We were staying in North Vancouver for a few nights and Deep Cove was a very easy 10 minute drive from our hotel (Holiday Inn). It was a sunny Sunday afternoon (1st Oct). The Cove is beautiful, there were people out kayaking and the place in general was very busy. On the down side we had difficulty parking, but after driving around for a few minutes we got lucky & found a spot at the top of the hill (Rockcliff Rd). We had a coffee at the very nice Bear Cafe. Deep Cove is really lovely for a walk around and definately worth a visit if you are in the area.
