Your Tofino vacation can be an uplifting experience.

Local airline companies offer scenic flights aboard small float planes - or, newly offered as of summer 2012, a helicopter - for travelers who like to see things from a different vantage point.

The "standard" scenic flight takes passengers over the Mariner Mountain glacier in Strathcona Provincial Park. The glacier on Mariner is visible from Tofino as you look north towards the mountains over the inlet waters. Seen from the air, the view of this glacier is unparalleled. This trip can be done in as little as 20 minutes, but with a little extra time and some luck you might catch sight of whales from the air.

Whale watching from a small plane is the best way to comprehend the truly immense size of these animals.

If you're seeking stories for a lifetime, hop aboard a seaplane or a helicopter and explore Clayoquot Sound's different remote islands and their beaches.  The airline companies typically provide a drop-off service to some islands, leaving you to explore the natural wonders of the Clayoquot Sound UNESCO Biosphere Reserve or...  to simply bask in their tranquility.
