Salmon Run at Goldstream Park

Dates: October 1-31
Location: Goldstream Park

Goldstream has a world-class salmon spawning stream with thousands of Chum Salmon returning each year. Every autumn, million of Pacific salmon forge their way up the myriad streams of the Pacific northwest to spawn and die. In Goldstream, salmon appear about mid-October, and may be seen for about nine weeks, the dates varying from year to year. Of the five kinds of North American Pacific salmon it is the Chum salmon that is most abundant in this river, though you may also see some Coho and Chinook salmon, as well as the Steelhead and the Cutthroat trout.

Ghost Bus Tours are now in their 25th year. They are 2-hour tours in the comfort of a charter coach and cruise past some of Victoria's most haunted places. The routes are different each year, but always include 2 stops where we get off for on-site ghost hunting and story telling. The Victoria Golf Course, home of Doris Gravlin, one of the city's most famous ghosts, is always on the route. Reservations are required because the buses do sell out. Tickets are sold exclusively through TicketRocket (www.ticketrocket.co). Ghost Bus Tours are conducted by well-known ghost expert John Adams on behalf of the Old Cemeteries Society.
