I hope not  anyways. There is a PGA size golf course opening (unless it is already opened?) in Ucluelet. I have friends that opened a B&B in Tofino a few years ago and it is a constant stress to keep things indie.

Tofino never seems to be over run with tourists.  They're THERE....but it never seems to be 'hectic'.  Long Beach and area, have really done some smart marketing.  They feature storm season as one of their peak times.  And rightly so.  A hotel room on the beach, with a roaring fireplace and/or a hot tub, with a view of some spectacular ocean action.  Genius.

The west coast is almost an any season time for whale sighting.....but I'm sure there are more peak times than others.

  I remember driving past an area a few minutes from home, and spotting a pod of whales.  Traffic (as small as it was) came to a standstill, and everyone had cameras, binoculars and camcorders out.  We actually followed them all the way down island.  We'd drive for a bit, then pull of the highway to the beach and wait and watch as they caught up.

  The baby whale had got himself turned around....and the pilot whale was relentless in trying to guide the little guy back into the pod.  It was so dramatic.  The pod doesn't wait....and it was like watching a cliff hanger to see if they caught up with the pod.  We followed  it for over an hour and a half.  It was truly a most fabulous event.

Mr LM and I had a bit of a "trapped" feeling on the Island.  After the last ferry and the last plane have left for the night, you're DOOMED!

 yeah I used to get the trapped feeling a lot here for the first couple of months. Now it's not really a big deal. I figured out though that the island will punish you if you don't get out of the towns and cities to explore the scenery/wilderness. Especially when you've got nobody to talk to on the weekends.

It kinda bugs me that you need to pay to get on the ferry. It's part of the Trans Canada highway.
