Re: West Coast Vancouver Island - Up Hill

I don't recall any significant currents when we did the Victoria - Bamfield run over 15 hours in calm conditions. Lots of fog, but little current.

We did not consider Port San Juan. Straight through to Bamfield with a 4 am start. Port Renfrew/San Juan just didn't look inviting in the least.
