Captain Imports & Gifts » About The Zone


The White Rock Zone encompasses business listings and features things to do and see inside and outside the White Rock zone. We call this “Thinking Inside and Outside The Rock”!

About White Rock…

White Rock is a unique destination for tourists and shoppers alike, with many options for fun, entertainment, exercise, and amazing photo opportunities. The large selection of restaurants will satisfy any palate, and foodies will return wanting more.

If you’re a seeker of sunshine, White Rock is the place to be. Known as “The Hole in the Sky” by pilots flying overhead, White Rock gets the most sun of anywhere in the lower mainland. While other areas may be under cloud cover, the sun is likely to be smiling on The Rock!

About the rest of the White Rock Zone…

We understand that not everyone in the northwest can be at White Rock Beach at the same time. And we are encouraging people to visit other locations in The Zone, all within a two-hour drive or less of White Rock, encompassing the BC lower mainland, Vancouver Island, and northwest Washington State as far south as Seattle.

The staff of, Ric Wallace & Sheila T, are photographers who love to take pictures! We are also avid walkers and believe in the power of exercise in the White Rock Zone.

Virtual Edge Communications is located in White Rock, British Columbia serving the world in web design, digital photography, online advertising, PowerPoint, computer graphics, e-marketing, ebook publishing, and more.

In the summer of 2011, we were visiting White Rock Beach and never left! We moved our web design/marketing company to White Rock. We are always meeting new people to find out why they like White Rock and always inquire as to their favorite places to visit or things to do throughout The Zone.

Sometimes we even discover places on our own. For example: We created a video of our visit to Whatcom Falls Park in Bellingham WA, and showed it to a local lifetime BC resident who never knew it existed, even though this resident shops in Bellingham every couple of weeks.

With the proximity of the White Rock Zone to the Washington State border, we are also providing travel tips to help make your crossing easier.

We are asking anyone who lives in or visits White Rock to be goodwill ambassadors and let people know about White Rock Beach – the luckiest place on the west coast! You can let people know by word of mouth, telephone, social media, email, or even send them one of our really cool White Rock Beach postcards.

If you are coming to White Rock from elsewhere in The Zone, feel free to let us know of any Hot Spots for shopping or pleasure in your area.
