enjoy a hot soak in the springs and wildlife viewing along the way


Hot Springs Cove


Due to the ongoing Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic the Hot Springs Cove remains closed until further notice. At this time no pre-bookings are accepted for this tour.


This 6-6.5 hour day trip will give you a deep impression of the beauty of Tofino’s West Coast and its wildlife.

A 1.5 to 2 hr boat-ride will take you to the remote Hot Springs Cove, located in the Maquinna Marine Provincial Park. Hike a 2km Boardwalk through the impressive rainforest with its old growth trees. The trail will lead you to the springs where you can enjoy the geothermal pools, the waterfall and the incredible view of the ocean. Have a relaxing bath in the hot water (42C) or a refreshing bath in the cool ocean water. 

We also get the chance to watch wildlife along the way to the springs. Sightings may include whales, sea lions, seals, sea otters, bald eagles and other sea birds. It is a great bonus to this trip and we are always excited to see which wildlife we might come across.

You get all in one trip: exciting wildlife, impressive rainforest and relaxing hot springs.
