While you’re planning your special event; remember to organize some amazing outdoor activities. You can do everything from group kayaking in the Broken Group Islands to ocean cruises, surfing or soring throw the air ziplining… there is so much to do you may want to stay for the honeymoon! Check out our West Coast activities page for some great ideas.

Ucluelet is a coastal climate in a beautiful temperate rainforest. We get a ton more sun than people realize; so pack for three seasons in a day. From full sun, to dramatic misty morning fog, then maybe some rain, weather changes are normal. Most venues can accommodate inside and outside events easily, and the rainforest canopy can help protect any event. Marquee tents are always a great option when doing your planning.

PS: Don’t forget to pack your gumboots to get your quintessential west coast beach photo!
