Tiny tugs pulling their heavily loaded barges pass by. The lapping of the waves from the wake of the ferry boats and tugs is the only sound except for the cries of the seagulls and fluted sounds from the song birds. This peace is just minutes away from a thriving town and a multitude of outdoor experiences.
A scenic three-and-a-half hour drive north from Victoria to Campbell River on the eastern shore of Vancouver Island makes this an easy addition to your Island Road Trip or for a weekend getaway.
My husband and I spent a week and could only begin to enjoy all the area has to offer. We enjoyed a comfortable stay, close to restaurants and shopping with easy access to activities all surrounded by ocean and mountain views.
With the Above Tide Motel as our home base, these are just some of the experiences worth exploring in a wonderful destination which we wish to return to soon.
