Family Kayak with Whales

6 days  ·  Vancouver, B.C. return  ·  Easy

Designed for families with children aged 6 to 14, this kayak trip involves three days of kayaking and three nights of comfortable camping at our family base camp. Searching under rocks for crabs, watching humpback whales feed on a school of small fish, or being surprised as a harbor seal pops up next to their kayak are all memories children cherish for a lifetime. On the fourth day we take a water taxi to Telegraph Cove to visit the Whale Interpretive Centre.
