Located only an hour and a half by ferry sailing from the British Columbia mainland, Vancouver Island sometimes feels like a world away. Drawn to the Island’s spectacular natural beauty, Michael has made it his home and has spent years exploring this marvel of the natural world.
Named after famed Royal Navy Captain George Vancouver who first explored its coastal waterways, bays and inlets in 1792. The island is surrounded by the Salish Sea to the east, the Juan de Fuca Straight to the south and the Pacific ocean to the west. It is a true ocean lover’s paradise. To the east of the Island lies the BC mainland, Washington State and to the south the Olympic Peninsula. At a length of over 450km and 100km in width, the island is the largest off the west coast of North America. Running along the length of the island, is the Vancouver Island Ranges, a towering mountain spine reaching heights of over 2km at its highest points. The tallest mountain on the island, the Golden Hinde measures 2,195m and is named after the ship of famed explorer Sir Francis Drake who spotted it in 1579.
As one of the wettest meetings of sea and land in the world, the island boasts some of the highest annual rainfall amounts anywhere north of the tropics. Winter months are legendary for weeks of overcast conditions as weather systems move inland of the ocean unleashing amazing amounts of rain.
What initially drew Michael to the island was its spectacular natural beauty, its peaceful coastal waterways, old growth temperate rain forests and snow capped mountain peaks. It is the same things that attract visitors to this day. Now you can bring the beauty of the island home.
