Tofino's weather/seasons/birdwatching and Botanical Bay

by jgertz

Good afternoon! I am planning to take my elderly mother, who is an avid birdwatcher to the west coast of Vancouver Island, either in October or next March or April. I want to avoid the high season prices and the crowds. I was in coastal British Columbia a couple of years ago in late October, but it was VERY rainy. I know how variable the weather can be in that region and the rain isn't a problem for me, but older folks get cold and cranky. Is early October a better time than March or early April for the drizzly wets?

I was to Port Renfrew and Botanical Bay much further south and to me that was as close to paradise as I have ever experienced. Is Tofino and the Long Beach area that beautiful? Any suggestions?

Thanks a million!

According to weather.com, the highest average monthly rainfall occurs in April. Obviously the chart is missing some information. That being said, monthly averages don't help much if you're there on the five days out of thirty that pour rain. I would plan for rain rain rain, and be pleasantly surprised if your trip is sunny.

This one shows a better graph. October looks to be the better choice, but don't count on a dry holiday!

Travel Tips for Tofino


by toonsarah

The harbour area in Tofino is a great place to hang out. You can watch the boats come and go, see the occasional float plane take off, or just find somewhere to sit and watch the world go by. Despite the activity it’s a peaceful scene, mainly because the views across the water of Clayoquot Sound to the small off-shore islands are so restful.

You’re also likely find yourself here if you’re going off exploring as it’s the starting point for whale watching tours, scenic flights, kayaking tours etc.

Back Roading...Tofino area...

by Greggor58

This is a great way to get yourself onto the "edge"of some great backcountry...see some amazing country and whats at the end of the road...something for sure....

These pics were taken when my mother and father came to visit with me in Victoria...my mother was not feeling well this day ...she had undergone chemotherapy the week previous to they're little adventure West...so my dad and I decided to go backroading ...and see something that neither of us had seen before.

Explore Flores Island...."Walk the Wild Side"

by Greggor58

You can grab a water taxi to get to Flores Island...they run regularly between Tofino and Flores Island.The boat leaves from the Government wharf in Tofino and lands in the First Nations community of Ahousaht....on Flores Island.The travel takes an hour max...and the trail will take you as long as it takes...

This is primarily a community of people of The Nuu-Chah-Nulth Nation.

"Ahousaht" is from a Nootka word probably meaning "facing opposite from the ocean" or "people living with their backs to the land and mountains."

There really isn't too much going on here AT all....but there is a pretty cool trail that takes you through the town of Ahousaht and along the West coast of Flores Island....you can take your time and really its not a chalenging trail at all....more like a gentle walk ..the trail goes along three or four beaches and through some areas of forest...the section of trail in the forest is boardwalked.
The trail actually has a name..."Walk the Wild Side" trail....and is approximately 10kms long.

This is an opportunity to see a beach of the Pacific Northwest that is NOT manicured and is for the most part in its natural state!

Sea Kayaking adventures.....

by Greggor58

Kayaking on the Pacific can be sometimes challenging and dangerous yet ALWAYS beautiful !!
There are a bevy of operations in the town of Tofino that will guide you in and around the area.
Short two to three hour trips are available as well as longer multi night camping and kayak adventures.
Sorry... there are none that I would recommend but they are easily found.

Whale watching....

by Greggor58

Tofino and Clayoquot Sound are situated right alongside the North South migration route of the Grey Whale.In the Spring they migrate from Winter calving grounds in and around the Baja Peninsula North to Summer feeding areas in and around Alaska.In the Fall the reverse happens and once again they go right past the general area.

There are again a large selection of companies that are available to take you out....I have once upon a time gone along with one company but I will not make any recommendations for you.

The link I will provide you with below is for the Tofino Chamber of Commerce
