Horne Lake Caves Regional Park
Horne Lake Caves Provincial Park is located along the Qualicum River, north of Qualicum Beach on central Vancouver Island. The 158-hectare park protects seven caves in the cave system, considered to be one of the best in Canada. The caves are largely undeveloped, and in keeping with the natural theme, none of the caves have lighting, and the floors are rocky and uneven. The caves are cool, even during summer, so bring warm clothing and good footwear. Visitors wanting to explore on their own should have at least two sources of light, and helmets are highly recommended. These supplies are available to rent from the tour operator. The routes within the caves are not marked, and contain steep slopes, slippery sections, and exposed drops. Self-explorers should exercise extreme caution while traveling in the caves.

Little Huson Caves Regional Park
Little Huson Cave Park, nestled in the Nimpkish Valley near Port McNeill, offers visitors a chance to view the fascinating Quatsino System - a network of caves that honeycomb Vancouver Island between here and the Strathcona Provincial Park/Gold River region. If you've never experienced the sensation of spending time underground, it's like mountaineering in the dark with the sight of a smooth, white world revealed in the beam of your headlamp. Cave climates are damp and clammy, so dress accordingly. Little Huson's caves are a good place to begin caving or even to begin considering the possibility. A short trail leads from the parking lot to a view of several caves through which the Atluck River bores.
