Re: Barkley Sound, West Coast Vancouver Island

I've read that I can clear customs at Ucluelet or Tofino if I wanted to cross from Neah Bay, has that changed? The link that I shared above recommended that approach and was updated in the last year.

We don't have radar. Delaying until next summer does give me time to prep that boat with radar and work on my high wind sail inventory. I knew fog was a serious problem in August, but didn't know how bad it would be later in the year. The boat that we go on could change between now and then, a friend who is interested in this trip is looking at boats one size increment larger than my own and may end up with something a bit better setup for this trip (including radar).
