The springs at Sharp Point can only be accessed by sea or air. Several charter companies in Tofino offer day trips to Hot Springs Cove by boat, but the soaking time averages barely 2 hours.

Nice hike through the temperate rainforest. The boardwalk is nice and the fresh beautiful the Hotsprings at the end are a real treat but they get busy fast and more then 10 people the place feels crowded go early.

Very nice and well maintained. It does take the 30minutes that your guide will suggest, hot springs are very unique!

Very nice trail! I've been there 2 times and still a beautiful place. Well conserved and easy trail (about 25 minutes one way). Don't forget your water and snacks as you might spend a good amount of time there and on the boat. the hot springs are just beautiful!

Amazing boardwalk through the rainforest to the hot springs. Came by boat, some stairs. Pack your water shoes if you’re headed to the hot springs, the rocks get pretty slippery.

Always amazing in any weather! Take an early morning tour to avoid crowds, especially in summer. Or camp at the Campground, stay at the InnChanter or Hotsprings Lodge in the village.

Nice boardwalk with great springs at the end. Lots of stairs on the boardwalk and some slippery rocks to get into the springs proper. Be prepared! Wear good shoes!
