Day-by-Day Breakdown + Descriptions

Day 1:

After checking into your accommodations, it is time to fuel up for the days to come. Pop by the private venue to sample some of the area’s finest fares.

Day 2:

Limber up for a private, 3-hour surf lesson at one of Tofino’s beautiful beaches. The place is Canada’s surf capital for a reason, after all. A certified instructor will have you paddling and popping up for the ride of your life on the coasting waves of the Pacific. From there you’ll have the chance to check out the beaches and waves you just surfed from above on a 30-minute scenic floatplane flight! Aftewards, rent a board and suit if you can’t get enough of the surf, or take some time exploring the rest of what Tofino has to offer.

Day 3:

Back into the water you go, this time no wetsuit required. Embark on a 2.5-hour kayaking expedition and get to know the local waters. A trained and knowledgeable guide will show you the ropes in Clayoquot Sound where you can take in the stunning coastal scenery, learn about the land and history of the area, and get to know about the animals that share the waters of the West Coast. Afterwards, it’s time to let someone else do the work on a 2.5 or 2 hour whale or bear watching excursion in a covered vessel or zipping zodiac.

Day 4:

The final full day brings with it the most work, but with what could arguably be the biggest pay off. Heading by boat to Meares Island, you’ll be able to see Lone Cone looming above. The 6.5km round-trip hike packs about 700m of elevation into the last kilometer in half. Once you arrive, however, you’ll have the eagle-eye view over Clayoquot Sound, the surrounding islands and the Pacific Ocean. It’s worth losing your breath over. 5 or 6 hours later, as the boat pulls away from the dock and heads to Tofino, you can start daydreaming about that well-earned beer as you look back at your accomplishment of the day.

Day 5:

It’s officially time to pack those bags and head on out from Tofino.
