Vancouver is great, but it’s easy to feel as though you’ve seen and done everything in the city 10 times over. That’s why a little break away can be exactly what you need.
Up until now, getting to these beautiful coastal destinations meant a lengthy (and expensive) ferry and drive. But that’s now a thing of the past as Pacific Coastal Airlines is running a new daily service between Vancouver Airport’s South Terminal (YVR) and Tofino—Long Beach Airport (YAZ).
And the flight is just 45 minutes long.
To celebrate, Pacific Coastal Airlines is offering a 72-hour sale for Daily Hive readers for 50% off all bravo and classic fares if you book before midnight on Thursday, March 22! You’ll find all the details you need below.
Step onboard a comfortable 19-seat aircraft and prepare for one heck of a scenic flight.
You’ll want to take in every moment of this breathtaking journey which soars over BC’s most spectacular landscape. Tofino is world-renowned for its wild natural scenery, ancient rainforest, lakes, and crashing waves, which you’ll get to see before you touch down.
One thing that you’ll want to add to your wanderlust list in Tofino is surfing. The coastal town offers some of the best surfing conditions in the world – no joke. Rent a board (and a wetsuit), get a lesson and ride the waves at Cox Bay Beach.
Ucluelet is just a 25-minute drive from the airport along a beautiful coastal road. With clean ocean air, stunning coastal walks, towering temperate rainforests, and wicked storm watching, Ucluelet is nature at its most powerful. FYI, surfing conditions around this town are also epic and the Wild Pacific Trail is a must-do.
Both towns offer a relaxed seaside pace of life with arguably the most incredible seafood offerings you’ll find along the west coast. Plus, they’re ridiculously Instagram-worthy. And now you can visit them this summer, for less!
Pacific Coastal also offers an option to purchase shuttle service from the airport to Tofino or Ucluelet when you buy your flight. Easy as pie.
