We have had an incredible week for both whale and bear watching this week in Tofino. We have been very lucky and have seen many Grey and Humpbacks on every trip for several weeks now. This photo (left) was taken yesterday as the Humpbacks seemed to have been celebrating Canada day with a splash. The weather has been fantastic and providing excellent opportunities for beautiful photos, calm seas and wonderful memories.
Tofino had it’s regular Canada Day festivities with music and activities in the park including a BBQ and beer garden which is always a good time. The evening wrapped up with some fantastic fireworks out in the Tofino Harbour. As many are aware we have recently had to add the HST to the price of our tours. While there is really no way that we could not collect the tax what we can do is tell you where you might be able to save a little. Our local Tofino Visitor centers and many of the hotels will showcase the Pacific Rim Visitor’s Choice Guide. Inside the guide you will find a coupon for 10% off any of the tours offered at West Coast Aquatic Safaris. If you don’t want to take your chances finding the guide then we really advise making reservations in advance through our website and the “Book Now ” page. Doing so will also ensure that you save 10% for bookings more than 24 hrs in advance. With Summer now in full swing it is also more important now to make your reservations early. NANUQ is our newest and largest boat and although she can accommodate 36 passengers at once we have already had several tours that have been sold out.
