This is Canada's undisputed surf capital, where a temperate marine climate reigns! Surfing is the thing to do in Tofino, where waves break year-round against a spectacular natural backdrop of wide, sandy beaches and temperate rainforest - and there are a variety of waves and beaches for every skill level, from the novice to the seasoned surfer.

Exploring Tofino

The West Coast of Vancouver Island is remote yet accessible and of course unspoiled, pristine and yours to discover. The Inn is 4.8km or 2.5mi before the town of Tofino, a launch pad for exploring this stunning area. From extreme to extremely laid back, there are activities here for everyone during every season: from wildlife excursions, cultural tours, fishing, kayaking, paddle boarding and surfing, and more to helicopter journeys taking you to untouched lakes, streams or glaciers. Other than a camera, all you really need to bring is a relaxed state of mind and a sense of discovery! Allow our knowledgeable Concierge team, headed by a Clefs d'Or member, to arrange a personalized Tofino experience.

Crab Cookout

Boat to table practices and the bounty of the West Coast of Vancouver Island are ready for your enjoyment as you join the Inn's summer Crab Cookout on Chesterman Beach in front of Henry Nolla's Carving Shed. Allow the salt air to season your appetite for freshly caught Dungeness Crab - the centrepiece of this feast - prepared right on the beach. Each meal is accompanied by seasonal, Vancouver Island produce and foraged delights, and followed by the option of eating s'mores by - what else - a beach bonfire! This is a true West Coast experience, wonderful for families and adventurers.

Carving Shed

In the late 70's, with the help of contractor Don McGinnis and carver Henry Nolla, the McDiarmid family began construction on their Shell Beach cabin. Dr.McDiarmid developed a deep respect and trust for Henry, inviting him to build his own place on property. In his Carving Shed on Chesterman Beach, using tools he designed himself, he completed much of the adze work found throughout the Wickaninnish Inn.Though Henry passed in 2004, his legacy continues in the hub of artisan activity at his carving shed right by the Inn's Beach Building as well as the small Henry Nolla Art Gallery off the Driftwood Café.
