Discovery Islands kayaking - 5 day tour


With the majestic Coast Mountain Range in view, this island paradise hosts one of the most picturesque backdrops on the coast.



The Tour

This classic sea kayaking adventure through the Discovery Islands offers everything one would want in a kayak tour: a variety of waterways, scenic surroundings, magical coastline, abundant wildlife, island culture, and places of solitude.


The Experience

Experience the natural phenomenon of the ever changing currents of these narrow passageways. Camp under the stars on a small island and savour the tranquility of the delightful Octopus Islands. Hikes up to pristine lakes will allow us to stretch our legs and enjoy refreshing dips in crystal clear spring waters. We feel that this tour is truly a classic!


The Dals Porpoise
The fastest swimming mammal on earth.
We may also see white sided dolphins as well as Harbour porpoises on this tour.


The Area

Nestled between Vancouver Island and the mainland Coast Mountains, the Discovery Islands are becoming a popular kayaking destination for all levels of paddlers. Still unscathed by large numbers of kayakers, this area offers an endless amount of exploring for the adventurous paddler.

Situated in the northern reaches of the Strait of Georgia we are blessed with some of the best weather on the coast making this suitable for year round kayaking. One of the most impressive features of this area is the tidal currents found at Surge Narrows. These waters can be treacherous to pass at full flood, but at slack tide we will guide you safely through this passage, enabling us to view the spectacular inter tidal life of these nutrient rich waters.


Our Campsites

Our campsites are carefully selected on small islands either in the coastal rainforests or on rocky bluffs, offering delightful views from the doorstep of your tent.

Special notes

The Discovery Islands is one of the few remaining parts of the inside coast where you can get away from the crowds and still enjoy the benefits of easy paddling, great weather and unspoiled wilderness. This is perfect for a relaxing, easy going holiday.
