Wya Point Hosts Canada’s First Surfrider Youth Club

Wya Point recently hosted students from Ucluelet Secondary School and Canada’s first Surfrider Youth Club. Surfrider is a non-profit organization that works to keep the world’s beaches and shorelines clean of garbage and debris. We were stoked to host this group of passionate, energetic youth who helped ensure our beaches and waves stay pristine. Read more about the club and their day at Wya here. Thanks to everyone who participated! Want to check out Wya’s beaches for yourself? Check out our accommodation options here.

Pacific Rim Whale Festival – March 10-25, 2018

March on the west coast means it is grey whale migration season. Every year an estimated 20,000 grey whales migrate from the Baja Peninsula’s breeding and calving lagoons in Mexico toward their summer feeding grounds in the Bering and Chukchi Seas near the Arctic. Along the way they pass the west coast, where they join resident grey whales, orcas, humpbacks and the occasional minke that can be seen in these Pacific Northwest waters. The Pacific Rim Whale Festival celebrates this annual spectacle, and hosts a number of events throughout the month in both Ucluelet and Tofino. Check out which events are
