Its summer time and you might be finding ways to enjoy your vacation. So let’s catch up Canada and find out what we can do there:

British Columbia

British Columbia:
1. Tour an airborne firefighter: Coulson Flying Tankers was initially built as bombers for long-range patrols and missions. Now 60,000 pounds of foam are dropped by it on raging forest fires. They reside at Sproat Lake with wingspans of 200 feet in central Vancouver Island. If crews are not extinguishing flames then free tours are available.

2. Paddle into the setting sun: From Gabriola Island, a sunset kayaking tour indeed gives a wonderful experience. Per person just $45 is charged.

3. Zip it: Old-growth forest and whitewater are amazing on a series of zip lines; some are about 2,200 feet long. For adults, it is $98 to $119.

4. Feed the sea lions: It is worth taking a tour behind the Vancouver Aquarium. You can learn all about the sea otters and sea lions from the staff and can get close to the animals while working with the trainers. You want to get over there then you must pay from $25 to $35.

5. Saddle up for cowgirl boot camp: In the Chilcotin Mountains, at Elkin Creek Guest Ranch, you will be trained in the roping, riding and rustling up over the fire. It is $825 per person.

6. Seek a sea serpent: In Okanagan in the B.C. interior, a snake-like creature called Ogopogo, can be seen in the plenty of number. This snake-like creature is presumably from 6 to 20 meters long.

7. Yacht Chartering- The North Channel spills into Georgian Bay and there are literally hundreds of beautiful anchorages to discover. The spectacular Benjamin Island is a must for yacht chartering. The yacht services available aren’t as credible as charteryachtdubai.com that makes an ultimate vacation in Dubai if you love fine culture, finer boats and beautiful azure waterways.
