A Vancouver Summer with Team AlgaeCal

With the Vancouver weather being beautiful, sunny and hot the past couple of weeks, the AlgaeCal team has been taking advantage of it and doing some cool summer activities.

dean and adamOur CEO Dean Neuls and Director of Marketing, Adam Killam are off for another fishing trip, this time up the coast of Vancouver Island! They will be sleeping on the boat for 3 nights and hoping that neither of them will get sea sick! But just in case, Dean packed some sea-sickness remedies.


vanessaVanessa, our SEO guru, is planning to surf, hike, swim, kayak….pretty much everything you can think of! She’s our adventurous one of the group always up for new and fun things. And this summer it seems like she’s into trying anything to do with water! Not a bad plan considering the weather has been perfect for these kind of activities.


kyleKyle is our movie aficionado! He has recently seen 22 Jump Street, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and plans to re-watch Young and Dangerous from 1997 this weekend. You ask him if he’s seen a movie, chances are he has! And he will give you a full synopsis of it, too. He’s our Roger Ebert of the AlgaeCal office.


monicaAnd I (Monica) want to try out the Pitch and Putt in Stanley Park this weekend. Apparently it has 18 holes ranging from 40 to 100 yards and is a hidden gem in the park. I grew up on a golf course and had my first hole-in-one at age 9 so I know my way around a golf course. It’s hard to go golfing when you live in downtown Vancouver, but this Pitch and Putt will be the perfect solution!
