Surfing, Hiking, Kayaking, Fishing, Beaches And More …
Tofino has a rich history and is one of the most beautiful spots to visit on the west coast. Once you visit this beautiful part of Canada, you will most likely come back. Many people visit once and then find themselves coming back to enjoy and laid back west coast lifestyle along with all the rugged beauty that Rainforest on the ocean provides.
Tofino has many great restaurants and services to make your stay comfortable, but Tofino also has many little walks and beaches that are passed up by people visiting. It is worth making time to visit the many beaches and take in the crashing surf along with the uncrowded beaches. Pacific Rim National Park is one of the favorite vacation spots along the west coast of British Columbia and starts about 10 mins outside of Tofino. There are three regions: Long Beach, The Broken Group, and the West Coast Trail. The park is well known for its lush forests and rugged coastline.

Storm watching November-March
By November the winter storm season in Tofino and Ucluelet and it usually lasts until February or March. Both BC locals and visitors from other countries are turning up every year from November to March to come and see some of 3-6 Meter (20 ft) sea hurling waves on the shore. Gale force winds reaching up to 70km an hour can throw massive 15 foot waves (waves don’t hit the shore at the same height as they are just a litte ways offshore.) Some of the best spots include Chestermans Beach, Frank Island, Long Beach and Amphitrite Lighthouse in Ucluelet.
