Description
Paddle along the tranquil shores on the east coast of Vancouver Island. Relax in our oceanfront hot tub while watching the eagles soar and cruise ships passing by. Gather around a beach bonfire. Enjoy ...More clams/oysters picked from our beach. Hike on trails through pristine local forests. Enjoy a round of golf at one of the sixteen golf courses within an hours drive. Centrally located for day trips to many points of interest on Vancouver Island. Kayak rentals are available to paddle our tranquil Oceanfront. Four runs of salmon pass by us between May and October. Fishers from around the world cast/fly fish from shore or belly boats. we have a giant tide pool, which acts as a hands on aquarium for the kids to see the many species that get caught up every tide changes. We also have a shellfish research station near by that has live tanks, and tours that explains about the many species they will find. Please call in advance if you have a service animal to get an accurate quote for cleaning. Less
