COVID-19 Update

– please note information on this page is subject to change – 

COVID-19

As you can imagine, the impact of the coronavirus worldwide has had us reviewing how to safely operate our trips.  Safety has always been our top priority, and while we are all keen to get out into the wild, we want to make sure that we can do so responsibly. We are following the Province of British Columbia guidelines for our 2020 season and look forward to getting adventurers out into the wilderness for a much needed escape.

Province of British Columbia Restart Plan – Phase 3

The BC Government has now announced we have moved into Phase 3 of the BC Restart Plan. Moving to phase 3, means recreational travel is now allowed throughout the province for residents of Canada.

Travel is different this year. The precautions you take at home should also be taken when you are away. In addition, in order to continue to limit the impact of the virus, in accordance with the provincial recommendations, Wildcoast trips will be available to social bubbles. Social Bubbles consist of a tightly restricted group of people who are regularly in close physical contact such as families or friends and who socialize exclusively with each other.

Please note, the restart plan remains fluid and is subject to change should there be adverse impacts of moving to this new phase.

Covid-19 Operating Protocols

Wildcoast has worked with several other kayaking companies in our region to discuss how to safely operate kayaking trips in light of the Covid-19 situation.  See what will be different by reviewing our Covid-19 Operating Protocols for the 2020 season. In addition to Wildcoast’s Waiver, all guests will be required to review and sign a Covid Statement of Understanding.

2020 Adventures

For 2020 we are planning to offer two of our expedition-style trips and day tours:

Due to the impact of Covid-19 we have to do things a little differently this year. Our trips are available to “Social Bubbles” of up to six people. Social Bubbles consist of a tightly restricted group of people who are regularly in close physical contact such as families or friends and who socialize exclusively with each other.

Departure dates and pricing are listed on each webpage at the bottom. If you are considering an adventure this summer and have questions, please contact us ([email protected]) for further details.

2021 Adventures

All dates for 2021 are available for booking. Please note that many of our International guests that originally planned to join an adventure in 2020 have moved their trips to 2021. If you are thinking about a 2021 adventure, we strongly recommend booking early to avoid disappointment. If the date you are hoping to come is indicating no availability, please contact us to help you plan your adventure.

INTERNATIONAL GUESTS

Wildcoast looks forward to welcoming International Guests, including those from the United States, back to our region in 2021. We miss you, and hope you have an awesome adventure closer to home this year.

Existing Bookings for Guests from Outside Canada – Trip Changes

If you had an existing booking, we can…

  • hold onto your existing booking and if necessary reschedule your adventure once travel and health advisories are lifted

  • push your fully transferable trip to 2021 or 2022 at the 2019 pricing (you can provide preferred dates at a later date if you wish), insulating it from next year’s rate increases
  • cancel your adventure and leave a credit on your account for a future bookings

  • provide you with a fully transferable gift certificate that never expires

Cancellations

If you feel you must cancel your 2020 booking completely, we ask that you…

  • check with your credit card provider, as some cards do have quarantine and travel restriction allowable refund policies. If you are able to get a refund via that method, it will allow credit card insurance companies to help us weather this storm

  • contact us at the email or phone number listed below

The fee for cancelling your existing 2020 booking regardless of the timing is three percent.

Our Ongoing Commitment

At Wildcoast Adventures, we will continue to follow the guidelines set out by BC Centre for Disease Control, WorksafeBC and the Tourism Industry Association of BC to protect our community, our guests, and our front line staff.
