Spring Break To-Do's in Tofino

February 25, 2015

Ahhh... the promise of spring is upon us with Spring Break just around the sweet-smelling corner. The days are getting longer, the blooms are getting brighter and the whales are doing their thing, right on cue. Whether you’re staying with us during Spring Break or thinking about it, here's a line-up of Tofino happenings to make this year’s family getaway unforgettable.

March 8 to 21 – Nightly S’mores Roast
Enjoy complimentary fireside celebrations of everybody’s favourite marshmallow treat, nightly from 6:30 to 7:30pm in the main Gazebo. From roasting sticks to all the delicious ingredients, guests big and small are welcome to help themselves. More on Resort Services.

March 14 to 22 – Pacific Rim Whale Festival
For 29 years, Tofino and Ucluelet have saluted the arrival of 20,000+ migrating Gray Whales with the always-eventful Pacific Rim Whale Festival. From parades and beach tug-of-wars, to educational talks and chowder chow downs, choose from over 40 events and seaside shindings, many of them free.

I look forward to my visit during the Pacific Rim Whale Festival with family and extended family next month. Time is flying by and soon we will be there.

It would be great if you could add my storytelling sessions at one of the greatest attractions on the west coast, Eagle Aerie Gallery.

Here's the event info:
Storytelling at Eagle Aerie Gallery March 17th, 18th, 20th, 21st at 11:00 am daily. Autographing to follow. Come early to get a good seat - this event is free!

PACIFIC SANDS: Thanks for the event info Roy!

Hi! Our spring break is actually from the 22nd to the 29! We are staying at Pacific Sands and wondering if some of your spring break activities will still be happening then? Thanks!

PACIFIC SANDS: Hi Melissa! The festival may be over, but the whales are just warming up when you're here...be sure to let us know if we can assist with booking a whale watching tour for you?

Pacific Sands was a romantic, magical place for me and my late husband. I'm really excited to finally go back and wrap myself in a warm, cozy blanket of sweet memories of our favourite west coast retreat. I purchased a print of Roy Henry Vickers 'Sunset Beach' last year because it was such a stunning reminder of this very special place.

Oops, that Roy Henry Vickers print to which I referred is titled 'Sunset Point.'

PACIFIC SANDS: Thanks for your lovely comments Georgina! So great that you took a piece of Tofino home with you.
