Vancouver Island provides an enchanting combination of the rugged outdoors and small town living, with Victoria, a charming 19th-century city at one end, and comfortable seaport villages at the other. Off its coast lie the Gulf Islands, famous for secluded coves, lovely beaches and idyllic lifestyle.

The overall atmosphere is one of relaxation, mild climate and friendly people. Main attractions include killer and gray whale-watching; gorgeous forests and national parks; world-famous salmon, trout, bass and steelhead fishing; island-hopping on the ferries; and exploring the wilderness at the north end of Vancouver Island.
