We’re Closer Than You Think
No matter where you call home, join us on the wild West Coast for an unforgettable family-friendly getaway by choosing from a convenient array of travel options.
By Land and Sea
It’s true what they say about Tofino being at the end of the road — the scenic Pacific Rim Highway, to be exact. Drive this two-lane highway (also known as B.C. Highway 4) from Port Alberni directly to Tofino. Just be sure to plan your 1.5 hour drive around planned construction and intermittent road closures, as our highway is in the midst of receiving a much needed upgrade until Summer 2020. As this is the only road into Tofino, please be mindful of checking for updates.
Driving From Vancouver
Take a BC Ferry from either the Horseshoe Bay terminal or the Tsawwassen terminal (if you’re coming from YVR) to Nanaimo on Vancouver Island.
From Nanaimo, follow Highway 19 North until you see signs for Highway 4 toward Port Alberni/Tofino. Follow Highway 4 (Pacific Rim Highway) until you reach Hellesen Drive in Tofino — turn left and Ocean Village awaits you at the end of the road, right on Mackenzie Beach.
Driving from the U.S.
You can reach us from Washington State via two routes: drive across the border to B.C. at the Peace Arch Crossing and follow instructions towards BC Ferries Terminals from there, or take a Black Ball Ferry from Port Angeles, WA (roughly 2.5 hour drive north-west of Seattle) to Victoria (located on Vancouver Island).
If choosing the ferry route, you would then drive north towards Port Alberni, and follow signs for Highway 4 (Pacific Rim Highway) to Tofino.
Arriving in Tofino via direct flight can be a visual delight with (weather permitting) breathtaking views of the forested peninsula, coastal beaches and island mountains. Arrive at our local YAZ Long Beach Airport to kick-off your vacation as quickly as possible. Enjoy convenient, regularly scheduled air service on select carriers from YAZ to Vancouver, Victoria and Seattle. Talk to us about arranging an airport shuttle for your arrival.
In the high season only (May – October), HarbourAir also offers a regularly scheduled seaplane flight between downtown Vancouver (departing from Coal Harbour, not YVR International Airport) and “downtown” Tofino, landing you directly at the Tofino Marina.
Please let us know if you have any questions or require assistance with planning your route to Ocean Village: 1-250-725-3755.
