Skipper says, “If not for Anna, Tofino’s a bust”. It was difficult getting into Tofino in big wind, strong current and shallow water. There are sandbars that keep shifting and we got stuck. This was after attempting several times to get to the fuel dock against the current and wind. Then a paddleboarder just about ran over us and scared the sh** out of Hershey. It was kind of exhausting and frustrating so Tofino Harbor is on the short list of places never to go again.
HOWEVER…. Anna is a delight to spend time with and she drove us everywhere we wanted to go. She’s Hershey’s niece from the east coast and is working for the DFO (Dep of Fisheries and Oceans) for the summer.
The harbor at Ukluelet is deep, spacious and convenient to stores so we provisioned here for the last leg of our trip. We took advantage of the lovely accomodations of the Canadian Princess for leisurely breakfasts and access to the internet.
