Self Drive Highlights of Vancouver Island
Taking in grizzly and black bears, two populations of orcas, grey and humpback whales, mountains, beaches, ancient forests and Vancouver itself, this self-drive holiday is ideal for those that enjoy exploring at their own pace. With a mixture of boat trips, kayaking and hiking this itinerary provides an opportunity to explore some of Vancouver Islands’ top natural attractions at your own pace. Starting with the orcas and marine life of the Salish Sea, you then begin exploring Vancouver Island. The rugged coastline and old growth forests of sleepy Ucluelet are home to many black bears, while grey whales, porpoises, sea lions and occasional sea otters can be spotted at sea. Heading further north Telegraph Cove offers calmer water, ideal for kayaking and more orca viewing. There is also an exciting day trip into the dramatic landscapes of Knight Inlet, home to grizzly bears, bald eagles and Pacific white-sided dolphins.
