dillybar is on a distinguished road
West Coast Vancouver Island - Up Hill

Part of our Summer trip this year will include a leg from Victoria to the Tofino area. I notice on the chart that there is a seasonal current that flows 2 knots north west in the winter and 1 1/2 knots south east in the summer.
My question for those that have done the trip is:
Can I expect a full 1 1/2 Knots on the nose all the way up? Does the tide change affect this current appreciably? Does the distance from shore or water depth make any difference?
Thanks for any input.
