Down to Jamie's Whale Adventures for a 9:00am departure in search of whales. I decided it was much too easy to sit inside a large heated cabin cruiser and opted instead for an open 12 seater Zodiac inflatable boat.

The people helping us at Enterprise were also really nice. The guy convinced us to upgrade our car for an extra $5/day so we could get the brand-spanking new Mazda 3 outside their door. It was far roomier and nicer than the compact we had booked so we went for it without much convincing, actually.
On the road in our bright red car, we headed out of Nanaimo down the only road to Tofino. We tried to ...
