Barkley Sound is a remarkable place to go kayaking with two very distinct Island groups, the Broken Group and Deer Group
The Broken Group is a maze of islands protected by a National Park the Deer Group is an island chain stretching from Tzartus in the north to Edward King Island in the south. Trip options are numerous; on our expeditions we can choose to explore either island group or both on a longer trip.
The Broken Group of Islands is a paddlers paradise offering one of the top kayaking destinations on the planet. A maze of sheltered islands and waterways offers unprecedented paddling opportunities for experienced and new paddlers.
A mixture of private, crown and First Nation land the Deer Group offers unregulated and wild camping on some of the most beautiful islands in the area. Orca and Humpback Whales are often seen crossing Trevor Channel before reaching our 1stcampsite. From here our expedition explores the rugged complex shorelines of Tzartus and Fleming Island. Edward Kind Island offers the paddler exploration of some of the most magnificent sea caves and arches on the Island and hopefully, weather permitting, we can visit the Sea Lion colony on Folger Island at the far southerly end of the chain which can bear the brunt of Barley Sound’s storms.
