It’s no secret that Tofino is home to some of Canada’s best surfing beaches. We have miles of sandy strips with endless waves lapping at the neoprene covered toes of those looking for a thrill. As the town starts to settle from the busy summer season, and the winter swells begin to move in, it’s time to play again.
Referred to locally as PRNPR, or simply The Park, Pacific Rim National Park is one of the most beautiful areas of Canada.
For the entire month of May Tofino will join in celebrating FeastBC with our very own Feast Tofino month-long festival that showcases boat-to-table cuisine!
This month of May is packed full of mouthwatering events and special set menus at different local restaurants (some even with guest chefs), movie screenings, cooking lessons, the very popular dockside festival and even a day of backroad dirt biking followed by a wild gourmet BBQ!
Another wonderful Pacific Rim Whale Festival has come and gone from our communities here on the west coast and a lot of fun was had by all! One of the many great things about Whale Fest is the events put on are meant to not only be fun and educational, but also to share our love and respect of nature.
Us west coasters are very blessed to live, and make a living, in what is probably one of the most pristine eco-systems in all of the world, and we are reminded every time we walk out of our doors how lucky we are by all of the natural beauty that surrounds us.
It’s official - the first grey whales of the season were spotted off the coast of Tofino last week and word was spread quickly around town via Facebook and Twitter (isn’t technology wonderful sometimes!?).
For us here on the west coast the return of the whales also signifies the returning of spring, and we couldn’t be happier to know that daylight saving is just around the corner and the days are getting longer and brighter. Another sign of spring for us at Crystal Cove is all of our crocus’ that are popping up and blooming around the property.
Love is patient
Love is kind, and envies no one.
Love is never boastful,
Nor conceited, nor rude;
and not quick to take offence.
Love keeps no score of wrongs;
Does not gloat over another’s sins,
But delights in the truth.
There is nothing love cannot face;
There is no limit to its faith…
It’s December 21st – are you ready for Christmas yet? Here at Crystal Cove not only have our stockings been hung with care but a number of other decorations as well. There are lights on the buildings and in the trees, and a tree in the office beautifully decorated by our manager’s wife.
Did you know we have an aquarium out here on the West Coast? Well we do! Up until this year, the Ucluelet Aquarium was comprised of this little box of a building that did nothing to justify the awe-inspiring marine life that was housed inside, not to mention the great staff and volunteers. The dream of building a new aquarium had been in the works for a while and this year we got to see this dream become a reality! The new building is just feet from the site of the old aquarium at the bottom of Main Street, in the heart
Want to come to Tofino but don't feel like making the drive yourself? A great way to travel out to Tofino (especially during the winter when the road conditions are less then perfect) is by our awesome local transit provider The Tofino Bus.
