Blackfish Sound 4 Day Kayak Adventure

Blackfish Sound Adventure is a four-day sea kayak trip that explores the passages and beaches of the Southern portion of the Broughton Marine Park. These trips offer guests a blend of sheltered and open water sea kayaking with the reward of frequent whale sightings. Our sea kayak runs along the edge of waters where both Humpback whales and Orca whales travel and play. Each day, we venture through remote passages and clusters of islets rich in marine life and perfect for a day of whale watching and sea kayak adventures.

This trip highlights awesome whale encounters, scenic camping sites, maximum kayaking and a visit to a native site with visible remains of a past culture. Campsites are often visited by wildlife.  Whales are observed just off basecamp and along kayaking routes we use daily.

Our adventure travel trips start at a permanent basecamp. But it has all the design of a nomadic trip. These trips are suitable for familes or small groups of friends.
