  • Amazing west coast beach with potholes, tide pools and stone formations

If you’re looking to explore Vancouver Island’s wild west coast without the hustle and bustle of Tofino, consider visiting Port Renfrew.

Once we pick you up, we’ll take a scenic drive along the Pacific Marine Road. We will stop to marvel at the stunning views of Harris Creek and pay a visit to the 500-year-old Harris Creek Spruce, which spans an impressive 4 meters wide.

Then, it’s off to Port Renfrew for some invigorating hikes and tide pool exploration at Botanical Beach.

We’ll also make a stop at the awe-inspiring Avatar Grove. There, you can witness 1000-year-old Western Red Cedars, including the famous “Gnarliest Tree in Canada.”

Before returning to the east coast, we’ll take a 20-minute detour to see one of the Island’s most photographed sites: Sombrio Falls. The falls are tucked away in a short slot canyon on the beach.
