WHALES, BEARS, HOT SPRINGS. Adventure Tofino offers personal wildlife tours in small groups for an unfogettable wildlife experience! Enjoy a scenic boat ride on the calm waters of the Clayoquot Sound inlets to watch the Blackbears turning over rocks to feed on crab. Join us on an adventurous boat-ride out on the pacific ocean, in the search for the west coast's most majestic animals, the Whales. Relax in the warm pools of the remote Hot Springs. Our 26ft open Zodiac takes only up to 12 people, which ensures a more private trip. Ready for your Adventure? Tours in English and German.
