History of Accommodation in Ucluelet
Ucluelet has changed dramatically over the last 20 years and has gone from being a commercial fishing and logging town, to being a tourist draw, partially benefiting from Tofino’s 1.2 visitors annually and the exposure for Pacific Rim National Park by the Canadian government via the media. Water’s Edge Resort, formerly Tauca Lea and Black Rock Resort are two large accommodation places for visitors that have increased the town’s tourist draw. The Ridge and Primera are two Condominiums on the same side as Black Rock that are modern concepts overlooking the ocean that have been built in the last 10 years. Waters Edge was the first resort with individual ownership that came to Ucluelet and started a wave of new building as people started looking to improve the town.
The Village of Ucluelet has tried to work hard to keep new subdivisions with a west coast flavor of Cedar siding around the new condos and houses. Many older houses have been updated for increased real estate value or to house B&B rooms or guest suites to take care of Ucluelet’s busy July and August season. It used to be that you couldn’t find a room if you came in August as a drop in traveler. You will still have to look around, but if you call the information center, you can find last minute accommodation.
Fishing is a large draw for Ucluelet now in the way of sport fishing. Ucluelet is considered of the top places in the world for numbers of Chinook salmon. It is possible that the waters off Ucluelet see more Chinook salmon than anywhere else on the coast of Vancouver Island because of the many feeding grounds located off shore.
Whale watching, Kayaking, and hiking are also great activites. Since Ucluelet is so close to Tofino, many people head north as least a few of the days to check out Tofino’s many beaches and trails. Surfing is also close by and there are two surf shops in Ucluelet to get you on your way.
