Living in the Coast Mountains offers many recreational opportunities. However, the ocean near Squamish often gets overlooked as an adventure destination.

Living in the Coast Mountains offers many recreational opportunities. However, the ocean near Squamish often gets overlooked as an adventure destination. Last September my family and I booked a wakesurfing trip through Squamishadventure.com and had a fantastic day on the water.

The Howe Sound fjord is stunning. The views of Shannon Falls, Diamond Head, and The Chief were incredible as we pulled back into harbour after an amazing day.

This is a not-to-miss trip if you are in Squamish, Whistler, or Vancouver. (collapse)

Prior to my trip to Vancouver I searched online for stuff to do. Renting a boat caught my eye as I had never done this before. From the wonderful reviews I read online, Granville Island Boat Rentals was the company to go with. After the helpful and friendly staff explained all the different routes my friend and I could take, we decided on the seal colony adventure. The rocks were packed with seals, we were amazed how many were there. The boat trip was awesome and the best part of my holiday. This is a must do in Vancouver. (collapse)

As a resident of Victoria, BC, I love taking trips to the beautiful beaches of Tofino because it's just a short five hour drive from home. During that time I get to admire the breathtaking scenery that surrounds the beloved Vancouver Island. The contrast from the rolling green mountain tops to the Pacific blue waves is amazing and being engulfed in a glorious rainforest makes for a wonderful journey full of epic sights. Cathedral Grove, home to a famous, 157-hectare stand of ancient Douglas Fir trees, is about two hours before you enter Tofino. Only 16 km east of Port Alberni this gorgeous spot is a huge tourist attraction that draws visitors from all over the world.

Once you hit Tofino, the possibilities are endless! Kayaking, hiking, boat tours, surfing and more... you name it...Tofino's got it! The white sandy beaches are a sight for sore eyes during the day and there's always great food everywhere you go. I absolutely love gazing into the harbour in town while I enjoy some fresh local seafood and glass of plush wine. Whether you're camping or staying in a cute little cabin resort, you're guaranteed a good nights sleep. Tofino rocks! (collapse)

When I travel to B.C., one of the first places I like to visit is Agassiz. For four generations now, we have loved the lush forest, stunning walking paths, and amazing farmland. On the top of the hill is a big house with a swing in the yard that was owned by Mrs. Limbert and run as a boys' home during the Depression. My dad, Don Stefanzio, grew up there. He was often lonely and would hike in the area. He developed a love of the beauty and became a well-known artist, I believe very much because of this gorgeous place. My heart goes there even now as I sit in my home in Winnipeg. My dad eventually moved to Manitoba, married and had a family, but Agassiz would always have his heart. Four generations of my family have travelled there and experienced all you have to offer throughout your beautiful province. A piece of my heart will always be there, too. Myself, my children and husband, and last year even my granddaughter Rianna, have been captivated by this amazing countryside. (collapse)

Sturgeon fishing on the Fraser River

The sun was coming up over the green hills and starting to turn the early morning surface of the Fraser River to gold. The rush of the water under the jetboat hull, the flying spray, and the muted roar of the engine were an overload on the senses.

We reached a place the guide picked out where the river bottom had a hole that sturgeon like to hang out in. The lines were rigged and the bait cast off the stern to sit on the bottom.

The water is muddy so a sturgeon picks up the scent of the bait in the water and finds it by feel with barbels on its lower jaw. Then the fun starts as it sucks in the bait and the hook is set. Sturgeon up to 12 feet long and 1200 lbs are caught every year.

On our trip we caught a few fish. The biggest was 300 lbs and I was glad it was the biggest. We took turns getting this guy in and my arms felt it the next day! http://www.flickr.com/photos/dflee/820128678/ right to left - David Lee, guide, Moreah Lee, Heather Lee in the boat.
