Property Information:

Whalers on the Point Guesthouse is your ideal platform for exploring the Tofino/ Clayoquot Sound area. We are ideally located on the water in downtown Tofino. We offer clean, comfortable and affordable accommodation with views of Clayoquot Sound and the 5,000 year old village of Opitsat, a community of the Tla-o-qui-aht people and Nuu-chah-nulth nation.

Whether you are interested in surfing, fishing, whale watching, storm watching, beach combing or just wishto explore Tofino and its exciting arts, culture and restaurant scene, we offer the best value around. Spend your money on adventure not your accommodation. At the end of each day, enjoy a hot drink or a cold brew next to the fireplace in the comfort of our great room overlooking the Sound, or relax in our cedar wet sauna before shooting a game of pool in our games room! Choose from our spacious private suites (2 – pc bathroom), private rooms or shared dorm style rooms, all with 9 ft ceilings and many with breathtaking waterfront views. We look forward to making your experience memorable.
