One of Seven Thermal Ponds
This eight-hour marine adventure begins aboard a 25-foot open-air console vessel or our dual merc-powered zodiac and includes whale watching (for humpbacks, grey and killer whales) and a gourmet picnic lunch.
The gentle two-kilometre boardwalk trek to the seven natural geo-thermal pools of Hot Springs Cove traverses stands of ancient cedars, fern gardens and moss-carpeted thickets.
The smell of sulphur grows as you near the falls but quickly fades as you venture closer to the first of the pools that descend to a final lukewarm bath near the sea.
Hot Springs Cove excursions are best enjoyed during May and September when bather traffic is light.
