Pacific Northwest Expeditions Ltd.
Sea Kayaking Adventure Tours
Pacific Northwest Expeditions is a family operated company specializing in adventure sea kayaking trips on the coast of Vancouver Island, British Columbia.
Gillian Butler and Brian Collen, the founders and co-owners, began sea kayaking in the eighties back when it was still a relatively new activity on the west coast. After a few years of paddling separately we wound up in the same wilderness first aid course and we’ve been paddling and guiding together as a team ever since.
We‘ve learned a lot over the years, and we’ve seen some incredible sights but mostly our memories of the incredible people we’ve met from all over the world are what we cherish the most.
Neither our original desire to share our passion, nor our commitment to service have ever wavered. Our priority continues to be that each person, on every trip, is getting the most out of their experience. We take our responsibility for providing consistent high quality trips seriously, and dedicate ourselves to this goal year round.
Not only are our guides the most experienced and knowledgeable to be found, but we support them in every way possible in order that they can concentrate their energy on our guests.
Pleasure in the job puts perfection in the work.
