              Car: Recommended

              When it comes to marine activities, few places in the world can rival the Vancouver Island region. The huge range of options, the outstanding quality of the experiences, and the awe-inspiring scenery - it's a marine activity paradise. CANOEING: Horne Lake - paddle surrounded by towering limestone cliffs; guided Sunset Paddles are available in summer months. SURFING: Tofino - people call it Surf City, Canada, and with good reason. It's the only place with a road right to the beaches where surfs up. Long beach and Chesterman Beach, where the waves break on gradual sandy shores, are good for all levels. DIVING: the Jacques Cousteau Society rates Vancouver Island's waters second only to the Red Sea for clarity and diversity of marine life. BOATING and SAILING: The Straight of Georgia and surrounding region has some of the finest boating and sailing opportunities in the world. Magical areas like the Gulf Islands, Barkley Sound, Clayoquot Sound, desolation Sound, Discovery Islands draw boaters from all over the world. FISHING: If your idea of escape and adventure is battling a huge halibut, an acrobatic coho salmon, or a feisty steelhead, then this is your dream destination. The central Vancouver Island region (Oceanside - Campbell River) has saltwater and freshwater fishing adventures for everyone, all year long.
