I am staying in Victoria for a few days and really wanted to get to Tofino to see some bears. Only thing is that I didn't fancy the six hour coach trip or driving. I guess that leaves flying or as my only other option. Would anyone be able to recommend any companies that do these flights. Any help appreciated.
I don't think there ARE any companies that fly there. There is no Airport in Tofino. Maybe Harbour Sea Planes? Harbour Airlines...
PS. You are not all that likely to see bears no matter where you go. Not more likely in Tofino than victoria. i have been on this Islan all of my life and seen two bears once One the road to Victoria from Port Renfrew this year. After 25 years!!! One siting and it is more than most people get. bears don't like people and they tend to avoid them.
If you DO see a bear be careful. PLEASE do not try to approach it!
