Rough seas calming: Tin Wis, past, present, and future

Tin Wis is within Tla-o-qui-aht Ḥaaḥuułi and the Tla-o-qui-aht Tribal Parks, and like the ancestral village site that existed here for tens of thousands of years, the 85-room beachfront hotel stands facing one of the oldest highways on earth – the ocean. Connected to this deeply storied place, Tin Wis Best Western Resort’s own evolution relies upon the resilience of the Tla-o-qui-aht people, ancestral land and identity, and the perseverance of Cultural Lifeways as well as the Indigenous laws which protect biological diversity.

Stormwatching in Paradise

Why are we so fascinated by storms? Is it the way stormlight turns the hiłaayił (sky) tangerine while violet łiw̓aḥmis (clouds) muster on the horizon? That exhilarating rush of wind across your skin as it whips the whitecaps into a frenzy while an eagle hitchhikes on a thermal updraft. Positive ions and electrons dancing in the air as that irresistible lure of the ocean calls you to adventure. How a west coast winter storm animates the marinescape is pure kinetic poetry. Embrace the storm and with it, that deep energetic connection – that synergy with Nature reminding us, Hishuk ish tsawaak, or “everything is one”.

Low Tide and the Living Classroom

You don’t have to wait for a blue moon or a supermoon to explore the world of wonders revealed at low tide on Tin̓uwis (aka MacKenzie Beach). The ocean-swept sand stretches out and wraps itself around the rocky headlands, and at zero and negative tides, an isthmus forms a narrow bridge to connect to the small grouping of offshore rocks directly across from the resort. Whether it’s cloaked in morning mist or moonlight, this is a magical place to visit.
