Helicopter Adventure on the West Coast

On October 4, 2022, I took a world-class helicopter sightseeing trip around Southern Vancouver Island. The helicopter tour was arranged by Tim Cormode, Founder of Power To Be and now-CEO of Power To Give. Taking in panoramic views of local Victoria landmarks, travelling over Sooke Potholes and along the Greater Victoria Water Supply area, we connected as a family, colleagues, and new friends.
