Active Sightseeing. Family Kayak with Whales, 4 Days

Family Kayak with Whales, 6 Days


Vancouver, BC return


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.
