Instagram is by far my favourite social media platform. It breeds creativity and inspiration for what ever your niche is! In my case, I follow a lot of health and adventure instagrammers. Where I draw the most inspiration is from others who are deeply passionate about what I am also passionate about. I have compiled a list of my top 5 favourite adventure loving instagram accounts. Be sure to show these guys some love and give them a follow. You won't be disappointed!!


Snow of @swimming_in_moonlight seriously has her instagram theme locked down. Her theme is eerily beautiful, and really captures the mystery and depth that the Pacific Northwest waters have to offer. I could browse through her feed for ages. Luca and I feel a connection to Snow and her husband as they are literally living out exactly what we want our life to look like in 10 years. They own a large property on the San Juan Islands and live close to the ocean. More often than not they are in the water free diving. Snow has a deep appreciation for the coastal waters and it is apparent how connected she is with the underwater world just by looking at her pictures. She is also an incredible artist as well! Luca and I hope to one day have the privilege of playing in the water with this beautiful couple!

I could not do an adventure instagram post without mentioning my favourite account Rad Girls Collective!! I absolutely adore what these two Victoria girls have created. They repost rad girls doing rad stuff all over the world. If you are ever feeling in a slump just head on over to their feed and you will sure to be inspired to try something new and explore new places! If you want to be featured on their feed just hashtag #radgirlslife on your instagram posts.

I recently did a guest blog post on their website about the health benefits of nature. Be sure to check it out here!

If you love the amazing landscape of the Pacific Northwest and want to have nature porn on your instagram feed on the daily, than you must give @pacificnorthwestco a follow! Similar to Rad Girls Collective these guys repost the best of the northwest they can find out there on instagram. Their feed will inspire you to get out and explore our backyard! If you would like a chance to be featured on their feed (and gain a few new like minded followers) add the #pnwcollective to your photos in nature!

Jeremy Koreski is a local outdoor photographer who grew up in the special little west coast town of Tofino, BC. His photography ranges from surfing, to whales, to top-down perspective of forests. He really captures the essence of the west coast in all of his work. If I had the money I would fill my house with his photography, it is that incredible! After looking at his work, you will instantly check your calendar to see when you can book your next getaway to Tofino. Seriously.

Coastal Brandon is an insta celeb amongst the Wachtin crew, and for good reason! He is a spearfishing, free diving, stand up paddleboarding, surfing, skimming, adventuring super dad! He has some of the most incredible gopro shots of himself exploring the kelp forests in the Victoria area, and thus was the inspiration for Luca and I to finally take the plunge and purchase a GoPro! Him and his fiance (@itsgariele who is also the co-founder of @radgirlscollective) are the absolute cutest #coastalcouple (or now #coastalfamily with their newborn baby girl). Like Snow and her husband, we feel they are kindered spirits to Luca and I. Brandon shares his love for the ocean on instagram in the coolest of ways. Give him a follow, and you too will soon find yourself diving and exploring what our coastal waters have to offer.
