We were able to walk the trails to the Lighthouse and meander along some majestic scenery vistas. Plenty of benches for those that may need a break along the way! We were there just after the Whale festival and hoped (like the weekend prior my co-worker had seen 8 hump backs from this site) we would see a whale or... More

Loved the hike in and the realization that you really were on one of Canada's edges. Beautiful spot.

Dianne at our hotel recommended that by the lighthouse would be a great place to watch the sunset and she was right. We grabbed our backpack, a bottle of wine and a couple of glasses and went in search of the sunset. We ended up a little ways down the trail from the light house right before the trail takes... More

The Wild Pacific Trail was one of the highlights of our trip. Views were amazing. Weather was fantastic. A must do when visiting Ucluelet

The lighthouse itself is more utilitarian than picturesque, but clambering around on the rocks in front (against posted advice, I'll admit, but with ample opportunity for sound footing) was a wonderful exploration. Fog horn sounds in low visibility - not an ear-blasting noise, but ever-present when the weather's socked in.

Have made several trips around this scenic, 2.5 kilometre trail over the years and the vistas never get boring. The trail itself is well maintained and well marked. To shake things up, hike the trail at night with only a headlamp on. The twisted, weather stunted trees become very eerie and "Sleepy Hollow" like under the wash of your light... More

Amphitrite Point Lighthouse is on the Wild Pacific Trail at Ucluelet,B.C. and is a wonderful stopping point on a terrific and scenic hike. The Trail is well maintained and accessible to the public from a near-by parking area.

I would say the lighthouse itself is kind of ho-hum. The hike to get there makes the experience. The waves crashing on the rocks all around is amazing. Be sure once you climb the steps to turn around and waive at the camera so the people that are watching it on TV get a kick!
