and fauna along the way. Take your time and enjoy a relaxing soak in natural geothermal springs overlooking the breathtaking Pacific Ocean. Let the warm waters of the springs relax your soul and prepare you for the next adventure. We try to leave Hot Springs Cove long before other tour operators depart on their scheduled trips to ensure you have the most intimate and enjoyable experience possible!
After a rejuvenating soak, rejoin your vessel and depart on a full day of marine adventures which may or may not include:
Sport Fishing / Gourmet Feast
Head out to do some fishing for salmon, halibut, lingcod, or snapper. Tofino’s bountiful waters offer fantastic action for all skill levels. Haul in a catch of fresh fish to enjoy later that evening or enjoy a calm water BBQ. Crab and prawns are available seasonally if you want to make it a seafood feast to remember! If not fishing, you can add on a delicious, pre-packed lunch.
After a morning full of adventures, set off on a wildlife safari for the duration of the afternoon. Grey and Humpback whales, sea lions, sea otters, and a multitude of other marine life offer spectacular viewing opportunities. Feel the mist of a whale’s breath, scout for elusive coastal wolves, marvel at the grace and beauty of a sea lion colony, and wave at rafts of friendly sea otters as they frolic over the seas. We can also build an itinerary around the low tide if you hope to watch local black bears foraging along the shoreline. Our guide is also an expert naturalist and we promise you'll enjoy one of the most memorable wildlife encounters of your life.
