Day 1 - Vancouver to Sooke

At your leisure take the ferry from Vancouver to Vancouver Island.

Once you arrive on Vancouver Island a multitude of amazing things await you.

Day 2 - Sooke and Victoria

Most of today is at your leisure. You can head north from Sooke and explore more remote beaches and communities or head back into Victoria, stroll along busy Government Streets with its restaurants and shops, visit the Royal BC Museum or pop by Fisherman's Wharf. Today's highlight is a 3h whale watching tour (tour times vary between 10 am-3 pm)..

Day 3 - Sooke to Parksville

Say goodbye to Sooke and Victoria, BC's capital. Via the Malahat Highway and its pretty views over the Southern Gulf Islands head north towards Central Island. Make sure you arrive in Parksville in time to watch the sunset. They are almost as pretty as the sunrises here.

Day 4 - Parksville

Today is at your leisure. The world - or the area around Parksville - is your oyster.

Day 5 - Parksville to Tofino

Travel West - Tofino is today's destination. Once you arrive in Tofino and the Pacific Rim National Park simply sit by the beach and watch the surfers or stroll through the quaint fishing village.

Day 6 - Pacific Rim National Park

Today is mostly at your leisure to explore the stunning beaches and secluded coves the Pacific Rim National Park has to offer. The highlight today will be an amazing adventure - a 6h Hot Springs Cove Tour.

Day 7 - Tofino to Vancouver

Today, head back to the ferry in Nanaimo and cruise back to the mainland.
