Map & Directions

Active Adventure

This is our most popular tour and your best opportunity to sea kayak in the realm of the killer whales, also known as orca. Our base camp is located in the heart of Johnstone Strait, off Vancouver Island, British Columbia directly across from the Robson Bight Ecological Reserve.

Your three exceptional guides will take care of you every step of the way. They prepare delicious hearty meals featuring local seafood and organic ingredients. Our guides have extensive training and experience in sharing with you the natural and cultural history of the area. All guides are certified in advanced wilderness first aid and of course have extensive kayaking experience and certifications.

Typical Day

On a typical day we paddle between 3-5 hours with plenty of breaks to get out and stretch our legs. Our campsite is considered to be one of the most beautiful on the British Columbia coast with great paddling opportunities and abundant wildlife. On one of our days we will walk to a viewpoint overlooking the strait where we will speak with researchers observing the whales as part of a long-term study. At the end of the day relax in our hot tub or in a hot shower while gazing out at the spectacular BC scenery.
