“Absolutely breath taking!”
Reviewed 23 May 2014

We drove the sea to sky highway from downtown Vancouver to Pemberton on the 17th may. When booking our holiday we were unaware of the May long weekend bank holiday and we were shocked with how little traffic was on the highway. We just drove along at the speed like it enjoying the views and let all the local people speed past us it didn't bother us just going at our own pace and we never felt rushed.

The views were amazing the whole way up the highway. We stopped whenever we got the chance just for a look and the occasional photo. Having Shannon falls, brandy wine falls and nairne falls to stop at was incredible but ill review them separately.

If you have the chance this is a must do specially if you get good weather. We were gone all day on it and stopped at horseshoe bay for sunset.

“A great highway with sights all along the way”
Reviewed 18 May 2014

I have experienced VIC, Australia's Great Ocean Road and the Sea to Sky Highway ranks alongside it. Dotted with waterfalls, lookout points and amazing views all the way to Whistler, BC. If you drive, don't miss out of this amazing road to Whistler.

Most spectacular and awe-inspiring is Tantalus Lookout with its view of the Tantalus range.

We drive it all the time. When we take the time to actually think about it we realize how spectacular it must be for visitors to our beautiful coast and mountains. Recently improved its a safe and enjoyable drive.

“The road to whistler”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

This is one of those roads in which the road itself
is as important as the destination. Full of waterfalls (Shanon falls), ocean and mountain views it is full of viewing points where to stop to admire the beautiful scenery.
Several top restaurants are located through it, a mining museum and a fantastic gondola ride scheduled to open next month.
it connects beautiful West Vancouver with gorgeous Whistler.
A Must when visiting Vancouver. Jus paradise!

“Pacific Coachlines”
Reviewed 9 May 2014 via mobile

I used this service between Vancouver & Whistler and then back again. The coach had about ten people on it, nice commentary into Whistler also. Best thing was the free wifi and the beautiful scenery!
