Ucluelet is the quintessential West Coast Village. Our unique location offers unparalleled scenery, and our rich history and recent commercial development give us both small fishing village and modern west coast look. Our abundant parks, forests, mountains, rivers and unsurpassed access to the wild Pacific Ocean gives extraordinary filming options. Rural, urban or remote wilderness settings can all be found within minutes of the village core, and all are easily accessible. Whatever your script calls for, you can find it in Ucluelet.
Ucluelet is a three hour drive from Nanaimo and coming from Vancouver adds a scenic, two hour ferry ride.
