Escape to find the best sea kayak adventures in British Columbia.
Wildlife is in abundance as the Islands and the surrounding ocean are home to sea lions, seals, pacific white sided dolphins, otters, colorful birds and some of the largest starfish and clams in the world. Feel the excitement as playful seals, and seal pups approach your sea kayaks and if you are very lucky, you may even get to see transient Orcas or Humpback Whales who have also been spotted during this trip.
The Discovery Islands kayaking tour launches from breathtaking Rebecca Spit Provincial Park located in Quadra Island’s Heriot Bay. Each trip is customized to suit the group’s paddling ability and interests. Our guides ensure everyone has an excellent experience as each guide adds their own unique flair to the trip.
Explore by kayak the wildlife and wilderness
Delve into the myriad of channels, bays, coves, islets, points and passages of Quadra Island’s backyard wilderness. How about paddling through the Octopus Islands Marine Park to a secret bay, hiking through the ancient forest to a hidden lake, relaxing on a small sand beach, or watching (from the shore on this one…) the calm channels turn to whitewater rapids and standing waves as tides surge through narrow passages? Enjoy lunch at a quaint cabin: an eclectic museum of coastal souvenirs and art of visitors past. We strive to make it a trip of a lifetime. Routes vary, from enjoying a couple nights at one camp, to racking up the nautical miles and circumnavigating one of the islands.
Discover the rejuvenation of a Discovery Islands kayaking vacation
Each day wake up to the sounds of forest birds singing their morning tunes or the snort of a harbor seal, maybe even the cry of an eagle and the smell and sound of the ocean lapping the shore. After breakfast we’ll pack up, load the kayaks, and paddle the pristine waters to a new camp location.
Once your day is done, set up your tent under the ancient trees along the shore and begin to look back at the days adventures and wildlife sightings; the spectacular view towards the Coast or Vancouver Island Mountains will take your breath away.
To enhance your kayak trip, your guides will bestow their wealth of knowledge and experience about the area. Not only are the guides knowledgeable, but they are excellent cooks as well. Fresh meals prepared each day will leave your belly full and ready for all the adventures the day brings!
