Situated west of Vancouver, this Island is the largest on the Pacific Coast and contains an extremely rich natural world. Despite its fairly small size (469 km x 50-80 km), the island contains everything that can be found in the province, but on a more compact scale; beginning with the province’s elegant capital, Victoria, and ending in impassable hunting territories. The best fishing in the province is here! Here also is the longest sandy beach, where tourists from the world over come to appreciate the might of the Pacific Ocean’s surf. Here also is a popular gathering place for windsurfing and diving enthusiasts. The island’s national parks with its old-growth forests defy all descriptions! And amid all this luxury are scattered exclusive SPA salons, which can be accessed only by hydroplane or motor yacht. Generally, not a single island visit passes without an aquatic safari, in which we take to the oceans and observe the whales. We also visit places housing ancient native totem-poles in villages where the indigenous peoples have lived for millennia.
