Sea kayak West Coast BC Canada with Orcas

Vancouver Island lies off the west coast of BC Canada. Much like the west coast of Scotland there are numberous smaller islands and loads of places to explore by sea kayak. Due to the variety of great sea kayaking we offer several different trips around the coast of Vancouver Island. We paddle in areas where we are likely to see Orcas. We camp on small islands and one camp over looks the only Orca reserve in North America. It is a great place to spot these amazing creatures and even given their other name 'Killer Whales' they are actually quite safe to kayak with.

We have trips for people who have enjoyed sea kayaking before or even beginners as we can choose places where the water is actually very sheltered and we have a range of kayaks including good ones for beginners.

We can spend time exploring the smaller islands of Vancouver Island, with tide flows to assist us and stunning wild camping spots.

We have watched Bald Eagles, sitting in the trees near to camp and with periods of beautiful sunny weather this is a really relaxing place to paddle. The waters where we paddle on the first two courses are sheltered by Vancouver Island, for private groups of more experienced paddlers we can also go to the more exposed areas of Vancouver Island and can find more challenging paddling with longer days on the water. For those with the paddling experience to do so safely, for some real excitement we can even paddle into some amazing tide races.

This is a great trip for mixed groups of paddlers and beginners as we can find great trips for all.

 All our scheduled trips are fully catered and include provision of all the camping kit you need. If you have a group of experienced paddlers and want to organise your own itinerary with our outfiitting contacts then just ask for a tailor made qoutation.

Wild camping in BC using the sea kayaks to carry all you kit, is an amazing adventurous way to travel. For the more relaxed trips we even have a remote camping site that we have already set up for the season, with exclusive use and far away from busier areas because we use a water taxi to access the area at the start or end of the trip.

You can join the trips on Vancouver island by hiring a car in Vancouver and driving over, well worth the drive and ferry journey as all part of the experience, or we can arrange a pick up for larger groups.
