Stopped here on our tour - they split us into two groups which was nice. A very nice place to visit. Our young tour guy was wonderful. Answered all questions. Very pretty to see. Don't miss it.

If you are in the area, the Salmon Interpretation Center is worth a short visit. It is educational, and the views of the Torrent River and its cascades are impressive.. The displays in the Center's "museum" are well worth spending a little time perusing.

There is a rushing river, a waterfall and jumping salmon. Also, inside the interpretation centre you can see Atlantic salmon up close in the fish ladder. If you have time you can view a short introductory film and then read the displays in the centre....More

So cool to watch all the salmon in their natural environment swimming up stream. Lots of nice scenery all around with Torrent River being a part of the attraction.
