EXPEDITION KAYAKING

 

Our expedition kayak tours range from five to fifteen days and allow kayakers to explore a larger area versus our base camp tours. These tours are offered in  a number of different locations; northern Vancouver Island, Haida Gwaii, and the Great Bear Rainforest.

During our expedition style tour, we kayak between different wilderness campsites: some involve camping in the forest, others on pebble beaches or sandy beaches, and on some trips possibly tent platforms on rocky points, The exact locations used on each trip depend upon a number of factors like group size, wildlife viewing opportunities, and weather.

We provide high quality three-season tents. For couples we provide three-person tents and for solo travellers a slightly smaller tent, all with Therm-a-rest sleeping pads and warm mummy-style sleeping bags with liners to ensure a good night’s sleep. A library of natural history books is on every trip. On the water we use stable single and double fibreglass kayaks and lightweight carbon/vinyl paddles. Waterproof kayaking jackets, personal floatation devices, and neoprene kayaking mitts are provided to keep you warm and dry while kayaking.
