Luxury sea kayaking & multisports expeditions on the west coast of British Columbia. Spend 1-6 days in Desolation Sound, the Sunshine Coast, Howe Sound or the Gulf Islands. Fully inclusive family & novice friendly trips with pickup in Vancouver.
Our sea kayaking
expeditions all originate in Vancouver, BC, with hotel pickup and all transport in government licensed expedition vehicles. Groups may be from 4 to 8 participants with two qualified experienced guides. Activity level is easy (paddling with the wind) to moderate (paddling against the wind), and you do not need to be an olympian athlete by any means - just reasonably fit and healthy. No prior experience required - tours are novice friendly but still fun for accomplished paddlers.
A full and healthy breakfast prepared by our guides will get you started. We usually paddle for approximately 2 hours either side of a long leisurely lunch stop on a quiet beach, often on small islands. There are many opportunities for swimming in clear water bays, nature hikes, exploring the fascinating shoreline, relaxing in camp, photographing wildlife and learning new kayak skills if you wish. Finish up with a gourmet dinner and a glass of wine to toast another glorious west coast sunset. Camp fires where and when permitted.
Age range, type of group
Our trips attract adventurers in all shapes and sizes, from all over the world. Our youngest adventurers are often better off having a custom family departure, but if you are old / young enough to paddle then you will be most welcome on any trip! You do not need any prior kayaking
experience - we start with a lesson on day one.
Sleeping and meals
All of our trips are camping based, and we use the most beautiful backcountry campsites in all locations. We provide tents and inflatable matresses with pillows, and either bring your own sleeping bag or use one of ours. All delicious and nutritious meals are included and prepared by your guides in camp. Do not come on one of our trips if you are dieting, it would be a waste.
No pets - unless they can swim very fast for sustained periods.
