Re: We stopped going several years ago.
You can do a really lovely loop trip up the eastern coast of Vancouver island and crossing by ferries to drive down (with ferry hops) back to Vancouver. We did it and it was a truly beautiful trip, with fantastic scenery. Campbell River: sat on our balcony over the sea watching a guy in a kayak fishing below us in crystal-clear waters. Went in a little boat when the Skookumchuk Narrows started to pour back to the sea. Watched through rain forests. Had eagles sail overhead as we watched seals popping mere meters away from us. Friendly people. Everything was clean, everything worked.
