“Lovely building design”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

This award winning Iredale designed building right beside the main road in Squamish, with easy access and egress, acts as a true community hub. Not only a gorgeous spot for the Tourism Information Bureau, but a good little coffee shop, some meeting room space and cute little theatre and gift shop.

The layout is a bit wasteful of space, and the cost was way to high, but this is now a Squamish landmark and icon.

“Slightly misleading name”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

I don't know that I would ever have stopped here in search for tourism information, going just by the name. I'm not sure what prompted this misleading name.

Going to Squamish on a whim, we needed some information that wasn't in any of the brochures stacked in our hotel's racks -- don't need any outfitters to take a walk, but wanted to stay away from the 'holiday herds.' Thankfully we got friendly and helpful advise, with maps and printouts.

As a nice surprise, the gift shop had quite a few items made in Squamish/BC/Canada that seemed not overpriced.

There was a "Sing the Canadian Anthem for a free coffee"-promotion in the café, and judging by the mood of the girl behind the counter, too many people had taken advantage of that. Didn't try the coffee, but the place looked nice and inviting, as did all of the tourism info.

“Great views and atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

A very relaxing place to be, with a good selection for teas (sorry, don’t drink coffee) and snacks. Nice store for souvenirs, even for a local like me.

“Love the Squamish Adventure Centre”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

The Squamish Adventure Centre takes care of so many things in one fabulous stop! The adventure agents and helpful and knowledgeable about the area, the gift shop has some very unique local souvenirs that you can't find anywhere else, the coffee shop is amazing and a play area for the kids to unwind in while you relax with a coffee or tea and a snack. The building itself is great too with floor to ceiling windows to take in the surrounding mountains. A must-stop on your trip to Sea to Sky Country!

“Coffee and views!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

You'll find the best espresso in the Sea-to-Sky corridor here (even better than Galileo Britannia?...Let the debate begin). The massive views towards the Squamish Chief are a great coffee break backdrop. Basic information on the area's outdoor rec opportunities can be found here but a better presentation of tourism opportunities could be designed.
