Tofino, Canada. June 14 - 21, 2019
June 2019. 7 nights, 8 days.
We are bringing Sea Together off the page and into the lineup with a week of fun! This trip will leave us feeling inspired by authentic connection with our global sea sisters and the ocean, and inspire us to live boldly as our true selves, explore our creativity and relationship to surfing, and learn from others and the special place of Tofino, Canada! Tofino is named the most inclusive surf community for women. This trip is for lady surfers of all types—creatives, dreamers, unique individuals, explorers, and mama ocean.
Sea Together Creative Surf Retreat
We will enjoy 7 nights/8 days on the beautiful island of Vancouver Island at a private retreat property in Tofino with two houses in the beautiful forest, embracing positivity, simplicity, and surfing! Life can be hectic, but we want you to return home with a fresh perspective on life and what it means to be apart of this surf community of inspiring sea sisters! Besides mind-blowing forest luxury accommodation 3-minutes from the ocean, hiking trails, Sea Together will provide transportation, breakfast, snacks, some lunches and dinners, beverages, yoga, breath & meditation, creative workshops with Founder of Sea Together, local historical education, a cultural communication workshop, photography available by Rita Goldfarb, and surf outings. (We do not provide flights or extracurricular activities not mentioned above but will be happy to assist you in the process.) Read more about your hosts here.
