Restore Your Nature Deficit

“It’s a wild, Waltons-esque wonderland, the most exhilarating outdoorsy playground”
Conde Nast Traveller UK

Surfing

Travel by scenic 30-40 minute boat ride to the charming seaside village of Tofino, to surf the world-famous Longbeach and Chesterman beaches, and Cox Bay.  Depending on the season, winds, tides and guest skill level, resort guides will know just where to go to ensure best possible outcomes and biggest smiles.

A short ride by resort vehicle shuttles guests to the beach.  Instructors stay for the duration, and then shuttle guests back to Tofino for lunch or walk-about, or back to the harbour for return to the resort by boat.  Order a picnic lunch to go and make a day of it, exploring village galleries and shops.   The water is cold, but wetsuits are provided, along with surfboards and pinnies.
