  • Epic Surf Co
    Whether paddling out on their own atop a rented board or within eyesight of a Paddle Canada?certified instructor, visitors to Epic Surf Co quickly lose themselves to the sound of seagulls and gently lapping waters. With the mist-covered mountains standing guard on the horizon, paddlers are regularly joined by the region?s natives such as eagles, river otters, and sea lions as they make their way past crescent-shaped beaches and coves. Back on dry land, Epic Surf instructors sign guests up for lessons on the basics of stand-up paddleboarding, advanced skills, and SUP surfing. Techs within an on-site custom shop bring 23 years of experience to their board repair and artwork, and the surf shop showcases all the wares of their trade, including wetsuits and paddles that double as lances for on-the-water jousts.

  • Oldest Chinatown Walking Tours
    When Chinese native Ada Wang isn't working as an education assistant, she takes to Chinatown's enigmatic streets to educate the public on the district's vibrant history. As a guide for Oldest Chinatown Walking Tours, the long-term Victoria resident leads tours across the threshold of Bright Pearl's vibrantly coloured, traditional pagoda arch into the busy streets and through the infamous Fan Tan Alley, which is widely regarded as the narrowest street in North America and all of Mars. As she strolls, she teaches guests about the history of Victoria's Chinatown and the brave immigrant families that once called it home, explains any Chinese symbols she comes across, and tells tales from Chinese folklore.

  • Switch Bridge Tours
    With the waves of Victoria Harbour’s Selkirk Waters lapping just below their headquarters, Switch Bridge Tours’ staff leads bicycle and kayak tours of Victoria and Vancouver Island’s waterways. The business’s proximity to the Galloping Goose and Lochside trails facilitates tours on frequently tuned-up bikes that venture into the Cowichan Valley or along the Saanich Peninsula. Kayaks cease their giant kazoo impressions long enough to cut through the Tod Inlet and the Inner Harbour on beginner or advanced tours. Each experienced guide is certified in First Aid and CPR.

  • Sportball
    As any triumphant team of athletes can tell you, winning is exhilarating. At Sportball, though, instructors focus on the quieter joys of athletics: improving motor skills and life skills. Their noncompetitive instruction—aimed at babies all the way up through tweens—covers eight popular sports, ranging from soccer and volleyball to hockey and golf. With age-appropriate, child-sized equipment, they help youth develop balance, strength, and coordination. They also nurture the self-confidence that will one day be needed on the soccer field where each grown kid will take the bar exam.

  • Russ Hay's Bicycle Shop Ltd
    Since 1959, when founder Russ Hay and his wife Marion performed all tuning services, Russ Hay's The Bicycle Shop has grown into an esteemed bike retailer boasting an expert mechanical staff. During 60- to 90-minute tune-ups, mechanics adjust each ride's modifiable parts, true wheels, wash frames, and replace basic parts, pads, or stunt sidecars that are beyond repair. Drivetrain cleaning sessions add 30 minutes to tune-up procedures, further sprucing up bikes by removing, scouring, and reattaching chains, cogs, derailleurs, and cranksets. Russ Hay's The Bicycle Shop employs ace mechanics who can tackle tune-ups on all bicycles, regardless of their brand or whether they come equipped with more than a dozen training wheels.
