New Full Day Kayak Tour


This is Beecher Bay in Metchosen, a beautiful remote and rocky shoreline on the west coast of Vancouver Island.  The kelp forests are teeming with life, the river otters call it home and here we call the harbour seals ‘rock sausage’. 

And if we get lucky there is the chance to see orca travelling past the Bay.


We are now offering a full day kayak tour with transportation and lunch included for only $130 each!  Meet your guide Lucas.


Launch from this little cove and paddle the intertidal zone looking at colourful sea stars, huge mussels and the noisy black oystercatcher.  Have chance encounters with a barking sea lion or curious harbour seal.  We will stop on a west coast beach for a picnic and then continue on around Wolf Island before returning to our Spirit Bay cove.  

Introducing the new fleet and new faces!


It’s an exciting start to the season when the truck arrived with eleven new Necky Looksha kayaks. Plus getting to try them out are a couple new faces; guides Jeremy and Sam.  The weather this Easter weekend couldn’t be better!  We are offering two tours daily, 9am and 1pm through April with our shoulder season prices.  Come meet Jeremy and Sam and paddle our new kayaks.

Best of 2014 Seal pup season

Brad has been in the editing room and gathered up the best harbour seal pup footage for our 2014 pupping season.  By September we had names for several of the new seal pups.  There were at least twelve and their curiosity and antics amused and entertained our guests.  It is an incredible experience to witness these little seals dive and play, nurse and sleep and when we were lucky they approached us and allowed Brad to get some incredible video on his Go Pro.
