  • Probably one of the most beautiful places in Canada. A friend called it spiritual, it definitely is awe inspiring. During a stormy day with high winds, the power of the ocean is memorizing. The day...

  • Port Alberni inlet is gorgeous. The open waters of the west coast was just that. Open. The huge swells had me puking off the side of the boat. Once we moved inside broken island chain it was calm as was I. Fishing was amazing. Needs to be seen.
  • very nice places and landscape. parking should be cheaper and opened earlier in the morning. Also watch out some trails sections are very badly maintained ; some wooden board are missing from the many platforms, some are so damaged that it is dangerous to walk on them. Especially Shorepine bug trail, Florencia to southbeach/Wikaninish beach. The beach parking lots are always closed in the morning and only opened at 8 am Its almost never possible to surf before work early in the morning. Very often the bathrooms are very clean.
