Witness the power of nature

Ucluelet | Boomer Jerritt

During the fall and winter months, powerful storms barrel across the Pacific Ocean, making the communities on the west coast of Vancouver Island the perfect place for storm watching.

Although that’s where the concept originated, you can hunker down facing the ocean anywhere along British Columbia’s vast coastlinefrom the Sunshine Coast to Haida Gwaiito enjoy nature’s temperamental show. The moody skies, lashing rain, and frenzied waves are both humbling and soul-stirring.

Stay toasty by the fire and watch the squall rage outside your window. Or, gain a greater respect for nature’s power by donning rain gear and venturing out into the elements.
