July 2, 2021

Dear friends and customers,

Like many of you, we are excited about the regulation changes that came into effect on July 1. The changes bring us one step closer to operating our trips normally. Provincial regulations no longer require masks to be worn at any point of our trips, but we reserve the right to enforce a mask wearing and physical distancing policy if we feel it is justified by current conditions. We ask that you bring several reusable masks along on the trip, and encourage you to use them at your discretion.

Above all, we want to ensure that everyone (participants and guides) feels safe on our trips, and are committed to making changes necessary to ensure physical distancing and mask wearing around any individuals that wish it.

We also still require the following for all participants:

  1. ย All participants will be required to read and agree to our Covid 19 policies prior to joining the trip.
  2. All participants that are able/of age must receive a Covid 19 vaccine, preferably 14 days prior to trip start.

Note that most of our trips are full, or nearly full, and we recommend getting in touch soon if you’d like to paddle with us this season.

Due to current border closures, it remains uncertain whether international borders will re-open prior to the end of the season. As a result, we are regrettably not taking reservations from international customers at this time. We will be happy to put you on a waiting list for any trip you like and get in touch if borders re-open.

Finally, although it is our intention and expectation that trips will run as advertised, we reserve the right to modify trip route, structure, timing or even cancel trips altogether if we feel that we cannot offer them in a safe manner. We hope that this won’t be the case, but Covid 19 has taught us to expect the unexpected.

Discovery Islands Lodge is open for full-lodge private bookings only. See the website for more information.
