Once on the island, weave through the timeless Douglas fir trees of the stately Cathedral Grove. Look out for the Martin Mars water bomber, the largest Allied seaplane of World War 2, based at Sproat Lake. Stroll along the beach to see the ancient stone carvings in the rock face - the petroglyphs are up to 3,000 years old.
There’s plenty to do from the small village of Ukee. Wildlife abounds and you can go whale watching or bear watching, fishing, surfing, hiking, biking, ocean kayaking or zip lining. It’s a popular spot for ornithologists too. A pleasant way to end the day is the Ukee dining experience on a sunset cruise. Nearby in Tofino you can explore the Pacific Rim and Long Beach.
