The coast of British Columbia is one of the top sea kayaking destinations in the world. Paddlers can find a diverse range of regions to explore; from tidal rapids and open ocean coasts to impossibly deep fjords and mazes of islands. Have a look at some of our shorter trips on Vancouver Island or check out the Central Coast and Queen Charlotte Sound page to read about our nearly three month expedition in 2017.
