Tofino is for everyone
Tofino is a small district on Vancouver Island, off Canada's west coast. It sprawls on a peninsula within Clayoquot Sound, characterised by wild natural scenery including lakes, inlets and ancient rainforest. Sandy beaches with year-round surfing facilities include Cox Bay, Chesterman Beach and popular Long Beach, part of the Pacific Rim National Park Reserve. The relaxed town of Tofino sits on the peninsula's tip.
Westcoast Aquatic Safaris offers wheelchair accessible tours! Whale & bear watching is a must see on Vancouver island, and you can enjoy this aboard the Nanuq which is fully accessible for wheelchair users.
Tofino BC is more than a place – it’s a feeling.
It's the exhilaration of watching pounding waves. It’s the intoxicating air and towering trees that seem to be breathing with you. It’s the bobbing heads of surfers braving legendary swells on endless, sandy beaches. It’s a warm and welcome break in the clouds on the heels of a misty morning beach walk. It’s salt bathed streets scattered with restaurants, galleries, and artisan shops.
Our founder, Tarita Davenock knows disability firsthand and wants to show everyone that the world can still ‘be their oyster’. The truth is that the world is not perfectly accessible, there are still bumps in the road… What is spectacular about the world is that it was made to be seen by everyone; regardless of your mobility or ability. We work with a select group of suppliers with the same passions as ours. Choose where and when, and we will work hard at creating what your mind envisions…
