Full description
Experience the idyllic island paradise between continental Canada and Vancouver Island: the Gulf Islands. These coastal waters are some of the most diverse in the world. See bald eagles, seals, dolphins, otters, oystercatchers, colorful starfish and many more. Discover this natural paradise on a paddleboat tour along the rock formations and remote beaches in comfortable seafaring double kayaks. The day begins with a flight in the seaplane to Saltspring Island. After a short introduction to the handling of the kayaks, your paddle adventure begins. Learn about the way the ecosystems depend upon and interact with one another from your informative English-speaking guide. The high point of the outing is a picnic on a deserted beach. After a 5-hour outing, return to the mainland to be picked up and returned to your accommodation in Vancouver by a chauffeur.
