British Columbia offers a sea kayaking experience like none other – stunning vistas, lush temperate rain forests, long sandy beaches, incredible wildlife sightings, and vast wilderness areas. Simply put, British Columbia is one of the premiere destinations for sea kayaking in the world. Everything comes together here; an extensive maze of islands, rich First Nations culture, extraordinary wildlife encounters with orcas, humpback whales, bears, eagles and much, much more.

Kingfisher Wilderness Adventures has chosen Vancouver Island as our home, and as we enter our 19th year of operation, we hope you will join us on a kayaking trip of a lifetime.
