I've found a good recommended route is to ride victoria island, ferry from Port Rupert to Prince Hardy then ride from there. About $400, arrive fresh.
PM me if you want to discuss possibilities further.
Ferry from Prince Rupert to Port Hardy...that's 350 miles, all within BC. It'd take 15+ hours on ferry, or you could ride that distance in 5 hours.
