Re: Barkley Sound, West Coast Vancouver Island

We clear customs at Oak Bay (just east of Victoria) because it's convenient for us from the San Juans and that allows us to stop wherever in case of bad weather. The customs dock at Bamfield where we used to clear is closed but Ucluelet isn't much further west and would be the best if crossing from Neah. Radar is a requirement as far as I'm concerned on the west coast of Van. Is. You can get fog or heavy rain any month of the year and it's not a forgiving area like inside.
