The boat ride was somewhat turbulent and definitely not boring! We got to see seals and whales. Our captain was very informative. Very sad what is happening to the forest!! The walk to the hot springs is on a boardwalk through the rainforest. Wear shoes that don't slip easily! It rained sporadically throughout the day so I would recommend a... More

The boat trip to get there is wonderful in and of itself. Great hike through the forest to get there (lots of stairs!). The springs were crowded, but everyone was friendly and chatty. Good facilities for changing, etc. I would advise wearing slip proof water shoes as the rocks are extremely slippery. There are 2 dogs that apparantly swim over... More

These hot springs are entirely natural, so you swim in unfiltered hot water, which is nice. The place, however, is very small, so at times it can be hard to even dip your toe in. For the price (usually around 120$), it's quite expensive, but if you can get a deal, then go ahead). Also, the ride to go there... More

Although the boat ride out to the hot springs was a little bumpy (take motion sickness pills and try not to be pregnant!), I made it in one piece, more or less. Fortunately, we went during off-season, so there weren't too many people at the springs. Once there, it was amazingly beautiful and relaxing. It was one of my more... More

We went to hot spring cove twice in the past couple years and we took both boat and float plant to it. I will recommend anyone to take the sea to sky tour so you got the best of both world. The boat trip shows you the wild life in the area and the float plane has such a breath... More

Brilliant day out, take plenty of drink and food, and watch out for slippery rocks, there's enough slippery rocks to spoil your day! Toilets are a little interesting too!

Even though we went on a sunny Sunday, we managed to find a quiet spot for lunch before walking to the springs. It was pretty busy, but it's a great place to chat with other people while you enjoy the springs. I took some jelly shoes and was glad I did-the rocks are really slippy. And the water really is...

These are pristine wilderness pools. After an hour boat ride and a 1/2 hour walk you may be delighted by a dip in the pools or you may be disappointed by the number of people who are there waiting to get in. It's all about when you go. If you want to visit this site on your own, without the... More

To be fair, a cold wet April day is probably not the best time to visit. We really enjoyed the boat trip, which was an adventure even if we didn't spot any whales or bears. The walk in to the springs was wonderful (and nicer still on the way out as we had plenty if time); walking through wet woods... More
