Freedom Cove

The coastal waters surrounding the community of Tofino are a mysterious and stunning network of fjords, islands, and channels. Tucked away in the remote inlet of Cypress Bay is Freedom Cove, one of the Tofino area’s best-kept secrets.

Part art installation and part farm, the floating gardens of Freedom Cove are a unique experiment in sustainable living and a must-see for all Tofino visitors.

Freedom Cove is a secret world bustling with creative energy
Artists Catherine and Wayne Adams have lived in Freedom Cove for over 20 years in a one-of-a-kind house surrounded by greenhouses and gardens. It’s hard to imagine a home more “off-the grid” as Catherine and Wayne’s, as they have built their home entirely on floating platforms in a quiet corner of Cypress Bay, far from the shores of Tofino. The floating garden is an expression of Wayne and Catherine’s artistic abilities as both are master carvers, Wayne is a sculptor and builder, and Catherine is a painter and writer. Wayne and Catherine live year-round off the food grown and caught in their floating gardens, making it fully sustainable.
