A haven for surfers on Canada's west coast, the small town of Ucluelet offers rugged, rocky scenery to complement the powerful waves that crash against its shores.
Start off your visit on the 19th (Thu): get up close to creatures of the deep with a dolphin and whale watching tour.

To find where to stay, traveler tips, maps, and other tourist information, refer to the Ucluelet trip tool .

Edmonton to Ucluelet is an approximately 7-hour combination of flight and bus. You can also do a combination of flight and bus; or do a combination of car and ferry.

Many urban centers call themselves "Garden City," but thanks to its many manicured parks filled with native and exotic plants, Victoria probably deserves than moniker more than most.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Dolphin & Whale Watching and Royal BC Museum. Go for a jaunt from Victoria to Sooke to see East Sooke Regional Park about 48 minutes away. Next up on the itinerary: don't miss a visit to The Butchart Gardens, take a leisurely stroll along Inner Harbour, admire the natural beauty at Victoria Butterfly Gardens, and look for gifts at Beehive Wool Shop.
