Sea Kayaking Day Tours in the Gulf Islands
Vancouver Island, British Columbia
The perfect introduction to sea kayak touring set in the beautiful Gulf Islands of British Columbia. Come spend a day with us and get a taste of the sport everyone is raving about here on the West Coast.
From rolling meadows and Douglas fir forests to beaches boasting colourful intertidal marine life dispersed below intricate sandstone shorelines, the North Gulf Islands provide a diversity of sea kayak touring opportunities, just waiting to be explored.
Warm Pacific air keeps the climate on Vancouver Island moderate year round. The Gulf Islands lie tucked in the rain shadow of southeastern Vancouver Island, and annual precipitation is light compared to all other coastal areas. The Islands enjoy many more sunny days than mainland communities.
Your day will begin with instruction on basic sea kayak touring techniques and on-the-water safety considerations. Once on the water we’ll make sure you are comfortable and secure before setting off. We then will paddle off into relatively protected waters to practice your skills and explore among the DeCourcey Group Islands.
In the early afternoon we will visit a favourite beach of ours, where you will enjoy a delicious lunch. While lunch is being prepared you will have time to do a some onshore exploring and take in the panoramic scenery. Interesting stone formations, along with an impressive amount of plant and animal diversity make the Gulf Islands unique in their beauty and provide excellent natural history learning and photographic opportunities.
By the days end we believe you will feel that sea kayak touring in the beautiful North Gulf Islands, of British Columbia is the perfect introduction to the sport.
Pacific Northwest Expeditions supplies kayaks, safety equipment, a nutritious lunch, as well as sea kayak touring instruction.
