Campbell River

Snorkel with Salmon

On Vancouver Island, you can hop in a river with masks and snorkels, point your arms downriver, float with the current and immerse yourself into the little-seen world of salmon. Surrounded by hundreds of thousands of pinks, cohos, chum, sock-eye and chinook, you’ll never look at sashimi the same way again.

Note from Robin : It’s super difficult getting a clear photo of the salmon underwater. Unless you’ve got a pro-underwater camera kit, just relax and enjoy the experience.
