Living on the Edge in Ucluelet, British Columbia

Ucluelet is a village and resort community of around 1,753 people, located on the West Coast of Vancouver Island set against the dramatic and rugged Pacific Ocean and sheltered by the inner harbour. Called the "Safe Harbour" (Ucluelet is a Nuu-chah-nulth First Nation word meaning 'safe harbour' or 'safe landing place'), Ucluelet is surrounded by islands, inlets and rainforest, and offers a place to explore, rejuvenate and 'live on the edge'.

In Ucluelet you can wander through town and stop to watch the bustle of the fishing charters, or spot sea lions, river otters or harbour seals playing in the water. Just steps away you can visit the Ucluelet Aquarium for an up close and personal look at the 'sea'. Something not to miss is a walk or hike along the Wild Pacific Trail where you will find breathtaking views at every turn. Activities are abundant in Ucluelet from fishing, scuba diving, nature cruises, to kayaking and whale watching.

Ucluelet is adjacent to Pacific Rim National Park and the UNESCO Biosphere Reserve and just a short drive away from Tofino.
