sea kayaking day trips - marine wildlife seals - Campbell River, Vancouver Island, British Columbia Canada


What to Expect!

Your journey begins aboard the Kakawin, our 27 ft (8.2 m) aluminum cabin cruiser. Our vessel has a fully enclosed cabin and onboard washroom. We travel from Vancouver Island, BC, Canada departing from Coast Marina , Campbell River, or Port of Kelsey Bay, Sayward. We leave rougher open straights and tidal rapids to find sheltered bays and inlets where you can explore the coast line at your own pace in our Seaward Intrigue recreational kayaks. These portable yet stable seaview windowkayaks include a "seaview" window ideal for viewing BC's marine life. It is like having your own private aquarium in the bottom of your boat. We are the only tour company in Campbell River and Sayward offering these unique one of a kind tours.

Enjoy the peace and quiet of remote bays, islands and estuaries. See local marine life from seals, bald eagles, herons and bears to lesser known but equally awesome invertebrates. Our boat stays close at hand either anchored or motoring nearby so that you feel comfortable and safe throughout your adventure. These trips are ideal for anyone who may not have the experience or physical ability to use touring kayaks or for anyone who has ever wanted the full sea kayaking experience without the multiday paddling or wilderness camping.

Boat Close By

After a light paddle you return to our boat where we are happy to serve you lunch and relax on our deck enjoying the peace and quiet of your surroundings. These Kayaking Eco Tours allow you to experience the peace and serenity of the coast at your own pace. No pressure to keep up with a group. All tours can be customized for an ultimate adventure.
