Day 7 Tofino Exploring
This morning we have included the popular Coastal Bear Viewing excursion. This tour features black bears and explores the fjord inlets of Clayoquot Sound. During the winter, local black bears are in semi-hibernation. Come May, they leave their dens and head for the closest food source - the ocean! While the bears forage in the intertidal zone, you can unobtrusively observe and photograph their behaviour. You will experience the tour aboard an open-air, rescue-style, 24' rigid-hulled Zodiac suitable for this calm water program. The vessel's shallow draft is especially good for manoeuvring in the small sheltered bays while you are watching for bears and learning about this unique environment. Renainder of the day at Leisure - take in some of the best beaches in Tofino for a swim or a stroll - Chestermans's Beach, Cox Bay but don't miss out the sunset at Tonquin Beach.
