Hi, I have been so impressed with the helpfulness of everyone on this forum,
My husband and I are coming to Vancouver Island next September and we hope to see as much wildlife, especially whales, as possible. I had thought of spending 2 or 3 nights in Victoria and then going to either Nanaimo or Parksville for a few days and then spending a week in Tofino to whale watch and walk part of the Pacific Rim Trail. Is it worth doing a whale watching trip from Victoria as well as Tofino to see different types of whales? We love seeing dolphins and bird life as well. We like walking on the beach and scenery, so Vancouver Island seems the most perfect vacation spot for us.
Many thanks for any itinerary help,
