Overview of our 5-day expedition

On this 5-day kayak trip, you’ll discover two of British Columbia’s most beautiful natural environments: Johnstone Strait and Blackfish Sound. If we are blessed with good weather, we’ll stay at several campsites and enjoy relaxing in incredibly remote locations—so you can trade the hustle and bustle of the city for the peaceful sounds of BC’s raw wilderness.

Weynton Passage and Blackney Passage, two areas we will paddle in, boast an abundance of wildlife in the area due to the high current speed—why is that, you ask? You’ll just have to come on the tour to find out. Please note that no experience is required for this tour, but it can be dangerous for those without experienced guides like ours. Our guides will make sure that you have a great time and stay safe while doing so.
