Now that we are in Phase 3 our advertising, media relations and visitor servicing activities will be rolled out. A series of digital, Instagram, Facebook, Trip Advisor and Expedia advertising will run throughout British Columbia. Most of the ad creative is included in this presentation deck so please have a look. We will also be hosting travel journalists over the next few weeks and will continue to utilize our owned channels (website, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter) to communicate with our audiences and entice people to return.
We continue to keep information on ‘What’s Open’ current on our website. Please contact Jody Kirk with your updates.
Maquinna Marine Provinicial Park/Hot Springs Cove is closed to tour operators and personal watercraft. Please advise guests with boats that they cannot use the harbour, docks, campsites or Hot Springs at this time.
