Experience the Gulf Islands by landing craft, kayak, hiking, learning about natural history, and learn so much from the locals. The journey starts when you board the specially-equipped 36’ landing craft, the Salish Sea Explorer, that will carry 8 clients, guides, boats, and gear into the Gulf Islands National Park Reserve.

The Gulf Islands are rich in marine life and cultural history; a paddler’s and hiker’s paradise dotted with secluded coves, beaches, and rock bluffs scraped and shaped by the passage of glaciers. We may encounter seals, river otters, herons, and bald eagles, which thrive on the rich intertidal marine life. The islands hold evidence of thousands of years of habitation by First Nations in the shell midden beaches. Evidence of more recent habitation lies in the weathered remains of barns and buildings that we see along the way. The Gulf Islands presently offer a unique mix of uninhabited and habited islands, with protected ecological areas interspersed among other land-use activities. The Gulf Islands National Park Reserve continues to grow as new lands are acquired and restored to their unique natural state. This trip is designed for kayakers of all levels and is appropriate for first-time paddlers. We provide kayaks, paddling equipment, and guides. We use high-quality single and double kayaks made by top manufacturers. Our safety-conscious guides are among the most highly-trained and versatile on the coast.
