The winds may swirl and waves may crash, just adding to your adventure here in Tofino where winter storm watching has been turned into a bit of an art form. Not only do the months from November to March bring a series of perfect storms from the mighty Pacific Ocean, we also have some fabulous vantage points, such as the Kwisitis Visitor Centre in the Pacific Rim National Park Reserve, or Chesterman Beach, with the Lennard Island lighthouse in the background.
"Every sky has its beauty, and storms which whip the blood do but make it pulse more vigorously."
George Gissing from 'The Private Papers of Henry Ryecrof'
Witness the twenty-foot swell rolling in toward the shore, and listen to the gales howling about during your Tofino winter storm watching getaway. After the fury, be sure to beachcomb the shore for some post-storm flotsam and jetsam, because you never know what surprises you'll find!
Whether you want your storm straight up with the rain glistening on your yellow slicker and the wind playing tricks with your scarf, or prefer to take a front row seat within the warmth of a local eatery or from the comfort of your own room (or a spa), you'll never look at stormy weather the same way again.
