We’re hoping to travel near the beginning of August from Vancouver Central Hi Hostel to Horseshoe Bay to Nanaimo to catch the 10.30 am Greyhound to Tofino. Is this feasible? We know the ferry takes about 1 ½ hour and costs about $15, but not how long it takes to get from Vancouver Central to the ferry terminus at Horseshoe Bay, or how long it takes from Nanaimo ferry terminus to where the Greyhound goes from. My partner says we should fly but I understand there’s luggage restrictions and I don’t want to have to leave our gear behind (had problems doing this before!).
I hear Tofino is as unmissable as Fraser Island in Aus and also that there are zodiac trips you can take to see bears – so I don’t mind a bit of hassle getting there!
All the best and I hope someone can help.
