This summer we went to Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada for a two-week camping trip. We went to Tofino, Hornby Island, Gold River and Tahsis.
This is video 3/3. Check out the rest of the videos in the series: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLSQOSMGg5HG3XCcRKomM-pQDelDDTFzf4
We stayed at the Seaside RV Campground in Tahsis and the Ridgeview Motor Inn in Gold River, both very pleasant stays.
Unlike Tofino where everyone is packed in like sardines, the Seaside RV Campground – and the general Tahsis area – was relatively free from tourists, had loads of amenities, was right next to the water…Overall it was the most underrated part of the trip and we wished we had spent more time there.
The whole reason why we went to Tahsis in the first place was to visit Nootka Sound. There’s a BBC show called Taboo written by and starring Tom Hardy. The show is based around this conflict over who owns the rights to Nootka Sound. Needless to say when we were visiting my cousin on the island, we insisted on seeing the area. And I’m so glad we did, because it was breathtaking.
Things we saw / did:
-Get West Adventure Cruises – Friendly Cove Day Cruise to Nootka Sound
-Upana network of caves (so cool, literally)
-Westview Marina and Lodging has a great margaritaville, where you can sit and watch people clean fish
-Ate onion rings and wings at the Ridge Roadhouse (It was goooood)
