We will point out the local residents: seals, herons, otters, and
eagles. We paddle places such as Lewis Bay on Coal Island, a
popular harbour seal hang-out and to Musclow Islet, where the mating
pair of Mute swans make their nest. You will see kelp gardens and
beautiful geological rock formations along the shores, as well as the
occasional shell midden–archaeological evidence that native persons were
historically present in the area.
Usual meeting time for the half day tour is 10 AM at our
kayak dock. By 10:30 AM, we are paddling across Tsehum
Harbour, and at low tide, you will be viewing the resident Pacific
Harbour seals, who haul out on the rocks near Kingfisher point. A
great trip for all experience levels, but particularly beginners and
intermediate paddlers. Our focus not speed and extreme adventure, but
rather creating an enjoyable kayaking experience to connect you with the
splendid diversity of our ocean shores and inter-tidal zones.
Depending on time, group preference, weather conditions, tide
height, and guide’s discretion, we may stop at one of the small beaches
to stretch our legs.
Usual return time 2:00 PM.
