About the Owner

The TUGBOAT INN Tofino is locally owned by Nancy Vanheest. Nancy is a true west coaster. Nancy is the owner/operator of a very busy Tug&Barge/Salvage company based in Tofino. She owns several tugs and barges and employs a large number of crew. The Tugboat Inn property consists of two large modern semidetached hones. Nancy lives in one home and graciously lets out the other home for vacation rentals.
The day to day operations of her tug and barge company keep her very busy and she does not usually take bookings or inquiries for the Tugboat Inn but instead has a property manager to run the Tugboat Inn for her. Nancy does how ever enjoy meeting new people and sharing her local knowledge with guests. Nancy takes great personal pride in the appearance and up keep of the property. Just like her tug boats everything has to be kept ship shape and orderly. The Tugboat Inn is managed by Hymax Charters.
