Canada turns 150 in 2017. What better way to celebrate Canada’s sesquicentennial than enjoying her natural beauty experiencing her seas, lakes, and rivers! Here are our top 10 insider tips on the best ways to explore the waters of Vancouver’s North Shore.

8. Bowen Island
Within reach, beyond compare Bowen Island is a quiet, forested island within arms reach of the North Shore. Only a enjoyable 20-minute ferry ride away from Horseshoe Bay in West Vancouver, it makes for an idyllic day excursion during your trip to Vanouver’s North Shore. Known as “Vancouver’s Best Kept Secret” it offers a taste of the simple life, away from the stresses of the big city. For a small island it offers a big range of activities: shop for island-made gifts at Artisan Square, visit the world’s tiniest candy store, try your hand at axe throwing (a local’s favourite), have a game of golf at Bowen Island Golf Club, or stop for lunch at one of the Island’s many restaurants, pubs, cafes, and bakeries.
