Why Our Sea Kayak Camping Vacations are More Comfortable than You Think

Kayak camping on the rugged west coast may seem like a wild and demanding adventure, but after more than 25 years of crafting the ultimate sea kayak vacations in Desolation Sound, we can assure that our all-inclusive kayak camping tours are far more luxurious than you may think.

Picture this…


Imagine an island-based camp, where post-kayaking activities include catching the rich sunset as you sit with your feet dangling in the warm ocean with a nice glass of your favourite beverage. Perhaps you prefer to grab a mask and snorkel for a quick exploration of the rich and colourful intertidal zone, before sitting down to an evening meal that transcends any kind of camp food you have ever experienced.

All-inclusive packages

No need to worry about the logistics, we take care of the details to ensure your comfort – certainly making the stress of a typical family vacation slide away! This means quality tents and comfortable thermarest sleeping pads, as well as wonderful foods and carefully crafted kayaking routes, as well as professional guides who are masters with all the tricks and tips to help provide the best experience.

Furthermore, our waterfront location is perfectly set up to access the wonders of Desolation Sound. No need to endure a protracted bus shuttle to the launch site – simply show up in the morning and you’ll be paddling your way to a west coast paradise in no time.
