Chesterman Beach  (6 Answers)

Hi--I am thinking of visiting Tofino in May. Will Chesterman Beach be crowded at that time? I am considering renting a Chesterman Beach cabin. I am looking for solitude and quiet.

Thank you

I will be in tofino oct 4 -8 and want to see bears. Is it too late in the year to see them in Clayoquot sound or barkley sound/ Broken islands? I was going to take one of the boat tours. I have been told they go upstream, so if this is the case, where could i see them? Also, is it a good time of year to see seals and sealions and whales?

driving one way to Vancouver Island  (2 Answers)

We're returning to Vancouver Island and would like to try flying to Tofino this time to somewhat shorten the long travel day from eastern USA. We still want to drive back to Vancouver International because the drive is so beautiful, but can't seem to find a car rental willing to do a one way even with a surcharge. Someone must have done this before, haven't they?

May Tofino Trip

A Buddy and I are thinking of going to Tofino on the May long weekend to do some sea kayaking. I was wondering if anyone had some information on good guides, routes, places to stay. We would like to stick with day trips and head back to a cabin at nights.

Tofino's weather/seasons/birdwatching and Botanical Bay  (4 Answers)

Good afternoon! I am planning to take my elderly mother, who is an avid birdwatcher to the west coast of Vancouver Island, either in October or next March or April. I want to avoid the high season prices and the crowds. I was in coastal British Columbia a couple of years ago in late October, but it was VERY rainy. I know how variable the weather can be in that region and the rain isn't a problem for me, but older folks get cold and cranky. Is early October a better time than March or early April for the drizzly wets?

I was to Port Renfrew and Botanical Bay much further south and to me that was as close to paradise as I have ever experienced. Is Tofino and the Long Beach area that beautiful? Any suggestions?

Thanks a million!

Accomodation for 10 and surfing rental deals?  (3 Answers)

Hi there,
I'm looking to accomodate up to 10 people in Tofino. I'm invisioning a cabin with a kitchen and fireplace. Looking to stay for 3-4 nights in late August/September 2006. Doesn't need to be posh, just clean. I'm thinking30-60/per person per night- if that's possible.

We will be surfing during those days. Are you aware of any surfing companies that offer deals for groups of 8-10 people (I'm thinking 1 class on the first day and 2-3 days of rental)?

Thank you kindly for your help!

two days and one night in Tofino  (1 Answer)


We are a group of about 5 people planning to come to Tofino around 22nd-23rd of July. We plan to go surfing for sure. And as of now we plan to stay in "Whalers on the Point Guesthouse". However, I was wondering if there is any place in Tofino or close by where we can camp right by the sea on a beach. Any comments/help is highly appreciated.
