This summer, come explore with our interpreters as you experience all that Pacific Rim National Park Reserve has to offer. Discover the tide-pools and rainforest. Feel a fuzzy sea otter pelt. Listen to stories older than our ancient trees. See the land and water from a different perspective as you are immersed in cultural and natural treasures.

Hippies, Pioneers & Outcasts

The West Coast has long been known for its free spirits and eclectic culture. Hear stories from characters, past and present, who call the end of the road home.


Pirates of the Intertidal

Meet Captain Claw, a hermit crab not much bigger than your thumb. But beware - his intertidal world is full of thievery, deception & piracy!


Whale Tales

Grey, humpback, and Orca whales are some of the most captivating creatures that visit the National Park Reserve. Learn about their mysterious and fascinating lives, and how our relationship with them has changed over time.


Bears, Wolves, Cougars

Discover what happens when bears, wolves and cougars try to share this place with the people who live and visit here.


For the Love of Surf
