The Alternative Climbing Gym challenges climbers of all abilities with a 30-foot vertical wall in a 1,500-square-foot facility. Expert instructors put students through the paces of ropeless bouldering, the teamwork of belaying, or top-roping, in which a wall scaler ascends with the help of a rope connected to both the climber and the summit. Each climbing variation at the gym enables bodies to build core strength, balance, flexibility, endurance, and stamina while slapping gravity across the face with a glove. All ages of aspiring mountaineers are welcome to use the facility and modern climbing gear, though belaying’s buddy support requires that sturdy helpers be at least 12 years old. Like the moods of adolescent rock faces, the routes change often.

Located where the Caren and Richardson mountain ranges slip into the Pacific Ocean, Pedals and Paddles sits on spectacular trailheads for hiking, camping, and kayaking. When paddling through the crystal-clear inlet waters on kayaks or standup paddleboards in guided or self-guided tours, clients can gaze at the ocean floor to commune with seafaring creatures such as starfish, sea cucumbers, and—if they're lucky—dolphins and orcas. Explorers can also camp on the beaches at Piper Point, Tuwanek Beach, or Oyster Beach, where they can sleep in between swimmable waters and the towering pines of the mountains.

Licensed instructor Anna Dodds leads sweat-inducing dance workouts in her energetic Zumba classes, which get hearts of all fitness levels racing in time with sultry Latin rhythms.

Too long of a drive. No car. A bunch of water is in the way. There are many situations in which regional flights are the most practical way to travel. To that end, Orca Airways' fleet of 18 small aircraft regularly travel between five airports along the Pacific Rim that serve Vancouver, Victoria, Parksville, Abbotsford, Tofino, Ucluelet, and Qualicum Beach. With large, cushy seats, their Piper Navajo Chieftains and Beechcraft King Airs zoom travellers through the air in relaxing comfort, like when Louis XIV was catapulted from Marseille to Paris in his throne. The flights are ideal for trips to business meetings or weekend vacations. Additionally, Orca charters its aircraft for travel throughout Canada and the United States.

At Duncan Lanes, 20 well-oiled lanes hasten balls toward clusters of 5 or 10 pins. On Friday and Saturday evenings, Rock & Glow sessions cast incandescent hues upon the lanes, balls, and pins, simulating the rainbow eclipse that scientists have been anticipating for eons. The centre also hosts open-bowling hours throughout the week, along with leagues for adults, children, and seniors. Its on-site Lane 21 Lounge provides visitors with refreshments and a relaxing environment to help them forget about the stresses of losing balls in the alley's challenging water hazards. To keep orbs in top shape, the pro shop staff is adept at ball fitting, drilling, plugging, and resurfacing.
