Once you’re all golfed out, as if that could happen, head out on a sunset tour with Prince of Whales Whale Watching, where you’ll have an opportunity to spot resident and transient orca (killer whale) pods, as well as gray, humpback, and minke whales. On your journey, you’ll likely spot sea lions, seals, porpoises and many types of marine birds. Bring a camera and get ready to discover the rugged beauty of Vancouver Island’s coastal waters.
Get Some “Fins” with your “Skins”
Picture waking up early to be the first out on some of the most prolific fishing grounds in the world and the thrill of wrestling and landing a big salmon while your mates cheer you on. In the afternoon, head to one of the local golf courses and enjoy a few hours of peaceful play at multi award-winning Storey Creek Golf Club or quaint and quiet Quadra Island Golf Club. Want a place to tell your “fish stories” with friends? Check out Campbell River Golf & Country Club’s Velocity Lounge and Driving Range and boast away while experiencing Western Canada’s only driving range with Toptracer technology.
Once you’re in the swing of things, you won’t want to stop, so it’s a good thing you can head to another terrific golf course the next morning, or customize your package to include extra rounds if desired.

Don’t Just Take Our Word for it…

If I could give them 8 stars, I would…I could not have planned it any better if I was doing it myself and the trip was one of the best we have taken. It was very easy and completely planned for us!… The places we stayed were all fantastic and the rooms excellent. We seemed to get the best rooms in the lodges and their choices were fantastic… The fish gods were with us and we both caught beautiful Chinook’s from a small Whaler with Bald Eagles flying off our balcony. The other places were equally as nice and the golf is as good as it gets… We have been wanting to go on this for a while so anybody reading this, just roll the dice and do it!
