Experience the thrill of sea kayaking in a setting unlike any other: British Columbia’s lower Sunshine Coast. This small group tour sets off from Gibsons to paddle along the Georgia Strait, with views of the coastal mountains on one side and the shores of Vancouver Island on the other. The gentle waters are perfect for beginners, the stunning scenery make it great for everyone.

Cruise along the Sunshine Coast on a sight seeing boat trip through Howe Sound. See the abundant wildlife that calls the forests of the coast home, and revel in the stunning views. During the approximately 2-hour tour, you’ll be treated to mountain landscapes and rugged island coasts. This is a trip to remember.
