Places We've Been and Really Like - Broken Group Islands, BC, Canada

On the SW edge of Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada you will find a very special group of islands - The Broken Group. Never mind that it has become a must-visit place for paddlers (it can be a bit crowded in the campsites in the height of summer). It is, quite simply, beautiful. There are relatively protected islands on the inside as well as more exposed (next stop: Japan) islands farther out. You will see whales, seals, many bird species, and sea creatures on the shore. The camping is stunning and paddling reveals sea caves, hidden inlets and rocky coastal places of stunning beauty.

We've been there many times and find it still serves up surprises. Don't miss it, OK?
