My first experience at the Innchanter was in 2006 to celebrate my 39th birthday, it has now become my most anticipated time of the year. Upon my arrival I was immediately embraced with warmth and genuine hospitality as I unloaded from the float plane (this is a 15 min flight with Tofino Air, a must see part of the trip, some of the most specacular combination of mountains and shorelines in the world). My host, Shaun, was a man of great kindness and energic presence who's genuine mandate is to make you feel completely at home, he is a brilliant creative artist in the kitchen and enjoys the process of making your meal unforgettable. Shaun's enthusiasm is infectious when sharing his vast wisdom of the heritage and culture of the surrounding area. The experience of spending time at the Innchanter creates a space that allows you to; release and explore your inner playful child; and enjoy the romance and splendour of nature.
My magical experience continued to the anticipated Hot Springs Cove. We began with Shaun guiding (myself and other guests) by boat as we witnessed the bioluminescence chase behind us. We then set off by foot, continuing our journey through the magestic canopy of the over-growth forest, illuminated that evening by a full moon. The star filled sky welcomed us to the opening of the final destination, a roaring waterfall and three tide pools, creating a perfect evening of celebration and relaxation. A piece of paradise! This is an experience that should "never wait until tomorrow".
