Great tour! The pilots are very friendly. During the flight the pilot gives you informations about the landscape and activities (fish farm, ...). On the way back the pilot made two loops over the ocean for seeing whale!

On July 5th, 2018 our family of 8 took two sightseeing heli tours around Tofino. It was a wonderful experience and the pilot was so capable and friendly. I highly recommend this business! Would love to do it again some day.

Hi The flight was around 15 minutes each way. They land you at the pontoon where the boats moor up, and there is boardwalk to the hot springs that you follow from there. You typically have around 3-4 hours in total including... More

Hello Kulvinder I believe we paid around $420 for the flight to and return from the hot springs, we had the plane to ourselves. Hope this is helpful.
