I hope that you can help with our short itinerary on Vancouver Island, we dock from our cruise on 29th May 2011 and want to come over to Victoria via the Ferry, we would like to spend 2 days in Victoria sightseeing and then we are considering hiring a car and driving to Nanimo and towards Tofino to capture the beauty of this island, before returning 3 days later to get the ferry to Vancouver and the airport, In total we have 5 nights. My questions are:
1. Is this a good route for sightseeing?
2. Where would be the best possible locations to stop overnight?
3. Is car hire cheap on the island
4. Should we consider the sunshine coast tour or would this be expensive with ferry crossings
Many thanks for all your time and replies
