Tourism Ucluelet RV and Knuckles the Whale depart May 1 on Cross-Canada adventure

Tourism Ucluelet's Kick Back & Coast RV

Tourism Ucluelet is going on the road in a unique marketing tour this spring and summer. On May 1, 2013 the Tourism Ucluelet team and Knuckles the Whale are embarking on a two-month cross-country adventure that begins in St. John's, Newfoundland. They'll be traveling across Canada in a diesel powered RV, traveling 10,000km through all ten provinces and stopping at 26 cities and communities along the way. The tour is scheduled to arrive home in Ucluelet on Vancouver Island on June 24, 2013. 

The Tourism Ucluelet RV is a rolling visitors' center that houses videos and information about the wild, west side of Vancouver Island including Ucluelet, Pacific Rim National Park and Barkley Sound. The RV will be stopping at communities during events and festivals, hosting contests and competitions and giving away promotional materials and prizes.

"We live in one of of the most beautiful and natural places on the planet," said the couple. "We couldn't be more excited to share the wonders and delights of Ucluelet with as many Canadians as possible."
