3 days over V Day w/e with kids

Hi - I'm an Australian living in South Surrey with my 11 and 8 yr old children and we wanted to get a feel for Vancouver Island. We have a car and I can either bring it or not. We were thinking of heading over for the 4 day long w/e May 17-20. Friends have suggested we base ourselves in Victoria but I'd be happy to choose two locations to enable us to sample a bit more. (To be honest, the kids would probably be happiest at a resort with a pool - they're whacked from school - but I'm putting my foot down as I want to see more so I have to deliver activities that they would love.) Any thoughts about structuring the trip (car/no car, departure points, activities, destinations) would be incredibly gratefully received.

I'll take that as a compliment. Lol. Now if only my DH thought the same.
