Advisories & Bulletins

Tofino’s remote and rugged location on the West Coast of Vancouver Island allows us to slow our minds, reconnect with the outdoors, and enjoy spending time together. It also means that we need to be ready to adapt to situations dictated by nature or travel logistics. 

Before you start your journey to Tofino, we always recommend checking the DriveBC and BC Ferries websites for any bulletins. We do our best to include any of those important messages that could impact your travel here as well. When you arrive, we will keep this section updated with information you need to know for your time here, like power outages and water conservation measures to ensure that you can always make the most of your stay.
