    What to Expect
    Explore the natural beauty of British Columbia’s Gulf Islands with the seaplane and kayak adventure of a lifetime.

    Begin with a courtesy pickup from any Vancouver hotel or residence, then get whisked away by a seaplane to beautiful Saltspring Island.

    The Gulf Islands are located in the Strait of Georgia between Vancouver Island and the mainland of British Columbia. Teeming with a wide variety of invertebrates, fish and sea mammals, this is one of the most diverse areas for marine wildlife in the world.

    Embark on a kayak trip while trained guides explain the sights and sounds of the region. This leisurely paddle is suitable for all skill levels. Just bring an enthusiasm for the spectacular British Columbia wilderness while looking for whales, harbor seals, river otters, sea lions, seagulls, eagles, cormorants, oyster catchers, pigeon guillemots and more.

    Enjoy a break at tiny Twin Island, a marine park with spectacular views of the inlet. A 3-course, barbecue picnic lunch includes freshly grilled salmon, then take time for a swim or nap before a return trip to Vancouver via seaplane.
