The Tofino Swell Lodge, situated on the picturesque working harbour of Tofino in Clayoquot Sound, offers its guests more than typical "lodge accommodation".   The location is a 10 minute walk to town where you will find everything you need for an amazing stay.

Seven guest rooms are complemented by common areas that often become the focus for the days activities. A full service open style kitchen extending into the window walled living room is the perfect place to relax. Below the lodge adjacent to the lawn and flower garden is the hot tub, and bar-b-que area. Please remember, pet's are welcome!

The Swells' private dock is available for your boat moorage as well as the mooring spot for  our in house Tofino Sport Fishing Co. & guide Chris Barker, a west coast guide for over 28 years. 

Charter bookings are welcomed with or without room reservations, contact Chris directly at 250.725.8200 to reserve your trip.
