The Pacific Rim Whale Festival Society

Welcome to the 28th Annual

Pacific Rim Whale Festival!

March 11-26, 2017

Every March, spring splashes into Canada with the Pacific Rim Whale Festival!

On Canada’s Pacific Rim, the month of March means a farewell to winter storms and a welcome back to the Pacific Rim Whale Festival – the official kickoff to the beginning of the whale watching season.  

The shores of coastal Tofino and Ucluelet witness the annual migration of over 20,000 Gray Whales on their 13,000km journey from the waters of Mexico’s Baja Peninsula to the Bering Sea – the longest migration of any mammal.  In its 31st year of celebrating this migration, the Pacific Rim Whale Festival educates the young and young at heart about these mystical creatures, and coastal life with over sixty events in our spring festival to enjoy! 

Many of the events are free of charge – with the purchase of an PRWF Events Button ($5 ea).  The featured events range from children’s fairs to culinary competitions, First Nations culture to hands-on coastal wildlife education with great speakers.
