Kayaking Day Tours in the Gulf Islands, BC

Our kayaking adventures are suitable for any experience level — including the "never-been-in-a-kayak-before" level — and are fun for the whole family. Our boats are stable, comfortable and a smooth ride.

We are committed to small group tours! Our guide to client ratio is 1:5, a standard set by the Sea Kayak Guides Alliance of BC. We also offer three levels of kayak instruction as well as equipment rentals.


Ganges Harbour Kayaking Tour

Our 2-3 hour Ganges Harbour Kayak Tours are a great intro to kayaking and our Gulf Islands environment. The safe and calm waters of Ganges Harbour ensure an easy paddle, enabling you to explore the intertidal zone and get up close and personal with a Sunflower Star, discover the wonder of First Nations middens, experience the meditative, yet energizing experience that is Sea Kayaking, and have a whole lot of family fun on the water.

Marine Park Kayaking Tour

Our 4-6 hour Marine Park Kayak Tours allow you to get away from it all and explore the natural wonders of the Gulf Islands. We launch our kayaks from a quiet spot on Salt Spring Island that allows us easier access to the parks and protection from the winds. 5 and 6-hour tours may include an interpretive walk at our destination, adding immensely to the overall tour experience. Wildlife sightings are common on our Marine Park Tours — look out for eagles and their nests, river otters, harbour seals, sea lions, great blue herons, mink, porpoise, and a whole host of underwater life.
