After breakfast, Drew will take you into Pacific Surf Co to meet your surf coach, Allan Pearson. Then it's time to get suited up and go surfing until noon. After lunch Drew and Yogi will take everyone for a walk through the beaches and forests of Pacific Rim National Park.


After breakfast we'll meet Allan for your 09:00 lesson. Today is all about reading the waves, winds, and tides, then we'll surf and shoot video. Tuesday afternoon is set aside for free time. Spend it relaxing or for an additional charge you can head out whale watching, stand-up paddle boarding, kayaking, or on a visit up the coast to Hot Springs Cove. Interested? Just head to the front desk and they'll get you sorted. Tuesday night is known as "Tunes-Day" at the pub, so you might want to head over for a few drinks and some live music.


After breakfast we'll meet Allan at 09:00 to review your surf footage from yesterday. You'll get to watch everyone's best waves and get some solid tips to help you improve your surfing (1 hour). Then we'll hit the surf again and shoot some more video (2 hours). On Wednesday afternoon Drew will take you on another adventure in Pacific Rim National Park so you can be blown away by the old-growth forest and endless, surf-filled beaches.

    "There is such a great vibe in Tofino and Drew hooks you up to it immediately (the coolest places to go, where to go to get anything you may need, the history, ecology, knowledge of the peoples of the land, he is a total support in every way). When you talk to Drew you get a full picture; you appreciate that Tofino is really trying to develop tourism in a sustainable and ecological way whilst retaining the vibe, deep history, and culture."

    "Mid Wales Birdwatching Holidays This summer was my very first time visiting Tofino and I registered for the 5 Day All-Inclusive Surf Sister Camp. We had Kate and Chantal as our instructors and they were excellent. They were super patient, really friendly and their lessons were helpful and fun! We also had yoga classes (Fit to Rip) with Nicole in the mornings before going in the water and it was very useful for the learning process! We also had an amazing guide named Drew who took care of everything. Hes the owner of Tofino Travel Co and was really helpful and showed us how wonderful it is to live and surf in Tofino! It was a stunning experience and thanks to The Original Tofino Travel Company for an awesome trip."

    "My first time visiting Tofino, BC was an unforgettable experience thanks to The Original Tofino Travel Company! I registered for the 5-day surf camp with Pacific Surf Co. and found the small camp sizes perfect, allowing for each person to get enough attention. Our instructor Allan was very knowledgeable and full of positivity. Each day he kept us motivated and challenged. During our down time, Drew showed us around town, and took our group on hikes and adventures around local beaches. Drew is a tremendous guy with the sweetest dog and made Tofino feel like home. Great company and amazing surf, what more could you want? I can't wait to visit again."

    "I had an amazing time with Tofino Travel Co last summer. I visited for a 5 day surf camp and my surf instructor Allan was very patient, and thanks to him and Drew I managed to have fun on the waves even though I was a bit anxious to start with! After a relaxing morning surf session, I enjoyed the hikes Drew took us on to explore the breathtakingly beautiful Pacific Rim National Park. I was lucky enough to go whale watching and see orcasthat will be a lifetime memory! Overall, I felt warmly welcomed, which is so valuable when visiting a foreign country. Thank you so much for this wonderful holiday! I really wish to come back to Tofino someday."
