Vancouver Island during Olympics

Hey,

My friend is visiting during the olympics, and she wants to go to Vancouver Island, is it a bad idea since it's probably going to be rainy and cold? What is there to do there in Feb? I'd love to go to tofino if it was the summer or whale watching but it's winter @_@

Also is the ferry ride safe to drive babied car with?

The ferry is safe but try to time it so the boat you get is the Coastal Renaissance. Two reasons

1) Its a great boat to take your car on. Everything below deck is brand new, everything is wide and solid. You have little reason to worry

2) Its gorgeous on deck. Much better than the Queen of Coquitlam or whatever normal service vessel they have on duty. She should experience it properly.


Tofino is a few hours from the Nanaimo ferry so, weather permitting, (The highway between Port Alberni and Qualicum can get shut down if it snows) make sure that you don't spend too long on the isle. Budget a full day (come over on the 6am sailing) and come back on the last sailing (9pm) or stay overnight in Victoria and take the Sidney/Swartz Bay boat to Tsawassen.


DON'T GO NORTH OF QUALICUM ON THE ISLAND HIGHWAY! THERE IS NOTHING TO SEE THERE! IT IS A BARREN WASTELAND!
Have you ever seen the movies Mad Max, Doomsday, or The Road?

Yeah, its like that.

Thanks for the advice guys~, What attractions in Victoria is worth going to this time of year? Anything 23 - 24 yr olds from out of the country may find interesting?
