Kayaking Adventures in the Gulf Islands
Our kayaking adventures are suitable for any experience level – including the never-been-in-a-kayak-before level – and are fun for the whole family. Our boats are stable, comfortable, and a smooth ride. We are committed to small group tours. Our guide to client ratio is 1:5, a standard set by the Sea Kayak Guides Alliance of BC. We also offer different levels of kayak lessons, from beginner to advanced, and equipment rentals.
Safety & Equipment
Our guides are certified in Wilderness First Aid, have been trained by the Sea
Kayak Guides Alliance of BC, and are well-learned nature geeks who know their stuff.
All tours prices include use of life jackets, spray skirts (they keep the water
out), and paddles. Our guides carry a wide array of safety equipment, including
first aid kits, cell phones, VHF radios, spare clothes, and more. Your safety is
our highest priority.
Children & Families
Our Seaward Passat G3 kayaks fit two and a half people! They are very stable boats, equipped with a middle hatch seat designed to carry your 4-9 year old special someone, who then has the important job of being "the look out" for BC wildlife. Your child will have an incredible time, making memories, exploring the natural world with you!
