Hot Springs Cove lies 26 nautical miles up the coast from Tofino inside Maquinna Provincial Park. Jamie’s takes you to these relaxing pools by way of the “Pacific Springs”, our 35 foot cabin cruiser, with indoor heated seating and an open back viewing deck. The vessel is also equipped with a washroom. Allowing about 1.5 hours to reach the Government dock at Hot Springs Cove, you’ll pass the feeding bays of the whales en route and do some whale watching, weather and whales permitting.The one mile (1.2 km) boardwalk through the ancient rainforest takes approximately 40 minutes (each way). Although the trail is not overly strenuous, it may not be suitable for everyone. There are about one thousands stairs in small groups, with a couple of sections that have twenty to thirty stairs.This leaves you 1.5 to 2 hours to soak in the pools. The Hot Springs tour is about 6 to 6.5 hours in total. There are no amenities at the Hot Springs, other than a change room and enviro-toilets.
