Just an hour flight separates Vancouver from the rugged west coast of British Columbia. By contrast the bus is a full-day ordeal but costs just a fraction of what airfare does. Tofino Bus provides twice-daily service between the Lower Mainland and Tofino during high season April through October. At other times of the year service is reduced to a single run.

For through service catch a Nanaimo-bound Greyhound at Pacific Central Station, 1150 Station Street in Vancouver, or from any stop along the north side of West Georgia Street from Granville to Denman Streets.

Alternatively pick up the bus in Victoria or Nanaimo on Vancouver Island. Visit the website of this innovative company for full details. Surfboards and bikes travel free but phone ahead 1-866-986-3466 to ensure your needs can be accommodated. The first leg of the journey from downtown Vancouver to Nanaimo is undertaken via Greyhound which has more restrictive policies. These can be easily overcome by making your way to the ferry at Horseshoe Bay on transit. The do-it-yourself approach will save a few loonies as well.

Tofino Air provides air service to Tofino from the Vancouver South Terminal Float Plane dock - 4640 Inglis Drive in Richmond. Phone: 1-888-436-7776.
