Discover some of the most diverse marine wildlife in the world on this guided, full-day kayak adventure in British Columbia’s Gulf Islands. Explore this natural paradise with a seaplane flight from Vancouver. Then kayak along the waters of Saltspring Island in search of a wide variety of marine invertebrates, fish and sea mammals. Look for whales, harbor seals, river otters, sea lions, seagulls, eagles and more, including the rocky reefs and kelp beds of this protected bay area. Round-trip transportation from Vancouver plus a barbecue picnic lunch on the beach are included.

What to expect?

The Gulf Islands are a sea-kayaking paradise. Marine life here is among the world’s most diverse, and the rocky reefs, lush kelp beds, and protected bays are home to a myriad of marine invertebrates, fish, and sea mammals.

Seals, river otters, and sea lions are often seen. Sightings of whales, harbor seals and Dall’s porpoise are rare although they, too, inhabit these waters. Colonies of gulls and cormorants are scattered throughout the area, which also contains several breeding sites for bald eagles, oystercatchers, and pigeon guillemots.

Discover this rich ecosystem on a sea kayaking adventure along the shores and remote beaches. The guides will provide a hotel or residential pick up from anywhere in Vancouver.

Your adventure begins with a seaplane flight to Saltspring Island. From there, embark in a comfortable, 2-seat sea kayak. Qualified and knowledgeable guides will interpret the wildlife in the area and make sure the trip is safe and memorable.

A barbecue picnic lunch, made from only locally grown produce, is served on a remote beach.

End the adventure with a ferry and bus ride back to Vancouver.
