About Us

Welcome to vast archipelagos, mysterious, winding fjords, stands of old-growth forest and sheltered bays on isolated islands. This is Vancouver Island, where hundreds of species of birds, mammals, reptiles and amphibians call our waters home or stop here on their annual migration.

Vancouver Island is also home to Midnight Sun Adventure Travel. Based in Victoria since 1995, we are a registered inbound tour operator, licensed by the British Columbia Consumer Protection Authority (#3042-4). We abide by the rules and regulations regarding travel services in B.C. including administration of a trust account for all funds advanced to us by our customers. 

Our services embrace overland adventure tours of western Canada and kayak tours of Vancouver Island and the Queen Charlotte Islands. The company is owned, staffed and run by guides and former guides. They'll help you decide which tour is right for you, organize your pre-departure information, advise you how to get to the location and where to stay.

Midnight Sun's extensive local knowledge of the kayak industry has enabled us to organize our 'family' of top kayak operators. Our operators share the following attributes:

  • Members of the Sea Kayak Guide Alliance of BC
  • Possession of current permits, tenures and licenses in place for all land and water resources utilized
  • Third party liability insurance policy in place
  • Locally owned and operated in the Province of BC
  • Top quality gear and kayaks

Regardless of your experience, we invite you to join one of many sea kayak tours in the pristine and diverse waters that surround Vancouver Island and Haida Gwaii. Whether you prefer an isolated, expedition-style experience, or a tour closer to civilization, we have the tour for you!

Getting Busy

Saturday, February 16 2019

Here in Victoria the snow is dissipating which we hope is a sign that spring is around the corner. While many others remain locked in winter's grasp, most everyone (except for the die-hard skiers) are thinking of warmer weather. And from my corner of the world, this translates to kayak vacations. In particular, our trips to Haida Gwaii, Johnstone Strait and Broken Group are gathering speed, with a number of departures sold out and some others having one or two seats remaining. Please use our search engine to select a date and trip - if the departure you want is booked please let me know.  If the demand is there, I might be able to put on another departure.
