Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Beautiful beach. Great to walk when the tides out. Eagle souring adds a great dimension to the environment. Be aware of the tide schedule as it is a large change.

    this is a place where you can relax after a long term stress. you can breathe out all your stress pain and anxiety. Here, only you and the ocean before your eyes are real, Everything else doesn’t matter at all. It’s been a month since I have taken a break from my classes, works, and the only chance I have got, didn’t even think twice to have a long drive of 300km, just to visit this beach, and after a long, hectic journey I have made it here and it was worth it. Perfect place if you consider walking around, relaxing, surfing, sunbathing.

    Superb place, natural and a holy place for the original Natives.

    I was there many years ago, when it was not well known and transportation was by private sea plane, as it is still, but you can also charter a boat to get there if you want a special place indeed.

    What I liked best, is that you can select from the chain of the pools, the temperature you like, as cold as the ocean it flows into and as hot as the waterfall, because the spring is simply much too hot.

    Great place to watch the waves, sound of the roaring ocean wave after wave. Lots of surfers, tidal pools at low tide. Nice beach to sit and chill or build sandcastles with kids. Lots of room for dogs and kids to run amuck!

    This was tough but worth it! It took 2:30 up and about the same down. We have no hiking experience but fairly fit and able. Down was harder and a bit scary at times, we went fairly quickly with 1 stops and it still took as long to get down as up.
    When we got to the top we couldn’t see a thing, too much cloud cover. 20mins later it was clear. Well worth the hike for the view.
    The ground was very boggy at the bottom and slippery then going into a steep incline holding roots to help pull us up. Quite the adventure!

    Tofino is a piece of paradise. This tour was right up there, and we could not have been looked after better. Saw bears and a Wolf! Jazz looked after us superbly!

    A great day from beginning to end. Starting with a warm welcome in the centre before a trip with Manuel on the boat to the Hot Springs with some extra little ‘adventures’ on the way and way back. He was a great boatman and happily shared his fount of knowledge on the local area and wildlife.
    We were lucky enough to see sea lions, sea otters, grey whales and many spectacular birds- including eagles.
    A fabulous day- thank you!

    We did an early morning bear watching trip on a stunning morning, we were so lucky with the weather. But these guys were fabulous, a combination of Keith, Scott and Dave looked after our group. Friendly, knowledgeable, clearly very experienced and always respectful of everyone and everything in the surroundings. We watched two bears up close for ages. Unforgettable.

    We went on a guided tour of Clayoquot Sound and Meares Island on April 27th! It was our first time sea kayaking, and our guide (Jess) was an absolute gem and helped us through any tricky bits while providing enough mini breaks. Both of us are also extremely prone to seasickness, and I am relieved to say it wasn't an issue for either of us. We saw many seals pop their faces out from the water (so cute!), more eagles than we could count, and many colourful starfish and crabs. Having the chance to see wildlife without being on a loud large vessel was a treat in itself. We enjoyed the little Meares Island walk to the Tree of Life too, just watch your step on the boardwalk. We recommend wearing an outfit that is as rainproof as possible, and specifically keeping the cuffs of your jacket tight if it's cool out (the seawater will drip down from the paddle). I apologize for my (lack of) photography skills, and I promise the experience was oodles more magical than what my photos show.

    I had a great private Beginner lesson: Kaizac was knowledgeable about the conditions, safety conscious at all times, and had easily digestible instructions. He was kind and fun for the entire lesson experience , which made for a super enjoyable lesson. The wetsuit and gear was appropriately sized, and I barely noticed that it was a cold water experience at all - toasty warm the whole time.

    We took the 2,5hrs tour with the guide Laurence. The agency was easy to reach out, the staff is very professional and careful. The guide was very knowledgeable and fun and spoke 2 languages, making the explanation easier. The tour was rich of information. It was perfect!

    We booked the bear watch trip- it was fantastic. We were on a zodiac with a small number of other guests. I felt very safe. The captain/ guide was very knowledgeable and knew the waters well. We saw two bears, harbour seals, and an eagle. It was wonderful and a great excursion. I w

    Amazing experience from start to finish. Answered all our questions and more by phone, helped accommodate a few unique challenges and when we arrived in Tofino - the team at the shop were awesome. Loved that we just showed up at beach and suits and boards were ready to go! Theo the instructor was welcoming, informative, patient and attentive. Photos are great too! Everything was perfect - HIGHLY recommend!

    TJ took my husband and I out for a photography expedition when we first got to town and we had an amazing day. He was so generous with his time and knowledge and although I've been photographing for many years I still learnt a huge amount. He shared so much photography wisdom as well as local areas that we wouldn't have found ourselves and tips on what to do with photos in post production/ who to check out for inspiration online too. TJ was great company - super fun to hang out with and his wife kindly made us sandwiches to keep us going. Would highly recommend an expedition of any kind if you're looking for something special to do in the area.
