Students make their own way to Tofino, arriving on or before May 5th. You can fly either to Vancouver Airport or to Victoria Airport. From the Vancouver airport you must get yourself to the Vancouver bus terminal (at 1150 Station Street). From there you take the Tofino Bus via Horseshoe Bay to Tofino. Similarly, from the Victoria Airport you must catch the Tofino Bus from the Victoria Bus Terminal (at 721 Douglas Street).
Note that Tofino Bus leaves Vancouver and Victoria early in the day and so you may need to arrive the night before and stay in a hostel. Please pay attention to connections when booking your flights.
It is also possible to fly directly from Vancouver airport to Tofino with Pacific Coastal Airlines.
