Suggest to attend the first of July celebrations "Canada Day", in Sidney. It's big and fun with water competitions, games, market place and fireworks right next to the harbor. Book asap.

After that work you way north, any place where you can anchor, dock or gunk hole all the way to New Castle or time permitting to Desolation Sound and beyond. There are plenty of good quality marina's everywhere

You're good for a great, wonderful and unforgettable time. Best part, it's just about half price given our floundering CAN dollar

Around Campbell River is nice , I spent 4 years in the early 90's sailing out of Campbell River in a 1970 Venture 22 SK . Quadra island, Cortez , Desolation Sound . Just watch your tide changes and currents ,Seymour Narrows has quite the force to it .
Also be aware of the tugs towing barges ,I remember stories of boaters hitting the tow cable in fog .
