Best time to cruise the West coast of Vancouver Island?

S/V Fairhaven is gearing up to take a 3 week trip out to the west coast of Vancouver island this summer. I've been out there a couple times on a big powerboat and am eager to get out there sailing. Will be leaving from home in Anacortes and headed to the Broken Group in Barklay Sound and probably up to Uculet and Hot Springs cove.

For those that know the area, how does the last 3 weeks in June sound? Or perhaps the last week of June and first half of July?

Any particular tips for the area, places not to miss, nasty spots to avoid? Trips for coming out the straits and rounding the corner?

Can't wait to be sitting in the springs staring at my boat at anchor, or kayaking around Effingham bay.... So beautiful up there.


I have a sauna on my boat, therefore I win.
