Hot Springs Cove

49.348612,-126.260977

Before the world of tourism learned anything about the unusual hot springs on Vancouver Island’s rocky west coast, the Nuu-Chah-Nulth First Nations, who had lived in the area since time immemorial, knew about them.” “Smoking water,” or mok-she-kla-chuk in Nuu-Chah-Nulth, is the traditional name for the hot springs, which have long been used for holy healing and other uses.

Hot Springs Cove, or, Refuge Cove, is an unincorporated community on Sydney Inlet on the west side of the Openit Peninsula on Vancouver Island’s Clayoquot Sound’s West Coast. Maquinna Marine Provincial Park protects Hot Springs Cove, which gets its name from its proximity to Ramsay Hot Springs. The Hot Springs Cove post office closed in 1974, but it had been in operation since 1947, when it was first known as Sydney Inlet before being renamed in 1948. Despite the post office’s closure, there is a year-round population in the area.

 

Maquinna Provincial Park is 27 nautical miles northwest of Tofino and can be reached by a 20-minute seaplane flight, a 1.5-hour boat ride, or by combining all modes of transportation (Most people take a cruise there and then fly back to Tofino.)) in what is known locally as a “Sea to Sky” journey. Expect breathtaking views of the coastline and the chance of spotting wildlife along the way, whatever route you select.

 

 

 

Additional Information

You’ll walk down a dock to the entrance to the boardwalk leading to the hot springs until you arrive at Hot Springs Cove. If you take the trail to the left, you’ll soon arrive at the campground, or you can walk the 1.5Km boardwalk trail through the old-growth forest before you reach the springs – allow about 30 minutes and be sure to look at the names carved into the wood. Choose from seven natural geothermal rock pools that gradually cool as you get closer to the ocean, and relax and take in the scenery.

The water comes out of the ground at 51ºC and creates a stream that flows towards the sea, creating pools. The water is clear it has a dissolved mineral content of chloride and sodium it also has a slight taste and smell of sulphur. The creek runs about a hundred feet past a few small pools. When the waterfalls close to the ocean floor where you soak in bowls and cracks created in the rocks

 

This is not a day trip to be rushed, and we suggest taking your time and budgeting six hours. sk your Tofino outfitter for a list of what to prepare, including a lunch, towel, and water, and enjoy this unique spot on BC’s coast.

There will come a time when you feel unsure of yourself, in that moment you just have to do your best and leave no room for doubt. It’s hard. It’s really, really hard. But if you manage to get that down, you’ll be unstoppable. 

Promise. ✨

It's grey outside - warm things up with a dip to these BC hot springs.⠀
⠀
Hot Springs Cove will warm you right up with its pools ranging from 50-100+ degrees Celsius. The hidden gem nestled in Clayoquot Sound of Maquinna Marine Provincial Park—just 30 km northwest of Tofino. BUT its only accessible by boat or plane so be sure to plan ahead!⠀

Hot Springs Cove has been on my “must see BC” list for a while now. It’s about a 90 minute boat ride out of tofinomarina up and down ocean swells on the outside or dipping between island chains on the inside passage. When you get to Maquinna Marine Park it’s about a 30 minute walk through old growth forest to the hot springs. The water flows from the forest and culminates with a steamy shower that splashes down on a series of tidal pools. The closer to the forest, the hotter it is. Out here by the ocean, the spray from the waves cools off the hot spring water making it a rather refreshing and relaxing way to spend an afternoon.⁣

Vulnerability is always the right choice ✨ 
I’ve met some truly incredibly people in 2019. Some were gone in a blink of an eye, some dance the line between stranger and friend, and some are here to stay for awhile longer or a lifetime.
Regardless of the time that has past, each soul has touched my soul and left an impression.
I’m thankful for these people. 
I’m thankful for these impressions. 
I’m thankful for my vulnerability.
To remain vulnerable, despite the ebb and flow of human connections. That, has been my greatest lesson this year.

Many switchbacks leading to the middle of nowhere, just to take a soak in some hot springs, while surrounded by Ponderosa Pines. That's my kind of detour.

Dana Statham, currently residing in Victoria, describes her work as ‘having a strong island feel’ using ‘bold colours to invoke feelings of perpetual summertime’. We think she’s captured all of this in ‘Soaring’ (36x27 giclee limited edition on canvas) - an aerial perspective of Flores Island, a small island in Clayoquot Sound, the traditional territory of the Nuu-chah-nulth First Nation. Has anyone kayaked to this isle and experienced the Ahousat Wildside Heritage Trail? This may be a fabulous memory keeper. Thanks Dana!
