Tofino, originally a surfers paradise, is a relaxed, casual place to unwind and get back to nature. The outstanding beauty which has captivated adventurers for centuries has now been recognised as BC’s first United Nations Biosphere reserve. Stroll for hours along the peaceful and pristine nearby Long Beach and McKenzie Beach.
Explore the boardwalks leading from the beaches through unspoilt cedar rain forest to discover secret coves. Hire boards to go surfing or book one of the professionally run whale watching, fishing, kayaking, sailing and adventure tours. Visit the superb craft shops, museums and galleries or just sit back, relax and watch the ebb and flow of the harbour traffic.
The Tofino and Ucluelet area celebrate the Pacific Rim Whale festival from mid March to mid April, when the Pacific grey whales migrate from Baja, Mexico to the Arctic Ocean. Some 20,000 whales pass close by and can be seen from the shoreline.
