There’s a first time for everything…or a few things in this case. Hot Springs, sea-planes and midnight walks through the rainforest, not to mention sleeping in the underbelly of a magnificent 86-foot wooden ship.....

.... Everything about The Innchanter is exciting, adventurous and at times verging on the riotous. The charismatic Shaun is both a master of informality and a culinary wizard – hence plentiful feasting and merriment in a fantastically casual atmosphere. Within ten minutes of arriving six of us were diving into a fondue and cracking open the wine, elbows everywhere, noisy banter being flung around; not your typical B&B scene. After dinner (and after breakfast) entertainment was a trip to the hot springs, playground and shower of The Innchanter. A winding boardwalk through the shadowy rainforest leads you to the Pacific Ocean where a steaming 104-degree waterfall pours three metres into a series of pools, a romantic paradise for late-night star-gazing. Edible delights herald your return, and the cosy beamed sitting room with its roaring fire and extensive library is just the spot to unwind. Bedrooms are simple and characterful; art on the walls and the Captain’s Quarters still houses the old ship’s wheel. Shaun calls it ‘glorified camping’ but methinks camping never knew such glories. A laugh-a-minute and a personal favourite. Ask for transportation details from Tofino. Kayaks and rowing-boats available.
