Our son has found a job in an exchange program and will start working in Courtenay in May. So we planed to accompany him there and spend 10 days to 2 weeks on Vancouver Island. We plan to arrive in Comox airport from Switzerland and take a rental car from the airport. Our main interests are: having an impression of the place (first time in Canada), if possible bear and whale watching and - very important - fishing. We are looking for a good place to catch our first salmon ever and hope April is not too early. All recommendations are welcome. Thank you.
