Giant Trees

As youdrove through Cathedral Grove on your way to the West Coast of Vancouver island the tall tree there is Douglas Fir, at 100 m. (330') tall it is not recognized as the tallest tree on the planet.  However, some unusually tall specimens at just over 120 m. (400') were the tallest trees ever recorded; try and imagine a single tree as tall as a 40 story building. The tall tree on the West Coast is Sitka Spruce, at 90 m. (300) or 30 stories high.  

The wide trees at both Cathedral Grove and here on the West side of Vancouver Island are the giant Western Red Cedar.

Catherine's Floating Garden

Last Sunday a bunch of friends (including some from Jamie's Whaling Station where I work and book from) took an evening cruise to Catherine's Floating Garden (aka. Freedom Cove).  Everybody was blown-away by what they saw and experienced, the place is 'out of this world'.  Catherine and Wayne truly loved the company and the feeling was mutual.  The sunset on the way back to Tofino was glorious, the perfect ending to a great day. 
 
So now we have staff at Jamie's Booking Office with personal experience of the Gardens to help them with any questions you may have.
