Sea Kayaking Vancouver Island, Haida Gwaii, and the Great Bear Rainforest
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 14th year of operation, we hope you will join us on a kayaking trip of a lifetime.
Our sea kayaking tours offer something for everyone...
Our most popular tour. Imagine waking one morning to the sound of a humpback whale's blow as it swims past your ocean side tent. Later that same day watch in awe as a pod of killer whales, also known as orcas, swim past your kayak as a bald eagles swoops down to catch a salmon.
These four day kayaking tours run every Tuesday to Friday from mid-June to late September.
