Initial planning for Vancouver and Tofino in September

Jump to last reply

I am starting to plan for our trip to Canada in September. It's quite a bit cheaper for us to fly into Seattle than Vancouver. I've looked at several different possibilities and this is the best, although I dislike having to backtrack…since I do, I'm looking for the most interesting way to do it.

Please provide feedback and any suggestions you might have for how I might need to change this. We have a total of 12 days and nights. Leave early on September 3rd to fly to Seattle. Take the late train to Vancouver. Spend 5 nights in Vancouver.

Take a seaplane to Tofino (is this the best way to travel or should we rent a car?). Spend 2-3 days in the area.

This is what I haven't really figured out. Should we go to Victoria and spend the night? If so, how to get there? If we rent a car in Tofino and drop off in Victoria, would there be a drop off fee like in the states? Is there a way to get from Tofino to Seattle? Ideally, we would like to spend 2-3 days in Seattle before leaving the area.

Should I somehow flip the trip and spend the first few days in Seattle and then go to Vancouver?

Thanks for any insight.
