Welcome to Tofino
Plan For Fun-Filled Days
Prepare to be inspired by the wild. Tofino is located along the stunning west coast of Vancouver Island on the traditional territory of the Tla-o-qui-aht First Nations, within the naturally rugged Clayoquot Sound UNESCO Biosphere. Where else can you surf year-round, explore untouched rainforests and dine at world-renowned restaurants all in one coastal village? Don’t let Tofino’s size fool you — our town makes a lasting impression with its vivid natural beauty, cultural diversity, exciting local events and accessible activities for all ages. Make the most of your visit by familiarizing yourself with all that Tofino has to offer.
Rentals & Lessons
Enjoy the convenience of Tofino Paddle Surf’s SUP & surf lessons and rentals, next door to Ocean Village. Whether you’re a first timer or a seasoned shredder, they’ll pair you with the right gear and the best instructor for the job.
Tastes of the Coast
From local brews and spirits to coastal-inspired mouth watering meals—the only thing more famous than our waves are our chefs. Satisfy your craving for both fine dining and surf n’ turf at any one of Tofino’s award-winning restaurants and eateries.
No matter what time of year you visit, there’s an exciting local performance or community event to be enjoyed. Join us in March for the Pacific Rim Whale Festival, or stop by on Saturdays in Spring/Summer to check out all the Tofino Public Market has to offer.
MAKE A SPLASH
Welcome to Canada’s cold-water surfing capital. Zip into a wetsuit then choose between hanging ten at any of Tofino’s many surfable beaches, or stand up paddleboard (SUP, for short) in the calm waters of MacKenzie Beach, directly in front of your cabin.
