Whale Watching Packages @ Pacific Sands, Tofino BC

They're almost here...

Spring whale watching season starts soon.

Yes, that's a whale waving at you! All part of the annual arrival of 20,000+ Gray Whales that will be migrating past our shores starting next month—right on time for the Pacific Rim Whale Festival.

As anyone who's seen it will nod and enthusiastically attest, the spectacle of 40-ton mammals swimming in majestic Clayoquot Sound is as amazing as it sounds. Especially from the comfort of a large cruising vessel with your choice of indoor and outdoor viewing from multiple deck elevations.

Make it a family adventure with our 2 for 1 Family Whale Watching special and get a free kid's fare with every adult fare—March 1 thru April 30. [more]

Michael's On It

You know when you're spending time at a resort, and you've got "that go-to person" for whatever you need?

Our Houseman, Michael Ranoco, is that guy to many new and returning guests. From luggage and transport, to local intel, Michael's on it. Which is likely why he's now been twice voted Five Star Employee of the Month by guests; this time for his "timely, efficient and knowledgeable assistance of our requests and needs."

Michael's 10+ years in hospitality has included work in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, but it's Tofino's natural beauty that drew and keeps him here. He's now working on getting his son here from the Philippines and can't wait to share Tofino with him.
