Alert Bay Vacations
Staying in only one place, regardless of its popularity, will only ever furnish you with a narrow window into the broader rhythms and life-ways of a region. So be sure to delve into Vancouver Island's other natural and man-made attractions. You may also wish to check out Sullivan Bay, 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the south, and Port Hardy 25 miles (40 kilometers) to the east.
Head to Vancouver Island's history museums. These are great destinations to hang out, particularly when the weather is less than perfect.
Those searching for an adrenaline rush can get their fix by joining a mountain climbing or horse riding adventure. Take your own equipment or rent it locally, and discover the region's water activities. Surfing is one option. Another good option is wind surfing.
Be aware, if you are likely to be in Canada around the 1st of July, Canada Day is widely observed then and some attractions may have different opening hours to normal.
There is a common proverb that the world is a book and those who don't take the time to travel remain on the same page day after day after day. So book your trip and discover the delights to be found in Vancouver Island.
