Seattle -> Pacific shores itinerary with kids

Hi, we'll be traveling with kids (7,10,18) and grandpa with the following itinerary:

Seattle - 2 nights

Pacific Shores - 4 nights

Seattle - 3 nights

We will have a van the whole time.

I'd love to go on a short whale watching cruise if this is the right season, and aside from that I am looking for ideas for the best route to travel and things to do on Vancouver Island with Pacific Shores as a home base.

I would appreciate any advice and suggestions! We have never been to Washington or Canada before.

Pacific Shores has kayaks on site to use in Craig bay or if the tide is up in Beaver Creek.The beach area and the creek are a nice little area to walk or across the bay Rathtrevor beach is good
