Wickaninnish Inn Celebrates Canada's 150th Anniversary with Special Summer Package Plus Storm Watching Season Giveaway

"Canada 150 Pacific Rim Celebration" Guests Automatically Entered to Win Return Stay at Iconic West Coast Vancouver Island Property During Storm Watching Season

TOFINO, BC--(Marketwired - May 17, 2017) - Wickaninnish Inn today announced a special summer guest accommodation and dining package to celebrate Canada's 150th Anniversary in 2017. Designed to showcase the Inn's oceanfront appeal to travellers from around the world, the "Canada 150 Pacific Rim Celebration" package includes:

  • Three nights' accommodation
  • One 4-course 'Canada150'-inspired tasting menu with wine pairings for two in The Pointe Restaurant
  • A copy of Pacific Rim Park book
  • Two 'Canada 150' inspired cocktails
  • Two full breakfasts for two

The Canada 150 Pacific Rim Celebration package ranges from $2,139.95 to $5,139.95 plus taxes depending on chosen room type and is available from June 1st to September 30th, 2017.

Guests who book the summer package will also be entered to win a return stay during Storm Watching season. Storm Watching at the Wickaninnish Inn is recognized as a Canadian Signature Experience by Destination Canada.

The book Pacific Rim Park included in the package was written by Dr. Howard McDiarmid, patriarch of the McDiarmid Family who created, own and operate the Wickaninnish Inn. Dr. McDiarmid was instrumental in creating the Pacific Rim National Park Reserve near Tofino in 1971 when he was the Member of Legislative Assembly representing the area. Parks Canada is celebrating Canada's 150th anniversary by offering the "Discovery Pass" that gains free access to all National Parks from coast to coast to coast and includes the Pacific Rim National Park Reserve. Parks Canada has outlined 150 experiences visitors can enjoy in the Pacific Rim National Park Reserve.

"All of us at Wickaninnish Inn are excited to offer a fantastic summer stay-and-dine experience with the bonus return visit giveaway as a unique way to celebrate such an important milestone for Canada," said Charles McDiarmid, Managing Director at the Wickaninnish Inn. "The McDiarmid family is equally excited to know that our guests can also enjoy the natural treasures of Pacific Rim National Park Reserve that our visionary father and grandfather, Howard McDiarmid, helped to protect."

In addition to the summer package and Storm Watching giveaway, Wickaninnish Inn will celebrate Canada's 150th Anniversary with Executive Chef Warren Barr's participation in the "Canada C3" -- an epic 150-day sailing expedition journey connecting Canadians from "coast to coast to coast." Chef Barr, one of only fifteen Chefs invited to participate in the expedition, will join the last part of the journey -- leg 15 -- from Campbell River to Victoria on Vancouver Island.
