This is a great hike through the rain forest to the hot springs, but beware, there are a LOT of steps and they are slippery! The hot springs are awesome once you get there though.

Had the most amazing day as the boat trip from Tofino (booked with Whale Center) is excellent and the walk to the pools is easy. The springs are excellent but only if there are not too crowdy. We were only two couples + the guide. A real pleasure. Better than the spa (once you get accustomed to the smell). It is like being in your own bath at home. It was pouring with rain and it made the experience surreal. even when you get dressed you are still warm from the bath.
Guide said it gets very crowdy in summer and you probably would not be able to enjoy it. But if you want a hot bath with ocean view in middle of forest, that the place.
Take old shoes to bath with, a towel, food and water to drink. A bit pricey but worth doing it in winter :)
