Vancouver & area

Nestled between the mountains and the ocean, Vancouver is bursting with activities and things to do for those who want to enjoy life to its fullest and check a few items of their bucket list. Scenic flights, whale watching, white water rafting and unique walking tours are just the beginning of the list of Vancouver activities Breakaway Experiences offers…your only limit is your imagination.

With family and friends visiting are you wondering what to do in Vancouver to make their trip memorable?  How about an unforgettable whale watching cruise, a private flight over Whistler’s backcountry or an intriguing walking tour that delves into Vancouver mysterious past?

If you want to surprise your husband or boyfriend this year with a unique birthday gift idea you can give them a paintball experience like no other, a white water rafting trip on the Thompson or Chilliwack Rivers or an exciting sea doo tour to Bowen Island and back  ( complete with a stop at a pub on Bowen Island)

Why buy  another place setting or crock pot for their wedding or anniversary gift when you can give them an experience they will remember and talk about for a very long time: A private sailing cruise from English Bay to Granville Island, a unique dining experience for 2 at The Dark Table restaurant or maybe a tour of Vancouver distilleries with Off The Eaten Track.
