Canada's largest tree, who wants to see this living giant? #gianttrees #naturephotography
Missing those clear skies today. Wish the skies would open up and take care of those forest fires. I had an awesome photoshoot planned this past weekend but I couldn’t see more than 4 feet in front of me so I cancelled it. Can’t wait for this to to pass
Enjoying those last moments of the day at the Cove with someone close to you is always special! #mycrystalcove 📷 : jamiemarsh - - - - - #tofino #yourtofino #vanisle #vancouverisland #sharevi #explorebc #beautifulbc #pnw #pnwonderland #pnwcollective #explorecanada #vancouverislandguide #canadassurfhwy #sunset

Step into the Marine Center and find out about the wildlife tours, fishing charters, or get a ticket for the water taxi! We have so many boats going out every day... the friendly people in the Marine Center can get you sorted 👍
| A M O N G S T | G I A N T S | . . . Always love stopping at Cathedral Grove on my way to the outer coast. These old growth friendly giants are magic. You can almost sense a peace about them. Protecting them all is paramount. #victoriabuzz #victoriahype #sharethecoast #explorebc #explorevictoria #explorevancouverisland #explore #oldgrowth #oldgrowthforest #vancouverislandguide #wonderfulvancouverisland #britishcolumbia #bcisbeautiful #victoriaviews #cascadiaexplored #mec #sitka #trees #opcmag #exploremag #canoncanada #cathedralgrove #vancouverisland #explorecanada #bcparks #sharevi #weathernetwork #gianttrees #docksidephysio
The perfect place to watch the sunset... perhaps with a glass of wine! Did you know, there are red adirondack chairs set in special spots throughout Canadian parks? They are meant to provide a place to sit, connect with others & take in the view 👌 Ours are unofficial but the sentiment is the same!

Habt du den Blogpost zu Vancouver Island 🇨🇦 schon gesehen? Dort gibts wirklich wunderschöne Unterkünfte. Auch wenn das Wetter mal nicht mitmacht, kann ich mir gut vorstellen dort am Strand mit einer Decke am Feuer zu sitzen. Hach. ❤️ • • #tofino #vancouverisawesome #vancouver #britishcolumbia #sharevi #tofinobound #reisefieber #vancouverbc #travelcanada #exploretocreate #wanderlust #explorecanada #vancouverisland #tofinotravel #bcparks #tofinobc #kanadareisen #mybc #explorevancouverisland #tofinobeach #strand #vancouverislandguide #explorebc #beach #kanada #explorevi #cabins #lodge #woods #canada
Daydreaming...😎 #tongueouttuesday

You can hike the same trail over and over and still discover new places, like this hidden gem on the Juan de Fuca Trail. A short 2 minute hike down from the campsite, hidden in the woods, took us to this beautiful, rocky beach #nofilter There were over 20 tents set up at Little Kuitshe Creek but only a handful of people discovered this. Lucky we are! . . . . #hikebc #vancouvertrails #hikesnearvancouver #discoverbc #hellobc #travelbc #bctrails #beautifulbc #adventurebc #hikelife #getoutside #mecnation #explorecanada #vancitywilds #vancouverisland #vancouverislandguide #juandefucatrail #juandefuca #westcoasttrail #pacificcoast #pnwlife #outdoorvancouver #bcparks #littlekuitshecreek #sombriobeach #amazingvancouverisland #explorevancouverisland #victoriabuzz #vanisle
I think we only stayed up for sunsets twice on this trek as we were so tired by the end of the day! But this one was our ultimate favourite at Calvin Falls beach. There was a ridiculous amount of seagulls that called this beach home, and of course Autumns favourite thing to do was to run straight in to the group and scare them into flight lol #autumnexplorations
this tree is older than 800 years 🌲 #vancouverisland #vancouverislandguide #cathedralgrove
I think I've become a little obsessed with #sanjosephbay but, really, can you blame me! 😍

Always wanting to know what’s at the end of the trail.
All this smoke and fog today made for a bit of a strange day... But no less magical. We had some incredible moments today with the A30s and A25s. So many spyhops to see... Lots of playfulness from the babies - tail lobs and bubble blowing! We even saw a humpback whale amongst the mist - and listened to their deep blows as we watched the orca forage and spyhop throughout the day. Another busy day out there! . . .

Just had an amazing weekend up island being toured around by @colourful_cassandra ; lots of smoke in the area so we didn't get some of the views we wanted from a mountain that we summited but still found some awesome sights. The smoke made everywhere very moody. I'll be posting highlights of the trip over the next week as I get a chance to edit them. #outfitandexplore #explorebc #campbellriver #islandlife #camping #beautifulbc #bc #sharevi #sharethecoast #photooftheday #pnwisbest #pnw #outdoors #adventureisnecessary #hiking #adventure #nature #hikelife #choosemountains #ourplanetdaily #awesomeearth #vancouverisland #bcisbeautiful #vancouverislandguide #explorevancouverisland #wildernessculture #wonderfullvancouverisland #centralvanisle
This is Darcy, a bricklayer from Vancouver who fell in love with Victoria one weekend. Now he lives here. He does what we do and goes exploring. We both came across this incredible found art structure that has been on this shoreline for nearly 20 years. It was created by #richrico #shereezielke #victoriabc #explorebc #victoriaviews #songheeswalkway #dailyviewvictoria #vancouverislandguide #vancouverisland #vancouverislandphotographer #vancouverislandlife #driftwoodart #bymyself #sololife
The Heerman’s Gull can only be found on the shoreline of Victoria at this time of year. Unlike other Gulls it does not venture inland.
Lunch at the Shady Rest, besides not being able to see even a little bit of Lasqueti island due to smoke from fires all around us - BABY DEER!! I just heard that on the air quality index of 1-10, we are an 11!!

Fog equals feeling like you’re in a glass globe. Add smoke and it’s an eerie feeling.

This is the one place I wish I would have went for a swim when I was on the island was such calm and warm water.

One more photo of this gorgeous point on Saturna Island 💛 . . . . I guess posting ten squares from a three day visit to this tiny island is a pretty good indicator of how much we enjoyed it. The pace is slow (very), the views are lovely, and I had a feeling of general peacefulness the whole time. #saturnaisland
It’s not necessarily a bad thing to find yourself walking around in a fog... #mytofino
When the waves get nice and gnarly, @gnarcheologist is one dude you can always count on to give a nasty left a closer inspection.

Victoria was a nice place to visit, so many good food there especially seafood. A great place to go as there isn’t any phone signal there so u can get out of your phone while going out for a walking, doing some sightseeing or visiting museums/castles/old buildings. Next time I go there I must visit a castle. Hope to go to Victoria again with my family. @sherry_ha #vancouverisland #explorebc #vancouverislandphotographer #victoriabc #vancouverislandlife #vancouverislandguide #vancouverislandbc #explorevancouverisland #canada #vancouverislandartist #yyj #hellobc #vanisle #vegan #beautifulbc #westcoast #britishcolumbia #vancouverislanduniversity #nanaimo #vancouverislandphotography #vancouverislandnorth #vancouverislandtourism #vancouverislandweddingphotographer #vancouverislandvegan #vancouverislandtattoo #pnw #bc #vancouverislandhandmade #nature #vancouverislandweddings
