Hidden inlets. Sandy beaches. Rocky shores.
With 3,340km (2,137 miles) of coastline and thousands of lakes and rivers, Vancouver Island offers no end of water activities. Snorkeling, diving, sailing. Kayaking, whale watching, or just soaking in a natural hot spring. Whether you crave a fresh or saltwater adventure, you’ll find it here on Vancouver Island.
Within the 3,340km (2,137 mile) coastline of Vancouver Island, you’ll find countless spaces to escape and places to connect. As waves crash upon the pebbles of French Beach, the power of the surf merges with the deeper serenity of the changing tide. Watch closely as children explore the secret world of tidal pools in Cape Scott Provincial Park, and you just might glimpse the people they will become.
And there’s so much more than ocean. Almost 10,000 lakes fed by springs, streams, rivers, and aquifers mean you could spend lifetimes here and still not see it all. Trout fishing, canoeing, and paddle boarding are just a few ways to let the cool, clear water – natural and pure – touch your own wild heart.
If water is your true element, you’ll find the connection you need on Vancouver Island.
Dive in. The water’s perfect.
