Tour to Tree Island - $129

4 Hours: Spend an enjoyable day kayak touring in Baynes Sound with our experienced guides. We will cover kayak launching, basic strokes, equipment, and safety... but the emphasis will be just paddling in this beautiful area. Tree Island is our lunch destination. This trip gives you plenty of time on the water to experience the sea, as well as a break on land to explore the intertidal zone.

3 hours: Join us for a relaxing paddle exploring the Comox Harbour and the scenic waters surrounding Goose Spit. This area is home to seals, Bald Eagles, Blue Herons, Canada Geese & various ducks. If time allows, the group will paddle across the Courtenay River Estuary to the historic Royston Shipwrecks (also known as the Ghost Ships of Royston) to see the looming hulls of the sunken ships found there. This tour is one of our most popular--a very enjoyable paddle with a lot of photo opportunities!

Exploration Day Trip to Denman & Chrome Islands - $179

Paddling along the shores of Denman, you will see interesting rock formations and maybe even some ancient petroglyphs left by early explorers. We will stop on Denman for lunch and the opportunity to enjoy the tranquillity and spectacular views of the area--not to mention the variety of sea birds, seals, and (seasonal) sea lions. After lunch, we will head back to Deep Bay with great photos & memories of a day well-spent. This tour is approximately 4 hours.
