The Ecolodge

The Ecolodge is a 12 room guest lodge nestled within the whimsical 10 acre waterfront of the Tofino Botanical Gardens. It was designed for the conscientious traveler looking for quiet, clean, affordable accommodation in Tofino, with a focus on educational groups, retreats and learning opportunities. It comfortably sleeps 25 -30 guests.

Ocean Friendly

We are proud participants of the Surfrider Pacific Rim Ocean Friendly Business Campaign. We encourage you to make use of our equipment and ask that you do not bring disposable plates, cooking trays or single use plastic cutlery into our facility. Our tap water is wonderful and safe to drink, so please bring your own reusable water bottle to refill and view the Ecolodge mission page to understand our sustainability initiatives.

Living & Dining Room


The Ecolodge was built as a field station for research, thus it was designed with two ‘Teacher’s Suites’ which have private bathrooms and the shared bathrooms are used by the Bunk, Twin and Queen Rooms.

The shared bathrooms are clean, bright, and spacious and afford guests with a very comfortable level of privacy. All of our bathrooms feature locally-made, eco-friendly bath products. A hairdryer is provided in each bathroom.
