Hot Springs Soak Tour

Join us for this trip of a lifetime.  Embark on a 6-6 ½ hour adventure to Maquinna Provincial Park.

Your day begins with a 90 minute boat ride aboard our covered cabin cruiser, (open vessels also available for warm summer days), from Tofino to Hot Springs Cove, 32 km (20 miles) up the coast.

Along the way there is an excellent chance to see whales, sea otters, sea lions, birds and even the occasional bear or wolf.

Once you arrive at Hot Springs Cove, there is a 2km (1.2mile) boardwalk through an old growth rainforest that takes you along the peninsula and out to the geothermal hot pools.  This is a lovely trail, with lots of stairs and lookouts to capture the views.  Enjoy a relaxing soak in the pools, a toasty 42°C (107°F) or an exhilarating massage under the waterfall!

We suggest that you pack a picnic lunch, lots of water (no glass please), bathing suit, towel, and of course, a camera.  Water shoes are also helpful as the springs are all-natural and can be slippery at times.  Be sure to dress appropriately for the day, as you are off the boat for about 3 hours and the weather can change quickly on the coast.  Please note that this tour may not be suitable for people who are pregnant or have serious neck/back or knee injuries.

There is a $3 per person provincial park user fee that is added to the price of your tour. Please remember Hot Springs Cove is a Provincial Park so their rules apply while in the park.

Enjoy all the excitement of the Hot Springs Soak Tour with the addition of flying one way on a float plane.  The scenic float plane journey takes approximately 15 minutes and offers breathtaking views of Clayoquot Sound from above.  Please note that float planes are grounded in heavy fog.
