We are sad to say that we have had to postpone our hiking experience until July 2020 to align ourselves with the Canadian Government directive to self isolate due to COVID 19. We reserve the right to cancel at any time due to suspected illness of either your Guide or a Guest. Please note the listed price is for 2. Contact me directly for pricing for odd numbered groups. During this niche hiking experience, you will explore one of the best beaches on the West Coast of Vancouver Island along the 45 km Juan de Fuca Trail- you will see first hand why they call this area the "Wild" West Coast. This local favorite has a vibe of its' own. The beach is well known for it's crashing surf, photography opportunities, views of Washington State, surfing and camping. At our destination, you will walk along the rocky beach and get to see cool tide pools and sea life, a rocky shoreline and a secret hidden waterfall. We will eat lunch at the beach and hopefully see some seals, eagles and otters. After lunch, we will be scrambling over large boulders while dodging the incoming tide to get to an amazing viewpoint of an untouched cove. (4km/2.5 miles total)
I'm a financial analyst by day, who is passionate about outdoor adventures and photography on Vancouver Island. I was born and raised on Vancouver Island and I love exploring the beauty this Island has to offer (and showing it off whenever I can)! Landscape photography is a passion of mine. I can provide any assistance required during this experience with camera settings, framing, setting up your scene etc. I can also provide guidance on photography opportunities on Southern Vancouver Island; the type of advice only a local can offer. I look forward to showing guests the amazing pacific northwest scenery and guiding them to photographic and hiking opportunities in this area that they may otherwise miss if they did not have access to local knowledge. If desired I can provide drone photography of your experience, please let me know.
