What You'll See & Experience

Guests on our Hot Springs Cove tour will travel approximately 26 nautical miles from Tofino through the inlet waters or open ocean of Clayoquot Sound towards Maquinna Provincial Park. Throughout this 1-1.5 hour journey (each way) guests often have the chance to see the various whales that frequent our waters including Grey Whales, Humpback Whales, and Killer Whales. Along with whales, guests will also likely get to experience bald eagles, seals, sea lions, sea otters and other marine life in their natural habitat. Once arriving at Hot Springs Cove, a 30-40 minute boardwalk hike allows guests to soak in the mystic surrounding of the rainforest before relaxing in the natural thermal pools for a couple of hours.
