Juan de Fuca is a multi-day hike. You can easily hike it in parts. There are various different entrances which you can choose from. Be aware: once on the path, there are no real shortcuts back. You will have to hike the same way back...More

Not an easy trail but worth it in the dense rain forest, up and down the paths and board walk.The reward was a stony beach with interesting sea life in the little water ponds left by the sea on the rocks during low tide

A very beautiful park, Juan de Fuca Park has a lot to offer! I visited this place in summer of 2017, and the drive to this park itself was a fantastic one. I enjoyed visiting this place, which is full of natural beauties!

I saw a picture of the log staircase and went for this walk - only to slowly remember parts of the walk and the fact that I had done the walk in late 2014. This time, it was dry and there wasn't water everywhere, which...More

Tidepools/Whales/Sooke (5 Replies)
My husband and I are thinking of going to Vancouver Island in either MId or late May. We're going to be in the Tofino/Ucelet area and we're also thinking of going to Juan De Fuca Provincial Park. We're looking for some tidepools and also possibly a web-site to show us tide tables? We DO want to see some whales off the beach - are there any secret lookout points? We also wouldn't mind stopping in Sooke National Park but not sure this is quite as stunning as the other two places! Any advice...More

We have 6 nights total! I didn't realize you needed to arrive an hour early, thank you for the youtube video! Had no clue about Lime Klin. We are from WA! Sounds like taking a boat would be best though. My husband has done this and loved it but we were hoping to save some cashola. Darn!

3 Week BC itinerary help/suggestions (6 Replies)
Hi all, My husband and I are going to be spending 3 weeks in BC in May next year and I am trying to work out the best itinerary.... To give you some details we will be tent camping everywhere except for Vancouver. We love scenery and water falls/lakes. we love to do walks but are definitely not expert hikers, we wont be doing any full day ones. We like a bit of adrenalin things like white water rafting, ziplining etc..... We also love wine/wine touring, hence the time in Okanagan....More

In May, you may find snow on the ground in the Rockies. It is very much a transition month there, with the higher elevation lakes covered with ice until the first week of June. Lower elevation places may be further along in the season. Ask on the Canadian Rockies forum about camping. Kamloops to the Port Renfrew area would be a long day. About 4 hours to the Tsawwassen Ferry Terminal, an hour wait for the ferry, a 1.5 hour ferry ride, and the final 2-2.5 hour drive to JdeF Provincial Park....More

Pacific Rim National Park Reserve or Juan de Fuca Provincial (0 Replies)
Camp at Pacific Rim National Park Reserve or Juan de Fuca Provincial Park? Looking for the best Vancouver Island has to offer. Will be tent camping with family/kids. Looking for hiking, old growth trees, sandy beach to play in and walk, tide pools, view of whales from shore, don't like touristy--like wilderness (but a real shower is nice). Also interested in whatever First Nations have to share. Which place is a no-miss deal? Thanks for your time
