  • The Hot Springs are a must see while you are in Tofino! They are in a very remote location, and you need to take a boat or float plane to go see them. But it is very worth it! The half hour walk in is...  more »

  • Beautiful hike to a great natural hot springs. Hike is on boardwalk and there are changing facilities at the springs.
  • Five seasonal ski instructors at the end of ski season looking for a challenging adventure and something new (inexperienced with tides and kayaking oceans coming from Alberta may I add ). We certainly experienced what became a spiritual ,and very challenging experience out of tofino , on this sea kayaking adventure during a storm with 14 foot swells against the tides and an encounter with angry lumberjacks (unknowingly tenting on their access road at Clayquot sound and unknowingly burning their cedar shingles ). Apart from a close encounter with a whale, cougar ,and , the RCMP meeting us at the Hot Springs fearing the worst , (the kayak rental store unbeknownst to us reported we left in rough seas ) As far as the overall four day experience being in tiptop shape ,bringing sufficient food and proper tents and supplies ,I really enjoyed this trip much more than taking a simple boat ride in . After reaching the spectacular destination ,I couldn't wait to see the hot springs in the morning so I walked on the path in the rain Forest and enjoyed a well deserved soak,after a long walk on the cedar sidewalk , with a moonlit walk back to the beach we tented on. I wouldn't recommend this way to the springs to everyone ,but as your boating in imagine the adventure your missing and perhaps you will appreciate the boat ride a little more ,and if your up to it , go for the adventure ,it was well worth it
