    The poor folks at bamfield could be raking in some easy cash if it weren’t for the stupid cbp rules, there are 4 telephone sites on the inside but squat on the outside ? What, a telephone too expensive?

    Used to go over to Bamfield all the time in the 90's from Neah and stay at Trails End Landing. Bamfield was a port of entry at the time and you could fish Canadian Swiftsure with an internet license. The trip's not too bad but had weather kick up nasty on a couple crossings. Wouldn't do it in anything less than a super seaworthy 24'er. Would go out to swiftwure, catch our halibut then go into the sound for lings, rockfish, salmon, crab and shrimp. Would feast like kings for 2-3 days and play in the sound then hit up the bank again on the way home for another limit of halibut.

    Yes. Make the trip from Everett to Barkley Sound every summer. Stop for fuel in Neah Bay to get fuel and then continue on to clear customs at Ucluelet. Fish offshore each day and anchor up at night in Effingham bay.

    This year I plan on running the outside all the way to Winter Harbor. Used to trailer up on a smaller boat as a kid and actually prefer going up by water.

    Yea! Nice trip!!
    That’s the second input I have gotten that points me to Ucluelet to clear customs, a crapload better than Victoria:)

    Thanks!
