Tour is rain or shine. We get a lot of rain in Tofino, but thankfully, most of it comes in the winter. Summer is usually quite beautiful.
The tour features quite a few seafood-based dishes featuring locally caught seafood.
***Please note that the tasting menu & locations are subject to change.***
Rhino Coffee House
We start the tour where a majority of locals start their day at Rhino Coffee House which features locally roasted coffee & signature in-house made doughnuts.
An award-winning local favourite. It’s here where you will taste Crispy Shrimp & Cod Cakes paired with Hoyne Brewing Co. Dark Matter beer.
Tofino’s oldest restaurant – by far, where you will sample their Old School Clam & Bacon Chowder.
At Tofino Sea Kayaking we will present you with a stunning view to enjoy while you snack on locally smoked & cured meats, cheeses and preserves from Picnic Charcuterie.
Dockside Smoked Fish Store
Truly a local secret. This is where you will get to sample a tour favourite – locally caught smoked salmon.
Ice House Oyster Bar
With a magical view, here you’ll try a baked Umami Tsunami Oyster along with your choice of sparkling cider or locally crafted beer.
Every good meal ends with dessert & our tour is no different. We leave you with a voucher to enjoy a scoop of homemade gelato in a waffle cone.
Meeting point is outside of Rhino Coffee House on Campbell Street in Tofino.
Please meet 5-10 minutes before the tour begins. Due to the limited amounts of parking in Tofino, it’s best to arrive well in advance of the tour to assure you can find a parking space before meeting with your guide. Aim to take possibly 5-10 minutes to find parking from June thru September.
There is a paid parking lot on 3rd & Main.
We have carefully selected food tastings in partnership with our vendors that reflect the uniqueness of our area and its food scene, and these selections often include seafood, meat, wheat, and dairy products. Due to the incredibly busy nature of our vendors during the peak season, we can not make arrangements for gluten-free, vegans, vegetarians and food allergies.
If you have severe food allergies to seafood, nuts, wheat, or dairy, a food tour may not be the best idea for you and we ask that you take responsibility for protecting yourself at all times.
Because there is alcohol served on our food tour, guests must be 19+ years of age. If you look 30 or younger, we may ask you for two pieces of identification.
Mothers nursing babies are welcome however strollers would take up too much room in some of the smaller vendors we visit and therefore, are not allowed on the tour.
For parents with children who wish to take the tour, we have a special partnership with Grandma Marg’s Clubhouse who provides local childcare for your kids while you’re on tour.
Grandma Marg takes children ages 6 months and up.
Rate is $15 per hour for a 4 hour minimum.
