The value of bees pollinating fruits vegetables and legumes is 10 times the value of honey produced (over $1 billion in Canada). A colony of honey bees in summer has 50-60,000 bees. A honey bee flies up to 24 km /hr or 15 mph and its wings beat 200 times per second or 12,000 beats / minute.
This photo was taken while sea kayaking toward the Burman River. One of the advantages of Sea Kayaking is being quiet and able to see nature at its best. On this particular day seals were fishing for Salmon that were swimming up the near by rivers.
We have a plethora of boats to choose from including sea kayaks, white water boats, canoes and voyageurs canoes for you. In this photo you can see kids and their grandparents enjoying a game of kayaking soccer on one of three swim bays at SPL.

It sits just outside of Strathcona Provincial Park on Upper Campbell Lake and is ideally situated for exploring this exciting and little known area of Vancouver Island.
