( Tofino/Ucluelet area 23/24 please be sure to check the sub areas also )
When visiting the Pacific Rim a local tide table report will give you the best times to beach comb and to be able to access tidal pools full of life. If you plan to harvest any shellfish be sure to check in with DFO to ensure that the area you are in doesn’t have a Red Tide warning or is a contaminated area such as around marinas or draining ditches. Shellfish contamination depending on the species and time of year can be quite common. When on the shorelines of the west coast be aware that of out of the ordinary waves can crash far up the beach line unexpectedly, Make sure to keep a safe distance between yourself and the sea especially when in rocky areas.
