bears and elk in early october

by michelleava

where are good places to see bears on vancouver island in early october? Also, I have read there is a good chance of seeing elk around gold river. Any tips on exactly where to see them?

Re: bears and elk in early october

by SfumatoPants

Bears begin to hibernate in October so the longer you go into the month the fewer there will be.

As for your chances of seeing wildlife - it's wildlife! Animals are unpredictable. You can spend a lot of time and money to go and see something and there is no guarantee that it will show up for your amusement. This difficulty is compounded by it being October. Ungulates will be on the move, from high ground into the valleys, as the weather gets cold and forage stops growing.

Travel Tips for Vancouver Island

Telegraph Cove

by toonsarah

Telegraph Cove is a great place to spend a few days. The main things to do here are whale watching trips or wildlife tours to look for bears (I so wish we’d allowed time for both but we had to choose and the whales won – a good choice as my other tip should illustrate). You can also go out sports fishing, if that’s your thing, or kayaking. But with the exception of the whale watching we chose to spend our time relaxing and enjoying the village. If you’re keen on photography it’s a fascinating place – old wooden buildings in various colours, various quirky details etc.

For something different, check out the whale bones in the Whale Interpretive Centre at the end of the wharf – this vertebra really gives you a sense of the scale of these magnificent animals! When we were there the collection was pretty modest but checking various websites it seems to have grown considerably into a real museum, including the full skeleton of a fin whale.

Telegraph Cove is 11 kilometres from Hwy. 19 via Beaver Cove Road – 4 hours drive from Nanaimo

Map of Vancouver Island.

by a5floor

When I drove on Vancouver Island, I used a map inside a magazine called ´Vancouver Island, Victoria and the Gulf Islands 2005 Vacation Guide´. This is a really nice magazine. You can get this magazine at the Tourist Information Centre.
You also can check everything about Vancouver Island. I was driving from Nanaimo to Campbell River via route 19A. It is also called the Oceanside Route.

BC is RV friendly

by lucythedog

Aside from all the wonderful things about BC...its very Rv friendly...Each town has sanitary dump sites!! What a relief for my humans! I can poop anywhere...but in the RV, you sort of have to carry it around till you can dump it!!

Port Alberni

by sunnywong

Port Alberni is truly the Salmon Capital of the World - adjacent waters boast all five species of Pacific salmon. Port Alberni's harbour district is thick with tackle shops, boat rentals, and fishing charters. This is definitely one of the major hubs for angling on Vancouver Island and is the best resource centre for information on fishing locally in both saltwater and freshwater. Port Alberni has become known as the Gateway to the Pacific Rim - to the west is Ucluelet, Tofino and spectacular Long Beach. Port Alberni is also the starting point of a 102-km unpaved road to the village of Bamfield, and the start of the famous West Coast Trail.
