Explore the Hidden Gem of Vancouver Island, now open year-round. Winner of BC’s Remarkable Experience Award and ranked #1. Explore this park in 3D – either hiking the beautiful rainforest Fossil Trail or venturing underground. Start your journey with a short discovery walk through the forest to reach the cave entrance. Here you’ll begin a fascinating subterranean experience. As you step away from the emerald forest and deeper into the cave, a new world of crystal formations, marbled surfaces and ancient fossils reveals itself. Test your personal limits using ramps, ladders and slides to navigate passages through a variety of caves. Feel the cool air. Listen to the sound of your guide’s voice, the steady drip of seeping surface water or the rumbling of an unexpected waterfall. Turn off your headlamp to heighten your senses and absorb the power of complete darkness. Spelunking feeds every appetite, from mild to wild. It’s an intense, wild and transformative adventure!

Named after the Eagles that soar overhead, Eaglecrest Golf Club is located in the beautiful Oceanside area of Vancouver Island, British Columbia. Established in 1971, Eaglecrest is one of the oldest golf courses in the area. This 18 hole championship golf course offers lush fairways and towering evergreen trees. The layout deftly combines a variety of different elements to create a uniquely challenging course. The first three holes are traditional links-style holes, while the next nine are tighter, winding through dense groves of firs and cedars. The final six holes are the golf courses most formidable, especially the 14th and 17th. The par-5 14th hole features lakes on either side as well as a treacherous pot bunker guarding the large green. Eaglecrest Golf Club`s 17th is also tricky. With a narrow landing area, massive greenside bunkers, and a slippery, four tiered, narrow green, the 17th at Eaglecrest will test all areas of your game. Eaglecrest presents many challenging tests, even for the most seasoned golfer.
