What you'll do

The perfect escape to a rugged coastline, inter-tidal pools, towering hemlocks, moss covered maple trees and the stunning fjord of the Indian Arm. This 4 hours adventure includes a boat trip, swimming options and cheese fondue! Our adventure begins at Cates Park, in North Vancouver, where sandy beaches and forests collide. After a brief introduction we will board a private boat and glide across the water keeping our eye out for seals. After a short 10 minutes boat trip we will arrive at Belcarra Park. Here we will hop ashore and begin exploring the rugged coastline, inter-tidal pools, towering hemlocks, and moss covered maple trees. Our hike is 6-7km and follows the Admiralty Point Trail before connecting to the Jug Island Trail and delivering us to the stunning Jug Island Beach. After a little cheese fondue, our private boat will appear for pick up and include a scenic boat tour of Twin islands before returning us to Cates Park. Our hike is an intermediate level and journeys through some steep sections and uneven terrain. Boat drop-off and collection from Belcarra Park is rugged and requires stepping directly in to the ocean to paddle ashore.

I love being outdoors, off the beaten path and sharing the stunning places I find with others!

I have been on hundreds of outdoors adventures and have lots of knowledge to share and more than one trick, to make every day in the great outdoors a day to remember.
