Custom One,Two or Three Day Sea Kayak Trips 

On out Custom Sea Kayak Trips expect to see a number of species of marine wildlife. It is never that you will not see wildlfe but rather how much you will see on one, two or three days. The area profiles humpback, minke and orca whales, steller sea lions, white-sided dolphins, dall porpoise, black bear and eagles. 

We do pickups at three locations to allow folks the freedom of choosing their accommodations in Telegraph Cove, Alert Bay or Port McNeill. The timing of our departure allow the early morning to sort itself out and for us to catch the temps on the way up towards the afternoon. Often we see wildlife within the first 15 minutes of our transit to deeper waters. Deeper waters give us opportunities to observe sea lions and humpback whales. Certainly it is a regular occurence to see shoreline critters during our transit along Johnstone Strait.  Black Bears  We transit Blackfish Sound and the entrance of Blackney Passage during the morning hours and progress into the rich waters of Johnstone Strait in the afternoon. Gradually we visit the beaches of Robson Bight and Boat Bay Conservancy.

As we traverse the waters of North Vancouver Island we are scanning and listening  for the passage of  Orcas, White-Sided Dolphins or Humpback Whales.  Maximum time is spent on the water either in sea kayaks or in the boat. Our trips also give you the opportunity to explore the beaches, trails and rugged shoreline of this lush marine environment.

During the day we transfer from the boat to a secluded island where we maintain a base camp that offers you a great spot to start our sea kayak exploring. A group of the small bays, islands and Islets are within reach with our sea kayaks. You will be paddling in the vacinity of resident whales, seals and eagles. In one day it is possible to see a number of different species of animals and marine mammals. Often we view bears grubbing at low tide along mud flats or watch eagles catch prey and take it back to their nest. Lunch is served on the island or on one of our stops along the way.

Given that the weather is stable, it is possible to cross the Strait and explore the solitude of the beaches to the west of Robson Bight and enjoy watching the interaction of  whales, sea lions and seals all in the same marine environment. Our return journey back to Telegraph Cove in the late afternoon will take us along a different route than the one taken earlier in the day, in hopes and viewing wildlife we did see during the early part of the day. Often this trip is run in conjunction with our longer-stay base camp trips. This option offers you the convenience of our private boat transport and a flexible itinerary.
