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 VIP excursion for your family or group. Depart our docks early 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 leave long before other tour operators depart on their scheduled Hot Springs trips to ensure you enjoy your time at the Hot Springs without the crowds.
After a rejuvenating dip, rejoin your vessel and depart on a full day of marine adventures:
After the springs, 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 big catch of fresh fish to enjoy later that evening. Crab and prawns are available as well if you want to make it a seafood feast to remember.
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 whales breath, 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. Our guides are expert naturalists and we promise you'll enjoy one of the most memorable wildlife encounters of your life.
