Vancouver Island Classic
Ucluelet & Tofino
May 28-30, 2021
This 3 day, 2 night tour will take a scenic route from the lower mainland beginning with the classic BC Ferries passage to Vancouver Island. This is a special tour that will combine some of BC's finest twisty back roads with epic scenery and featuring 2 nights at one of Canada's most outstanding Ocean Resorts, the Black Rock Oceanfront Resort in Ucluelet.
There's just something about Ferry Crossings that make road trips more special: The tour will begin Friday morning (May 28, 2021) sailing BC Ferries from (Horse Bay or Tsawwassen) and return on Sunday (May 30, 2021) via Nanaimo or Swartz Bay. Instructions: Ferry reservations open approximately 2 months prior to the date (Early April). It will be important for the participants to book their own out and back reservations (BC Ferries only books groups in a single vehicle charters). The Club will send out plenty of reminders and updates.
Friday the tour will make its way to Ucluelet on some of Vancouver Islands best roads. There will be several scenic stops including Old Growth Cathedral Forest, streams, waterfalls and Road Side attractions. Saturday the tour will drive backroads in the area and make stops in Tofino. Sunday will feature optional return routes and allow flexibility for participants to tour together or follow their own itinerary home on the most convenient sailing route (make reservations).
