    I can't believe this isn't on the list, as it is our all time FAVOURITE thing to do with kids (and just us as a couple) when we come to Ucluelet:
    Scavenge the beach for shells and rocks (there are SO many, we especially love Florencia Bay for this).
    Photograph the morning mist at Long Beach or Florencia Bay.

    Love this place.
