A short one hour helicopter ride from Vancouver Airport and I was dropping into the wilderness of Sonora Island (off the coast of British Columbia, near Campbell River) and the luxury of Sonora Resort. The resort itself was impressive, but what I was more surprised at were all the things to see and do during my stay. Like a huge playground for the wildlife - eagles, seals, killer whales, dolphins and salmon to name a few! Salmon fishing is the reason most people stop by this remote part of BC and I caught the fish to prove it. 28.5 pounds to be exact (see attached photo!).
Be sure to stay at least 3 nights, 4 if you can. It’s definitely worth it!
