Fishing for salmon or trout are the most popular tourist activities, but hiking in the lush forests, kayaking, whale-watching, and diving in the Discovery Islands are also fun for visitors.
I visited Campbell River at the end of a wonderful Alaska cruise on the Regent Seven Seas Mariner. Because of the spectacular island scenery surrounding Campbell River, I chose a floatplane flightseeing shore excursion with a special purpose--to deliver the mail to some of the remote islands of coastal British Columbia. The afternoon flight was beautiful, and it was fun talking to some of the local residents, including the postmistress of one of Canada's floating post offices. Join me on a mail plane ride from Campbell River.
