Ucluelet or Tofino? This Will Help You Decide.

Ucluelet or Tofino? That is the ultimate West Coast wanderer debate. Both towns are situated only 30 minutes apart on the wild and rugged western coast of Vancouver Island. The journey to the brink of the Pacific Ocean is majestic itself; dock at Nanaimo after a scenic sail on BC Ferries from the mainland and begin an epic road trip through rainforest and mountains. With stops along the way, this 2.5 hour drive evolves into a memorable day before you arrive at your final destination. So, which town should you set your luggage down in? Because they are so...
