“Hard to Keep Your Eyes on the Road !”
Reviewed 10 April 2014

As previous reviewers have said it's a great drive and easy on the eye. Since this trip we have now done the PCH from Whistler to San Fran and this section holds it's own ! There are many turn outs to catch another view . We came across a reflecting lake , Shannon Falls and numerous views of the Sound with the Mountains in the background and luckily all the traffic was headed back to Vancouver. Time was as usual tight and next time would stop at the Mine Museum but the Highway was a beaut drive on a nice day.

“Very Scenic”
Reviewed 9 April 2014

The Sea to Sky highway is a very scenic drive between Vancouver and Whistler. There are many stops along the way that will make for amazing photos. There are also numerous parks and lakes along the way. If you are interested Brandywine Falls is a great place to stop and see a 70 metre waterfall. Take a drive on a nice sunny day along this highway and you won't be disappointed and if you have some extra time stop along the way and check out the scenery.

“Beautiful Drive”
Reviewed 15 March 2014

Whether your heading all to the way to Whistler, or partway to Squamish, this is a beautiful drive. Its not often that you can drive so far right next to a fjord and see snow capped mountains on either side. One entertaining thing to visit on the highway about 45 minutes from Vancouver is Britannia Mine Museum (I'm sure its reviewed elsewhere) which I would rate as a "don't miss" attraction. There are also numerous parks of various kinds. And if you want to see black bears, turn left onto Callaghan Valley Road about 15km before you get to Whistler. Bears are often seen eating clover on the side of the road (stay in your car with windows closed for safety!). Continue on Callaghan Valley Road to see one the Olympic ski jump venues.

“The Best Thing About Whistler”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

The drive to Whistler is the best thing about it (in the summer). The views of Howe Sound are my favorite. The snow is still visible onthe mountains even in the summer. There are numerous stops along to way to walk to magnificient sights.

“Amazing Drive!”
Reviewed 26 February 2014 via mobile

First thing is don't be the driver, you'll miss a lot of the beautiful scenery! After making this drive it really makes me want to make the PCH drive from southern Cali to Canada. Several places for great photo-ops and really soak in the beauty.
