At wickaninnish beach, Kwisitis centre is not much changed from previous years. New First Nation Lodge exhibit is good but covers beautiful marine life mural which is a sham & serves no useful purpose.
New Kwisitis feast house restaurant is fantastic. Food is wonderful, imaginative, well presented, well priced. A great improvement on previous wickaninnish restaurant. View of beach area is world class.

If you have 30 minutes or so make the effort to go and learn a little about the Indians and general area, we actually saw whales from the observation platform. The ranger was extremely informative so have a chat with him

The staff are very friendly and helpful. They seemed to be able to answer any question. Maps are very good, be sure to pick one up.

Amazing info center - the guide/docent got to work on maps and pointed out great restaurants and points of interest in both Ucluelet and Tofino. She diplomatically asked about our budget (didn't even realize she had) and tailored places to stay within that.

Super friendly staff - very knowledgable and more than happy to help you find accommodation and activities to do while visiting Ucluelet/Tofino. The Parks Canada desk is in the same building so you can purchase your park permit there if you are visiting Pacific Rim National Park. There are also plenty of free maps and brochures you can take with you.

Great rest stop - bathrooms were clean and warm considering how often I think they are used. This is the first sign if civilization you see after coming off highway 4 so the bathrooms are a great sight for sore eyes.

There is also a beautiful garden to check out while taking a break!

Definitely stop here!
