Things to Do

The stunning beauty and ecological diversity of the Clayoquot Sound UNESCO Biosphere Reserve is the source of most Tofino activities.
Storm-watching, fishing, bird watching, hiking, sightseeing, flightseeing, bear watching, ocean kayaking, surfing, whale watching and First Nations cultural touring pack a visit to the jewel of Canada's west coast.
Tofino actually invites travellers to sit through winter storms of withering ferocity. The storms roll in from Japan from November through February, 10 to 15 every month, pouring down up to 5m/15ft of rainfall.
View them from an oceanfront hotel or B&B. Or more adventurously from a sheltered outdoors location where polite conversation is drowned out by the wail of the wind and the roar of the waves.
