Tourist Information Centre

Our Tourist Information Centre offers free visitor information for most areas on Vancouver Island as well as for many areas on the BC mainland.


Al’s Room

Al’s Room is a glassed-in, all-weather room where you can sit in comfort and enjoy the views, rain or shine! On many weekends during the summer, you’ll find a local artisan on hand, displaying their work and giving everyone a chance to meet and talk with them.
