From ocean floor to mountain peak, Tofino holds natural wonders for everyone. At Tofino Resort + Marina’s Marine Adventure Centre, we are inspired by adventure. Want to freedive below the surface and forage for your own dinner? We do that. More interested in whale watching or bear watching from the cozy comfort of our well-appointed boats? We do that too. Surfing, SUP, hot springs or fishing…we know where to go and what to do.
The Ultimate Adventure – offered year-round
Set out for a west coast adventure in your own private boat. Drop some crab traps on the way out, and depart on the quest to find whales, bears or fish in the wonderous waterscape of Clayoquot Sound.
