Okeover Day Tours

Explore the protected waters of Desolation Sound Marine Park

Join a sea kayak day tour in beautiful, protected Okeover Inlet & learn more about this fascinating part of coastal British Columbia

Our historic Okeover Inlet location is 30 kilometres north of Powell River on the doorstep of Desolation Sound and is the launch site for our classic Okeover kayak tours into Desolation Sound Marine Park, one of the premier kayaking destinations on the British Columbia coast.

Okeover Inlet is home to a vast array of intertidal marine life. Its warm, nutrient rich waters feed colourful sea stars, spiny red sea urchins, sea cucumbers, clusters of anemones and kelp crabs, just to name just a few.

Our guides are experienced and knowledgeable, and are there to provide more than safety and route knowledge. Each guide is also your personal interpreter - revealing the hidden treasures of this rich environment.

Why We Recommend our 7 Hour Tours

Some of our guests are hesitant to commit to a longer tour, worried that 7 hours is a long time to spend sitting in a kayak. Believe us, we understand! For this reason, we have designed our 7 hour tours to combine a nice blend of kayaking with generous time to enjoy good food and a stretch to re-energize before getting back in the kayak and paddling home.

In addition, our 7 hour tours allow our guests to paddle deeper into the marine park and immerse more fully in the experience. Guests who join our 7 hour Okeover kayak tours often remark that the day's paddling was far less strenuous than they feared, and that they would never have gained as much knowledge of the local culture, history, and natural environment if they had opted for the shorter duration.
