Company Overview

At Powell River Sea Kayak, we've been offering the highest quality guided tours, lessons and kayak rentals since 1995. With locations in both Okeover Inlet and the village of Lund, we are the company for vacations and expeditions of all types in Desolation Sound. 

Since 2014, we added a new product to our repertoire - Cabana Desolation Eco Resort - an intimate, handcrafted eco-resort located on uninhabited Kinghorn Island in the heart of Desolation Sound, offering the ultimate in comfort, providing the perfect base for a full immersion in British Columbia's beautiful west coast.

 Powell River Sea Kayak and Cabana Desolation Eco Resort operate seasonally from May to September.


Cabana Desolation Eco Resort

With both guided and unguided packages available, Cabana Desolation Eco Resort is a truly unique experience on BC's coast. Inspired by the eco-lodgings of Costa Rica, Cabana Desolation is handcrafted using locally milled Western Red Cedar and Douglas Fir to capture this same ambience with a west coast flair. 

Your very own personal cook prepared creative meals from fresh ingredients, allowing you to completely relax and immerse yourself in the island and your surroundings, from kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding, hiking, or simply taking a book to a hammock or lounging on a deck chair overlooking Desolation Sound and the towering coast mountains. With Cabana Desolation, your vacation is completely in your hands!


Multi-Day Camping Tours

We run fully-inclusive multi-day camping tours into Desolation Sound and beyond from 3 to 7 days. Our guides are experienced, personable, professional, knowledgable, and fully-certified by the Sea Kayak Guide Alliance of British Columbia. No experience is necessary!

Powell River Sea Kayak uses high quality equipment, has access to exclusively tenured campsites, and pride ourselves on our fresh, creative and tasty meals you will not previously believe possible on a wilderness camping trip! 

For those looking for a relaxing kayak vacation, our Desolation Sound Camping tours are perfect to chill and relax in a beautiful environment in an active fashion. For others looking for more of an expedition-style kayak adventure, our 7 day Desolation, Islands and Mountains Loop offers a deeper exploration of Desolation Sound and its surrounding waterways, towering coastal mountains, awe-inspiring waterfalls, and much more!


Day Tours

Our twin locations in Okeover and Lund provide unrivalled access to diverse areas for our guided day paddles. 

Okeover Inlet is a relatively calm and protected waterway adjacent to Desolation Sound marine park. Our 7 hour Desolation Marine Park tours explore this area full of colourful marine life, stunning scenery, and a rich history of human settlement dating back thousands of years. We also offer 7 hour combo snorkel and kayak tours to get up close and personal with the unique marine life - from sea stars and anemones to sea cucumbers and jellyfish!

The village of Lund is located at the end of the road on Highway 101 on the shores of the Strait of Georgia / Salish Sea, and is the perfect launching pad for our 7 hour trips to the Copeland Islands marine Park and the mysterious reefs of sandy Savary Island. 

We also offer 3 hour shore paddle excursions in both locations. Lunch is included in our 7 hour kayak-only tours.



Rentals are available for day paddles to up to a week or more at reduced rates. A large selection of kayaks are available in plastic, fibreglass, thermoform, single and double varieties. We use kayaks from leading manufacturers: Nimbus, Current Designs and Seaward.
