SCUBA DIVING ESCAPADE – Most people think of the tropics when they think of scuba diving, but the area around Vancouver has some of the best cold water scuba diving in the world. Scuba divers plunge into the frigid waters between Vancouver Island and the mainland to view spectacular marine species like the wolf eel and giant Pacific octopus, as well as a brilliant red coral found in only a few other places around the world. Cates Park in Deep Cove, as well as Whytecliff Park and Porteau Cove near Horseshoe Bay, are popular diving sites, and many Vancouver scuba enthusiasts get their feet wet here first. Many other sites provide a stunning backdrop for finding a sunken vessel. Some shipwrecks off the Malaspina Strait still yield buried treasures!

In the second half of the day, after lunch, it's time to try your hand at hiking in Vancouver.

Hiking or nature walking is one of the easiest ways to take in the mesmerizing views of sparkling waterways, lush rainforests and dramatic mountains that surround Vancouver.
