What You'll Get
A hot spring is produced when geothermal from energy beneath the earth's crust heats groundwater, much like a neglected hot plate left under a stockpile of Crystal Pepsi. Take in some piping-hot earth pop with today's Groupon: for $59, you get a Hot Springs Cove tour (up to a $119 value) from Ocean Outfitters, located in Tofino.
Ocean Outfitters supplies adventure seekers with exciting outings along the coast. The Hot Springs Cove tour gallivants over more than 32 kilometres of beaches, rain forest, coves, and ghost ships. While sailing through the scenic seas, sojourners will have chances to view a variety of wildlife, such as whales, bears, seals, sea lions, bald eagles, and more. Sightseers rove over the coast aboard a covered, cabin-style heated high-speed cruiser, safely soaking up the sights under the care of experienced skippers who moonlight as cocktail waiters whenever inebriated merfolk wash up on deck. Participants reach the tour’s apex of natural splendour after a 1.5-kilometre trek through the rain forest deposits them at a series of natural hot springs, a picturesque peek at the Pacific, and a beautifully tumbling waterfall.
Ocean Outfitters' rates fluctuate throughout the season; plan ahead to make sure you're redeeming your Groupon at the most opportune time. Though Ocean Outfitters sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.

About Ocean Outfitters
Based along the wave-lapped shores and lush topography of Tofino, Ocean Outfitters grants guests an intimate and informative exploration of majestic West Coast flora and fauna during environmentally responsible tours. With the salt-laced air tousling their hair, the company’s quintet of seasoned skippers pilots a fleet of meticulously maintained vessels about area waterways, letting loose their wisdom on the region’s wildlife and geology. Keels skim along the craggy, mist-laced coastline, granting guests a chance to snap scenic pictures or request autographs from whales whose songs have appeared on countless new-age albums. Ocean Outfitters' dedication to environmental stewardship is why the company strictly adheres to the guidelines for responsible whale watching, and supports local wildlife research and rescue programs through donations of a portion of its profits.
