filming In Tofino

It’s natural to want to capture the beauty of this place on video. But there are some things you should know first.

Some quick filming facts:

  • All film shoots, whether for commercial or for destination promotion, require a film permit from the District of Tofino. Please expect at least 6-8 weeks for permit approval. 
  • Tofino is a No Drone Zone.  Due to our proximity to the Tofino Harbour Water Aerodrome and to the Tofino-Long Beach Airport (YAZ), drone use in the District of Tofino is restricted.  Here are the Transport Canada regulations.
  • Looking to shoot in Pacific Rim National Park Reserve?  Contact their friendly team.
