Boat up and fly back! Experience the magic of boating to the Hot Springs and catching a flight out to remote Hot Springs Cove, where guests can enjoy a therapeutic mineral hot spring that flows out of the rainforest and cascades down a waterfall into a series of natural rocky pools.

Leave Tofino on our Covered Cabin Cruiser on a 1.5 hour boat ride up the coast. Once your driver delivers you to the Hot Springs Cove dock, you walk 30 minutes along the cedar plank boardwalk through old growth rainforest to the Hot Springs. Depending on your float plane pick up time you will get 2 hours or more to enjoy the Hot Springs. You walk back to the dock to meet your pilot and fly back to Tofino on a 15 minute flight.

We need 24 hours to be able to book your flight back to Tofino, please make your reservation ahead of your planned tour to Hot Springs Cove. To book this tour please call our office 1-888-474-2288.
