Off to Vargas Island

I am off to visit Vargas Island with friends for the Victoria Day long weekend. We will drive to Tofino on the west coast of Vancouver Island, catch a boat to Vargas Island, hike across the island, and camp on the far shore. I'm expecting it to be fun. When I get back home to Nanaimo, I'll let you know how it went.

Hi! Saw your website on google search. We are planning to go to Vargas Island for camping too. I'm interested to know if you rented a boat to go there and how much it costs? Thanks!

Hi caffeinated C,

We hired a water shuttle from Tofino Water Taxi. One of the members of our party, Sue, phoned them and booked the shuttle ahead of time.

When the man dropped us off on Vargas Island, we arranged for him to pick us up again at a pre-appointed time (3.00 p.m., two days later). He arrived promptly at the arranged time.

For a party of eight, the return trip cost C$25 per person.

I think I heard Sue say that, if there had been fewer people, the cost per person would have been C$30 per person or something like that.

There was no charge for camping on Vargas Island.

Hope that helps.
