Share these hikes!

On this Vancouver Island Day Hike, you will explore one of the beaches on the West Coast of Vancouver Island along the 45 km Juan de Fuca Trail – you will see first hand why they call this area the “Wild” West Coast.

You will have plenty of opportunities to hike and photograph the stunning coastline of Vancouver Island.

what you’ll be doing

We will drive north from Victoria to a locally loved cafe, where you will pick up lunch and coffee.

Our stop is just up the road at a beach that is a local favorite. You will walk along the beach and get to see cool tide pools and sea life, a rocky shoreline and a hidden waterfall.

We will eat lunch at the beach and hopefully see some seals, eagles and otters.

After lunch, we will be scrambling over large boulders while dodging the incoming tide to get to an amazing viewpoint of an untouched cove. (4kms or 2.5 miles round trip)

where we will be

Your tour will begin with a visit to one of the most picturesque areas on Vancouver Island, the Juan de Fuca Marine Park.

You will visit a pristine beach, hike in the forest, and see a hidden waterfall (or two) within the Juan de Fuca Park on Vancouver Islands West Coast.

What Our Guests are Saying…

Highly recommend this hiking experience with Jennifer! She is super friendly and knowledgeable about local hikes and popular spots (e.g. a secret WWII plane that one can hike to in Tofino) on Vancouver Island. She took us to a waterfall on the beach, a super cool sea cave with rock cairns, and a gorgeous secret waterfall off the beaten path, helping us with picture taking and camera lighting recommendations and overall making this a delightful adventure!

It was an awesome experience and we got a lot of beautiful fotos and memories. Jennifer is a very funny and entertaining person. She got us even gluten free canadian beer for surprise. We could choose a great lunch from Shirley delicious cafe which offered gluten free options too. The hike was not that hard and the view was very scenic. Thank you Jennifer!
