Offer dad an epic adventure of a lifetime with a Whistler Helicopter Excursion flying deep into the pristine and rugged landscape of the Coast Mountains. A friend of mine recently took advantage of this amazing Helicopter adventure and based on the breathtaking photos she took, I would highly recommend exploring this option!

Allow dad to experience the thrill of driving his very own private speed boat while navigating the majestic Vancouver coastline and surrounding Islands! Click here to learn more and to reserve your boat rental.

Rent kayaks at and explore Deep Cove

When the sun is shining and the water is calm, there is nothing quite like launching out from the Cove with kayaks and bonding while enjoying the beautiful scenery. I have rented kayaks and paddle boards from Deep Cove many times and would highly recommend exploring this option.

Golf & Lunch At Northlands Golf Course

What dad doesn’t love golfing? A day filled with their favourite sport and a great meal to finish it off would be an ideal way to spend the day for dad.

Taking place at Hastings Park, the Fair at the PNE is holding a special “Car-B-Q” featuring options for a mouth-watering BBQ meal, including award-winning ribs, macaroni and cheese, poutine, and Coca-Cola products. The drive-thru BBQ event will feature two Canadian concessionaires including Gator’s Barbeque and Prairie Smoke. In addition to these eats, this event will be hosting the first-ever indoor drive-through car show, where attendees will drive across the Pacific Coliseum floor where they will see “dozens of amazing classic, vintage, muscle and hot rods from across the region on display.”
