North Island Fins & Skins – 3 nights / 2 rounds & fishing
The North Island Fins & Skins package combines golf with a beautiful stay and a four-hour fishing charter. Your hotel is situated along the shores of Discovery Passage. The Painter’s Lodge is a full-facility resort in Campbell River offering premier accommodation, including deluxe guestrooms with ocean or gardens views, loft-style units for groups, deluxe suites, and cabins. Painter’s Lodge is world-famous for salmon fishing and eco-adventures. Amenities include tennis courts, a swimming pool, and a children’s activity centre. Enjoy fine West Coast and Continental cuisine in the Painter’s Lodge dining room or pub-style food and local brews in the relaxed atmosphere of the Tyee Pub.
What about the fishing you may ask? Well, drop your line in Campbell River, “The Salmon Capital of the World” and partake in one of the world’s most impressive salmon migrations. Enjoy a 4 hour fishing charter with Painter’s Lodge. Set off from the resort in a 17-foot Boston Whaler and fish the waters of Discovery Passage with an experienced guide who shares your passion and excitement for fishing. The guides are BC salmon fishing experts with a vast knowledge of the region and a deep respect for the sport. Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced angler, your guide can set the hooks, offer new tips and techniques, and help you reel in the catch you’ve been waiting for.
Fantastic golf await you: Designed by Graham Cooke, the Crown Isle Golf Resort is a 7,024 yard championship course that will call on every shot in your bag to negotiate the sixty-eight bunkers and nine water hazards that defend this golfing gem. Don’t worry if you are not a Tiger Woods or an Annika Sorenstam though, Crown Isle offers four sets of tees to enable golfers of all levels to enjoy a round on this fantastic layout. Wide fairways and generous, manicured greens mean that shooting low scores is possible but only if you are firing on all cylinders.
Without a doubt, Storey Creek is the best kept golf secret on Vancouver Island. Nestled amongst dense forest and alongside pristine marshland, Storey Creek is a shining example of what all golf courses should be: a symphony of superb holes and spectacular scenery. At Storey Creek it is not uncommon to share the fairways with families of deer or see groups of bald eagles flying overhead. If you can though you will have to try and block that out, because Storey Creek is a fantastic test of golf!
