Got Spring Fever?
Got Spring Fever?
Sunshine on your face, melodic bird songs, and vibrant blooms …this time of year brings revitalized energy and, for many of us, the travel itch! Join us at one of the True Key properties for an exceptional Spring vacation.
Longing for warm beach walks, serene vistas, and panoramic ocean views? Then…this is your place. Featuring 19 kms of sandy shoreline, there is no better place to relax than Parksville, and at Sunrise Ridge Waterfront Resort, the beach is your backyard. Your agenda will consist of nothing more than sitting back and contemplating life as you follow vanishing footsteps, digging for sassy crabs hiding amongst shallow rocks, searching for treasures that the sea leaves behind once the tide goes out and, of course, getting caught up on that ‘New York Best Seller’ reading list.
From water to land, one of Parksville’s other strengths is the level of greenery surrounding the area. Outdoor enthusiasts will find it difficult to run out of routes, and Mount Washington and Nymph Falls Nature Park offer a variety of hike-only, bike-only, and multi-use trails.

Those who love Sooke know that spring brings some of the West Coast’s finest fishing. Even if you’re not a fisherperson, watching the sun rise over the vast ocean will forever be etched in your mind. Stay at Sooke Harbour Resort & Marina and take advantage of the customized packages. Or try SookePoint Ocean Cottage Resort, presenting endless views of the pristine blue waters right outside your balcony. It’s, truly, Vancouver Island luxury at its finest.
If you would rather explore sea life, jump aboard a whale watching marine tour. These tours depart from Sooke Harbour Resort & Marina and explore the Strait of Juan de Fuca in search of Killer Whales, Porpoises, Gray and Humpback Whales as well as a handful of smaller marine life, such as seals, sea lions, and various bird species.

Although a buzzing destination in the summer, spring invites a more calming stay. Drink in Harrison’s lakeside beauty, scenic mountain ranges, and lush old-growth forest all within view from your balcony at Harrison Beach Hotel.
If you are interested in exploring the region’s hidden inlets, hop on a Shoreline Boat Tour where you’ll see waterfalls, rock formations, and awesome wildlife. On land, journey through Spirit Trail or any of the other hiking spots. Like Radium, end the day with a rejuvenating hot springs soak and fireside cuddle in your suite.
