The Gulf Islands are wonderful place to go kayaking; blessed by a Mediterranean climate
The Gulf Islands is a collection of islands and islets with rocky shorelines and steep bluffs situated off the southern coast of British Columbia. Warm and dry in the summer and mild and wet in the winter. They were inhabited by semi-nomadic First Nations people and settled by Europeans in the-mid 1800s with many of the Islands boasting some 'interesting' history.
There are many unique rock formations and sculptures formed from the sea which we can explore by kayak. The islands are teaming with wildlife; various birds, seals, otters, porpoises and Orca inhabit the Islands and waterways. At low tide the inter-tidal creatures are amazing to see.
Launching from our paddling center at Port Sidney Marina our trip options are numerous. These tours are aimed at guests with minimal kayaking experience who want a more relaxed trip than taking one of our West Coast Expeditions.
