World Class Ocean Kayaking
Salt Spring Island provides exception waters for ocean kayaking, whether for rank beginners or experienced paddlers. Salt Spring Adventures provides kayak and equipment rentals, lessons, and day tours. Experience the ocean life and if you’re lucky catch a glimpse of some porpoises or orcas.
Ganges Harbour Tour
The 2-3 hour Ganges Harbour Kayak Tours are a great intro to kayaking and our Gulf Islands environment. The safe and calm waters of Ganges Harbour ensure an easy paddle, enabling you to explore the intertidal zone and get up close and personal with a Sunflower Star, discover the wonder of First Nations middens, experience the meditative, yet energizing experience that is Sea Kayaking, and have a whole lot of family fun on the water.
Marine Park Tours
The 4-6 hour Marine Park Kayak Tours allow you to get away from it all and explore the natural wonders of the Gulf Islands. We launch our kayaks from a quiet spot on Salt Spring Island that allows us easier access to the parks and protection from the winds. 5 and 6-hour tours may include an interpretive walk at our destination, adding immensely to the overall tour experience. Wildlife sightings are common on our Marine Park Tours — look out for eagles and their nests, river otters, harbour seals, sea lions, great blue herons, mink, porpoise, and a whole host of underwater life.
