Just south of Chilliwack, and only an hour away from Vancouver, you will find Cultus Lake.

This small community is home to luscious golf courses, fun waterparks, camping grounds, and magnificent views. I had a chance to experience a day at Cultus Lake, courtesy of the new management of Cultus Lake Marina.

I found myself with my good friends Cassandra Anderton and Josh Rimer and a fun-packed itinerary that included riding boats and Seadoo’s around the lake. We were up to the task! The staff at Cultus Marina were very attentive and gave us a thorough safety briefing.  Our equipment was pristine: everything from the life jackets to the boats were in mint condition.

Boating has to be one of the most enjoyable activities in the world. To be in the middle of the lake’s crystal-clear waters with nothing but the wind in your hair and the sound of good friends laughter… I tell you, that’s the life!
