Queen Charlotte Strait Our kayak tours of Queen Charlotte Strait have quickly become a favourite with our guests due to the rich inter-tidal and marine mammal life found combined with the remoteness of this area.

Queen Charlotte Strait lies between Vancouver Island's uninhabited north-eastern coastline and the snow-capped mountains of mainland British Columbia. It contains a ruggedly beautiful maze of islands and channels with narrow, constricted passages, fjord-like inlets, large islands and a tangled maze of tiny, weather-beaten islets. Queen Charlotte StraitThis area includes Broughton Archipelago, a region noted for its rich aboriginal habitation, such as Mamaliculla, an abandoned native village on Village Island. Broughton Archipelago Provincial Marine Park encompasses dozens of undeveloped islands and islets situated at the mouth of Knight Inlet on the west side of Queen Charlotte Strait.

 A number of our kayak tours explore these and many other islands that lie between Vancouver Island and the mainland. Our kayak tours also cross the Strait to the Central Coast of British Columbia, an area that lies in the southern portion of the Queen Charlotte StraitGreat Bear Rainforest, one of the last great wildlife refuges in North America.

Some of the large mammals we often see as we kayak Queen Charlotte Strait include humpback whales, Minke whales, Pacific white sided dolphins, Dall's porpoises, sea lions and Orcas. The inter-tidal life (sea stars, anemones, urchins, etc) is spectacular! Chance encounters with Orcas (killer whales) are possible on these tours as we lie within part of the foraging range of northern resident orcas that frequent Johnstone Strait and Robson Bight Ecological Reserve further to the south.

"One of the Best Holidays of My Life"

Tuesday, February 9 2016

Here's a fantastic comment we received from Ann after her kayak vacation last August, her second Vancouver Island Kayak tour.

Scott, As we spoke earlier I can't thank you enough for being the facilitator in what truly has to be the best or at at least one of the best holidays of my life.  I only say one as my husband is not here and I wish he could have experienced the wonders of British Columbia nature first hand.

I had two wonderful but very different kayak trips.  The first to the Broken Island Group and the second up here in Port Mc Neil.  I enjoyed both for different reasons.  Different geographies. Wildlife and also fellow travellers on the trip but both wonderfully well organised and the natural beauty of this place speaks for itself.
