AHOY Authentic Experiencers

Your name says it all. Experiences of unspoiled nature and meeting the locals are your travel motivations. Well, you’ve come to the right place.

This is one of the best places on earth to view marine and terrestrial wildlife, then slip into a resort marina for some comforts. If you don’t own a boat, we recommend you visit Adventure Tour Charters. The Gulf Islands, Vancouver Island East and Sunshine Coast regions have abundant resorts, kayak rentals and tour providers. Enjoy the sea and return to comfort or a rustic cabin.

As an authentic experiencer, you will be drawn to our First Nations and small coastal communities. We recommend that you visit West Coast Aboriginal Culture. Our coastal communities share a common west coast culture, but each one of them has a unique flavour. Visit Communities to learn what each community has to offer in culture and adventure. Or use the Search Tools on our interactive map to select communities to visit.
