Canoe Trips

Want to get out for a paddle with a skilled guide so that you can focus on enjoying the views? Our canoe trips are based on a half day or a full day on the water. We can paddle a local lake surrounded by mountains or explore the salty shoreline of Kaien Island. Even river trips can be arranged by request. We provide all necessary gear for a safe trip as well as snacks on half-day trips and lunch if we're out all day. *We are currently switching over our booking system. Please call or email to plan your trip.

Private Canoe Guiding

We are available for privately guided canoe trips. If you are interested in a customized trip with only yourself, your chosen group and a guide, get in touch for a planning session! Location of trips will be determined by your interests, weather and environmental conditions. We can guide you through Provincial Parks, lakes, ocean and river environments. Typically, these are very small group trips (1-3 guests) but larger groups may be able to be accomodated. Just ask!

With small groups, we often use our 20ft canoe, so that everyone paddles together and experience is not required. 


Lelu Island Circumnavigation - Ocean Canoe Tour (1/2 day)- Our most popular canoe tour!
On this trip, we travel through diverse environments: from the sheltered Porpoise harbour through backchannels to the mouth of the Skeena River and enjoy a little exposure to the wildly-beautiful Chatham Sound where you feel remote even on a short, half-day trip. This is our tour with the best chances of seeing wildlife. In this tour we can take up to 3 clients in one 20-foot canoe with the guide so they need not be experienced. Larger groups may be accommodated pending availability. 

Cost for a solo traveler is $375 or $187.50 per person when there are 2 or more guests. 

This includes a private guide, basic instruction, transportation to and from lodging, snacks, drinks, all safety and paddling gear including drybags for personal items. 

Approximately 3-4 hours doorstep-to-doorstep.
