      Where is the Cruise Terminal in Vancouver?

    • How to plan a week's vacatiion to cover Vancouver, Seattle and Whistler.

      Vancouver Apr 9, 2014 at 8:45 PM

      We are a family of four (boy 19 and girl 14) and will be flying from Calgary to Vancouver for a week only and would like to visit Vancouver, Seattle and Whistler. How many days in Seattle would you recommend? what about Whistler, over night stay or two nights? I was not sure if we should go straight to Seattle from Vancouver on day we arrive from Calgary. This will be our first Vancouver visit. Three years ago, we drove from Calgary to Victoria, so we want to avoid Victoria this time. Any recommendations for sightseeing in Vancouver that we can do in three or four days?


    • Probability/cost of a sublet/condo Jan-March?

      Whistler Apr 3, 2014 at 7:44 PM

      Looking to do a half season from around New Years to the end of March. Anyone know the typical availability of mid-term accommodation during the peak time of the year? Won't have a car so walking/bussing is necessary. Would love to be in village but if it is significant savings to be a little further out that's okay. How much will a room in a 3-BR typically run me? What about a 1-BR? Or is this very hard to do?

      Price range is $800-$1300

      Do I need to reserve a car in advance or are the deals better if I wait until I arrive?

    • Student season pass?

      Whistler Mar 28, 2014 at 7:00 PM

      Do you just need to submit verification of full time student status at the beginning of the season when you buy the student season pass? Or do you have to periodically prove student status?

    • Vancouver Island (BC) or Olympic National Park (WA)

      Vancouver Apr 8, 2014 at 3:46 AM

      I am planning a trip to Western Canada in early june. I will only have 7 days to go from Vancouver, BC, to Seattle.

      Therefore, I have two options to enjoy the place :
      - going to Vancouver Island (Pacific Rim :Tofino) from Vancouver and leaving to Seattle from Victoria, BC (with ferry)
      - or just crossing Vancouver Island to get to Port Angeles and the Olympic National Park (Vancouver -> Victoria and Victoria -> Port Angeles by ferries)

      As I will be getting to Vancouver area from the Canadian Rockies (Banff, Jasper), I am not especially looking for mountains in these coastal parks. I am more looking for oceans and rainforest instead. But I'm not sure which park would be the best option (Pacific Rim or Olympic National Park).

      Can someone give me some advice? If you had to choose between both, which one would you visit?

      Thank you in advance!!

    • Chesterman Beach

      by amarylis49 Online Now Sep 12, 2012 at 4:16 AM

      Hi--I am thinking of visiting Tofino in May. Will Chesterman Beach be crowded at that time? I am considering renting a Chesterman Beach cabin. I am looking for solitude and quiet.

      Thank you

    • seeing bears in eraly october

      by michelleava Online Now Sep 16, 2010 at 4:53 PM

      I will be in tofino oct 4 -8 and want to see bears. Is it too late in the year to see them in Clayoquot sound or barkley sound/ Broken islands? I was going to take one of the boat tours. I have been told they go upstream, so if this is the case, where could i see them? Also, is it a good time of year to see seals and sealions and whales?

    • driving one way to Vancouver Island

      by maureenmc1 Online Now Jan 18, 2010 at 1:21 PM

      We're returning to Vancouver Island and would like to try flying to Tofino this time to somewhat shorten the long travel day from eastern USA. We still want to drive back to Vancouver International because the drive is so beautiful, but can't seem to find a car rental willing to do a one way even with a surcharge. Someone must have done this before, haven't they?

      A Buddy and I are thinking of going to Tofino on the May long weekend to do some sea kayaking. I was wondering if anyone had some information on good guides, routes, places to stay. We would like to stick with day trips and head back to a cabin at nights.

      Tofino's weather/seasons/birdwatching and Botanical Bay

      by jgertz Online Now Aug 11, 2006 at 11:47 AM

      Good afternoon! I am planning to take my elderly mother, who is an avid birdwatcher to the west coast of Vancouver Island, either in October or next March or April. I want to avoid the high season prices and the crowds. I was in coastal British Columbia a couple of years ago in late October, but it was VERY rainy. I know how variable the weather can be in that region and the rain isn't a problem for me, but older folks get cold and cranky. Is early October a better time than March or early April for the drizzly wets?

      I was to Port Renfrew and Botanical Bay much further south and to me that was as close to paradise as I have ever experienced. Is Tofino and the Long Beach area that beautiful? Any suggestions?

      Thanks a million!

    • Accomodation for 10 and surfing rental deals?

      by Catherine_C Online Now Mar 18, 2006 at 11:11 PM

      Hi there,
      I'm looking to accomodate up to 10 people in Tofino. I'm invisioning a cabin with a kitchen and fireplace. Looking to stay for 3-4 nights in late August/September 2006. Doesn't need to be posh, just clean. I'm thinking30-60/per person per night- if that's possible.

      We will be surfing during those days. Are you aware of any surfing companies that offer deals for groups of 8-10 people (I'm thinking 1 class on the first day and 2-3 days of rental)?

      Thank you kindly for your help!

      two days and one night in Tofino

      by arohb Online Now Jul 12, 2005 at 10:32 PM


      We are a group of about 5 people planning to come to Tofino around 22nd-23rd of July. We plan to go surfing for sure. And as of now we plan to stay in "Whalers on the Point Guesthouse". However, I was wondering if there is any place in Tofino or close by where we can camp right by the sea on a beach. Any comments/help is highly appreciated.
