Whats the cheapest way to get to Hot springs Cove??

Hey

Just recently moved to Victoria, my friends and I want to plan a trip out to the hot springs in October, we would be driving to Tofino, and we are planning to stay on the island at least over night. Any advice would be appreciated !

Thanks !

It's popular by kayak.

Or did you mean to qualify that question?

Its a fairly long way, which is why it costs to much.

Not really all that far but there is some open ocean. Under 15 miles flying so a little more by water. Gotta think cheapest, other than kayak, is a $100 90 minute water taxi or zodiac tour about the same price.

When you say you "are planning to stay on the island at least over night" do you mean in Tofino or at Hot Springs Cove. If at Hot Springs you can either camp or stay on a boat (unless it has changed since the last time I was there). Check http://www.innchanter.com/?page_id=5

Or you can stay at the Hot Springs Cove Lodge just across (by boat) from Hot Springs Cove. Never stayed here, just have seen it from a boat a few times.

I just meant that its far enough to warrant the costs.

check out Jamies Whale Watching online. They have both a boat tour and a combo tour - flight seeing with boat. Either way you get some time to soak in the hot springs. Have fun.

There also may be other great Tofino based whale watching operators. Jamies is the one I know and refer to.
