PACIFIC MARINE CIRCLE ROUTE

The Pacific Marine Circle Route refers to a driving route around the southern tip of Vancouver Island. It is possible to drive the route in a single day, but is best appreciated when taken at a leisurely pace with time to make stops in the local region. There are a number of charming places to stay and eat along the way, and the route offers breathtaking views of unique west coast rugged landscape and ocean vistas. There is something for everyone amongst the activities on offer, including numerous hikes & walks, fishing expeditions, whale watching tours, outdoor adventures, craft breweries, local distilleries, artisanal food makers and quaint farms, to name a few. The Sooke Fine Arts Show could be your starting point on a wonderful Pacific Marine adventure!
