Vancouver Island Classic
Ucluelet & Tofino
September 17 & 18, 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 (Sept 17, 2021) at BC Ferries Tsawwassen Terminal sailing to Duke Point on the 10:15am sailing. We want to keep the group together so we can co-ordinate the Highway 4 Road Closure Schedule
Return on Sunday (September 19, 2021) via Nanaimo or Swartz Bay (your choice). My reservation is from Duke Point to Tsawwassen @ 12:45pm sailing
Ferry reservations are open. It is important for the participants to book their own out and back reservations.
