Tofino has a really cozy feeling when it’s tucked in by low hanging clouds. You really feel where you are, like you’re at one with the mountains and Pacific. Also, the best way to get here? Seaplane! Standing on this dock is a great people watching spot in Tofino. You get a sense of what life is like in this tucked away part of the world. Kids come into town from surrounding settlements by water taxi and seaplane to attend school. My school bus was definitely not a twin otter! Boat loads of grinning tourists making their way to board whale watching tours, excited at the prospect of seeing the iconic Orca. And best of all, fishermen returning from their early morning work, boats full of the world famous West Coast salmon. There are worst ways to spend an hour, that’s for sure!
