A new Knuckles for Ucluelet

Ucluelet’s beloved mascot Knuckles the Grey Whale is in line for an upgrade.

Coun. Dario Corlazzoli said Tourism Ucluelet is currently investigating options for a new Knuckles costume.

Knuckles will continue to be a locally representative grey whale but a new outfit will allow Knuckles to handle the West Coast’s wet weather and therefore attend more events, according to Ucluelet chamber of commerce executive director Sue Payne.
