Driving from Vancouver to Tofino first involves the line-ups and cost of BC Ferries, currently $73.50 each way for a vehicle with 2 passengers.

After the 90 minute ferry crossing you then have a 4 hour drive across the Island from either Nanaimo or 5 hours from Victoria, giving you a total travel time of 6 to 8+ hours depending on weather and road conditions. (Note: Snow tires and chains are strongly recommended for winter travel as you will have to cross 2 mountain passes that can experience severe winter driving conditions)

Another option is to travel to Tofino by bus, but they also estimate a travel time of 7-8 hours and cost $50-65 each way.

Or you can Fly to Tofino in comfort on our scheduled charter aircraft from the Vancouver Airport in only 45 minutes and for as little as $155 each way giving you more time to surf, fish, explore nature, or watch those winter storms blow in!
