Can we drink the water?

Safe, fresh water


Yes, all the tap water at Ocean Wilderness Inn comes from a deep water aquifer more than 100 metres below the surface. The water is tested regularly. In addition we filter the water and expose it to UV light which ensures safe clean water for all our guests.

Do we get free WiFi?

Really fast, free, reliable internet

Fast, free, reliable Internet

Our WiFi connection to the Internet is 1GB.  This means your WiFi connection will be as fast as your device can receive.  The password to the WiFi service is located on your receipt.

Coffee station in each room

Coffee and Tea

You will find a coffee maker and a tea kettle in every room.  Complimentary coffee and tea are included, sugar and creamers as well.  Decaf coffee and hot chocolate are available on request. The water from the taps in the room is excellent.

Do you have cell phone service?

No cell service

Cell service

Cell service was recently introduced to this area but it is spotty at best (at the time of this writing in April, 2024)  if your cell phone is capable of routing your calls over a WiFi service, then your cell phone will work here.  You may have to activate the "Wifi calling" option in your "settings" function for this to work. In addition you can use Whatsapp or Facetime to make calls to friends and family while you are away. We do also pick up some service from the cell towers in Washington State, just across the Strait of Juan De Fuca.
