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 17th year of operation, we hope you will join us on a kayaking trip of a lifetime.
Our sea kayak tours of northern Vancouver Island, Haida Gwaii, and the Great Bear Rainforest offer something for everyone.
Orca Waters Base Camp Kayak Tours
Seeing a humpback whale lunging through a school of bait fish, a grizzly bear chasing a salmon through a shallow river, or a pod of killer whales surfacing in unison are often considered once in a lifetime experiences and all three are possible on the “Whales and Grizzly Bears.
Searching under rocks for crabs, watching humpback whales feed on a school of small fish, or being surprised as a harbour seal pops up right next to their kayak are all memories children cherish for a lifetime. This kayak tour is designed for families with children aged six to fourteen.
Gwaii Haanas National Park Kayak Tours
