Your Wild Renfrew Family


Within easy reach of Victoria, Port Renfrew is welcoming, affordable, and wild as you like. Here, you live through your senses: Cedar. Sea spray. Wood smoke. You move with the seasons, currents and tides.

This is your gateway to ancient forests, epic hikes, and mighty surf — from eagles and Chinook salmon to Sitka spruce and giant Douglas fir. From here, you can trek, paddle, comb the beaches, or cast your line.

Wild Stay

We have accommodations for all lifestyles. Stay in our Seaside Cottages for a luxury waterfront vacation or enjoy the economical comfort and wilderness view of our West Coast Trail Lodge. Conveniently within walking distance to the Renfrew Pub for lunch, dinner and drinks along with The Coastal Kitchen Cafe for all day breakfast, specialty coffee and take out picnic fare!

 Whale Watching In 2022

Experience the rush of adventure as you zip across the ocean in an open air zodiac while whales spout and eagles soar in the air above you. Explore with the talented and knowledgeable Orca Spirit team and perhaps you’ll even see black bears playing hide and seek in the Old Growth forests that fringe the coastline. Our open ocean excursions are finished for the season but our team will be happy to welcome you for a whale watching adventure in June 2022!

Play in True Nature

This is the place West Coasters come to feel West Coast, to be surrounded by the things that define us – things we carry deep inside. Wilderness runs in our veins. In peak season you can book your West Coast excursions right on-site. Go Whale Watching or book a Fishing Charter to experience our wild coast. Wild Renfrew is yours to discover.

Renfrew Pub

We’ve pulled up our bootstraps when it comes to great eats. You’ll find crisp craft brews waiting on tap and menus right for anglers, surfers, kiddies and vegans. Don’t worry, we haven’t turned our backs on a good ol’ fish and chips. Hearty favourites are on the menu, too.

Coastal Kitchen

A local institution for 15 years. The regulars might be known by name, but this is hardly a mom ‘n’ pop fare. This beachy, laid-back restaurant serves a selection of healthy to-go salads and sandwiches makes Coastal Kitchen a great stop to refuel before hitting the trails or beaches. The focus is prompt friendly service plus delicious flavours that will keep you coming back for more.
