We have finally arrived in Tofino, we are staying at the incredible Tofino Swell Lodge. It is even better than we expected. We are right on the water with a marina and whale watching tours, fishing tours and bear watching tours.

It is located on the picturesque working harbor of Tofino in Clayoquot Sound. It offers its guests more than typical lodge accommodation. Seven guest rooms are complimented by common areas that often become the focus for the days activities. A full service open style kitchen extending into the window walled living room is the perfect place to relax. Below the lodge adjacent to the lawn and flower garden is the hot tub, and bar-b-que area. The Swells' private dock is available for your boat as well as the mooring spot for sport fishing and tours. Boy, we would love to have our own boat here. :-)

The owner of the lodge, Chris Barker, a west coast guide for over 25 years, has the passion and local knowledge to customize a personal adventure for any guest. Whether it is salmon, halibut or fly fishing, bird watching or a scenic cruise, Chris will take you on an unforgettable tour. Charter bookings are welcomed with or without room reservations. We are not planning any tours for this trip...but...we are already planning a second trip to the area for halibut fishing and more. I am adding pictures of the lodge and hope you enjoy. Check back later for more explorations around Tofino.
