In 2002, we spent 3 weeks circumnavigating Vancouver Island.  It was a fast trip and we covered 900 nautical miles in that time.   Here are some photos from our trip down the West Coast of Vancouver Island from that adventure.

Don't miss the second page and third page of photos from this trip!

Early morning, Klaskino Anchorage

We loved this anchorage. Super protected, beautiful scenery, monsterous mooring bouys. There is a lovely little waterfall nearby, some great beaches to explore and we even had whales come into the anchorage and under the boat at dusk! Highly recommended.

Waterfall at Klaskino Anchorage

Near the anchorage area is a lovely little waterfall with a perfact wading pool for the kids.
