Sea kayaking Vancouver Island Information

Coast Mountain Expeditions offers sea kayaking Vancouver island, lodge based, and BC kayak camping tours for adventurous people of all ages and abilities. Our Vancouver Island kayak eco tours depart from our Canadian wilderness kayak lodge locations on Quadra Island and Read Island, one of the outer Discovery Islands near Vancouver Island, British Columbia.

The BC coast is where sea kayaking has experienced its’ rebirth and we are proud to have helped grow the popularity of natural wilderness trips and low impact kayak camping since 1987. Experiencing west coast Canada’s wildlife up-close is just one of many adventures in a sea kayaking Vancouver Island journey but the thrill of paddling quiet with nature is beyond words.

We hope you will explore our website to discover the variety of BC sea kayak adventures we offer… and please contact us with questions or requests!
