What to bring

For head to toe comfort at camp or on the water

It can be sunny and warm most days, but it’s best to prepare for cooler days and cooler evenings. The temperature is on avererage 10 degrees cooler at our camp than in Vancouver. Temperatures range from between 13 and 24 degrees celsius at any time of the summer. It is not uncommon to to have wet weather or fog when other regions are dry. So it is best to take too much clothing than not enough. We will also be getting in and out of boats throughout the each day so appropriate foot wear is a must!


If you wish to fish, please have a printed hardcopy of your B.C. tidal water fishing license with you. It must be with you while you are actively fishing. Be sure to get the additional salmon tag Your license can be puchased here
