Is that possible to access to hot spring cove during Christmas? Can we walk through to? I am planning a trip between December 22 to 25. Hope to hear from you.

    There is camping available near the dock. The site is managed by the Ahousaht Guardians. It's first come first serve for sites. They are waterfront along the refuge cove/Hotsprings inlet. Overnight fees do apply.

    In terms of wildlife you will see along the boat ride, you are much more likely to see grey whales than orcas or humpbacks. At times you can even see them from the springs so always keep an eye out for blows on the horizon!

    Also to be noted is the Wildside Trail on Flores Island, which doesn't seem to be listed on this site. It's 11km one way or a 22km round trip. Also managed by the Guardians via the Ahous Fuel Bar where the trail office is located and trail fees can be paid. Camping is allowed or the Aauuknuk Lodge in Ahousaht is available for people wanting access to showers and flush toilets.

      What a great experience. Not much of a hike but the boat trip, scenery, and the hot springs made for a wonderful day. Would do it again if we visit that area. Loved it!
