What To Wear

What to Wear
Like all Tofino Activities wearing the right clothing makes for a fun day no matter what the weather. We recommend you dress in layers and include a rain jacket and hat if the day is overcast. Hiking boots, running shoes or any comfortable shoe is a good idea. Bring your bathing suit and a towel. And sunglasses are always a good thing to have for those bright days. Snacks, drinks or a whole picnic always make us smile. It is a day trip and you’ll have lots of time to kick back and relax. Talk to whomever is taking you on your Hot Springs Trip for any other suggestions they may have so your enjoy every minute of your adventure!
