      Vancouver Island is not a journey for the faint of heart or those unprepared. This is the wild Pacific Ocean and it has constant swells and large waves and conditions change rapidly, turn left and the next stop is Japan. The few marinas are rustic at best, often with no water or power. T hen, in summer , we cruised the Inside Passage to the north of Vancouver Island, getting some open-ocean experience in small doses. T he swells took a little getting used to, but we soon felt comfortable enough that the experience inspired us to take on the circumnavigation of Vancouver Island the following summer.
