This is a beautiful park north of Tofino that is only accessible by boat and is definitely worth a visit. The rainforest here is very majestic and lush.

Hot Springs Cove is accessible by boat or float plane. We were lucky with the weather out here on the 'wet coast' of Canada. The day was calm and cloudy. There were three of us in the party and we chose to fly in via...More

I would recommend to take one of the Hot-Springs-tours that are available through many tour-operators in Tofino or Uclulet, BC. They take you to the Island, on your way you will see whales, sea otters, seals, sea lions, and other wildlife creatures. When you will...More

Maquinna is my favorite place on Vancouver Island. After watching a group of humpbacks lunge feeding, our tour guide dropped us at the docks and pointed us in the direction of the trail. The trail itself was about a 20 minute walk on cedar planks...More
