Recently, while entering Ahous Bay for remote island surfing and camping drop-off on the West Side on Vargas Island, we encountered 4 Gray Whales feeding. On the return cruise back to Tofino there were 8 whales in Ahous Bay, it is always great to see larger numbers of whales and wildlife in Clayoquot Sound.
The Remote Surfing and Camping drop-off is at a very protected smaller cove just West of Ahous Bay, with a 5 minute hike through the forest to a beautiful prestine beach with a great surfing break on Vargas Island. That beach with some sand dunes is known locally as Little BaJa; it is a great place to Camp, Surf, and Beachcomb. I should mention there is a food cache and a toilet at the drop-off cove. Few people go there and with plenty of beach you should be able to find your solitude if that's what you're looking for.
