Visiting The West Coast

Ucluelet, Vancouver Island

The old fishing village of Ucluelet has become more of a tourist destination for people from all over the world.  Located on the outside edge of the Pacific Rim National Park, it truly is a destination you must see.

The rugged west coast shoreline is a sight.  With the surf crashing on the rocks and the sun setting in the west, it’s a magical place.

From storm watchers and surfers in the winter, to fishermen and tourists in the summer.  This place is a wonderful place to visit.

The beaches between Ucluelet and Tofino are a surfers paradise.  So, not only is the fishing fantastic, but the swimming and surfing are world class.

Whales, sea lions, eagles, and bears are only a few of the great things you may encounter while on the west coast.

Come to Ucluelet, you need to see it for yourself!
