  Qualifies for Duke of Edinburgh's Adventurous Journey (Silver or Gold)


A challenging journey of self-discovery in the natural world.

Our sea kayaking adventure will take you through ocean waves and along the shores of ancient rainforests. In the evenings, after a day full of adventure, the group will debrief the day while sitting around a campfire. Talented and compassionate instructors will help create a supportive space to learn technical and personal skills to help students thrive in their community, school, and workplace. This unique trip will unlock true potential and help participants realize that they are capable of more than they think.

Highlights:

  • This journey takes place in Clayoquot Sound, on the edge of the Pacific Rim National Park, the traditional territory of three Nuu-chah-nulth Nations: the Ahousaht, the Hesquiaht and Tla-o-qui-aht.
  • Participants will travel in either solo or tandem fiberglass sea kayaks through class 2 water as outlined by the Sea Kayak Guides Alliance of B.C.
  • Learn different paddling strokes, self and assisted rescue techniques, plus basic nautical navigation, including understanding tides, currents and weather.
Note: Trip details are subject to change.
