PRIVATE ISLAND TOURS
Experience an exceptional outdoor day excursion to a private West Coast island paradise. Spectacular coastal scenery, fascinating sea life and succulent west coast cuisine, combined with light eco adventure, make this an exciting must do experience for anyone visiting British Columbia.
You will travel by ferry to the glorious Sunshine Coast and onto the quaint seaside town of Sechelt. The highlight of the trip is a 1.2 hectare coastal gem, South Trail Island, offering panoramic views and breathtaking photo opportunities. Join our guided tour along pristine trails through an ancient emerald green forest. Relish a gourmet picnic lunch on a sun dappled terrace or retreat to one of the many private mosaic picnic tables scattered around the island.
Everyone receives a treasure map to explore the island's many trails and fragrant gardens. Hike to the summit of the island, where you can see as far as Mt. Baker in Washington State. Listen to stories of local folklore and learn about the healing powers of trees and berries indigenous to coastal areas.
The Spooky and Crazy Tree Trails showcase the Arbutus Tree, whose red, twisted branches are a characteristic sight of the Pacific North West. On the Sleepy Tree Trail, you can see a 500 year old Douglas Fir, felled by the mighty winds of the Georgia Strait, that has become a nurse tree to young plant life. For added adventure, your map provides clues to help you discover the Secret Garden, hidden among flowered paths and fruity orchards.
Humming birds, eagles, harbour seals and beautiful tidal pools full of sea life are just some of the highlights on this tour. Travelers may also have an opportunity to spot Orca whales, sea lions or porpoises. Make sure you bring your walking shoes, layered clothing, swim suit and sun screen to enjoy this adventure to the maximum.
You will have wonderful memories of this magical day in paradise long after you have left the fresh sea air and sunshine behind. Majestic South Trail Island is nature at its best.
