Hunting for Treasure on the Sunshine Coast
at Rockwater Secret Cove Resort

News Release January 2009

HALFMOON BAY, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA: From high-tech to high-seas and miles of forest in between, Rockwater Secret Cove Resort has innovated its popular adventures program introducing Trails & Sails. New for 2009, Rockwater takes you on a GPS-powered treasure hunt, naturalist-facilitated scavenger hunt and formal sailing lesson. Adventurous mainstays, guided eco-hikes and mountain biking along the stunning Sunshine Coast round out the Trails & Sails outdoors activities.

Rockwater’s knowledgeable and athletic guides offer a fresh sheet of outdoors activities suitable for groups of all sizes. Tech-heads take note: the latest in gaming, Rockwater ventures outdoors on a satellite-powered treasure hunt. Search for prize boxes stashed at set coordinates along local trails with a hand-held GPS. From the boardroom to the backwoods, Trails & Sails activities are ideal office retreats, great for family reunions or honeymooning couples. Non-techies will enjoy guided nature walks and mountain-biking through the Coast’s local trails. Equipment rentals are also onsite to explore on your own.

Jump aboard and take the helm of the 47-foot Caledonia II Jeanneau sloop as the expert skipper navigates you through hour-long sailing lessons. Practice your perfect rig, and trim the sails along the protected waters of the Malaspina Straight. If your compass points more towards the decadent than deep-sea, let your sea legs laze as your skipper and crew set sail to Smuggler’s Cove, Buccaneer Bay, Thormanby and Jedediah Island. Rockwater’s culinary team will provide gourmet meals of fresh organic entrees and B.C. VQA wines on half- or full-day charters. Explore the essence of the Coast, rugged wilderness and pristine waters as Trails & Sails makes headway at Rockwater Secret Cove Resort.
