River of Golden Dreams Self Guided Experience

River of Golden Dreams Self Guided Experience

star-5
1
The river is heaps of fun. People come back year after year to paddle it. It's a twisty turny shallow flat water (no rapids) creek that winds it's way through Whistlers wetlands. We'll start you off with a river orientation, give you steering tips, lifejackets and all your gear. You start on the lake to get used to your boats then enter the river. It's not just a float, you have to steer your boat around the corners or get stuck in the streamside foliage. Single kayaks are the easiest boat to use but Canadian Canoes are way more fun as you have to coordinate with your partner navigating the corners. We call them the divorce boats!:) We have beginners to experts join us. Often paddlers without moving water experience hire one of our guides. Either way we're happy to answer all your questions so you have a memorable time.

Guided Kayak Tour: Squamish Harbour and Estuary Tour

A gentle three hour tour of the Squamish Harbour and Estuary, exploring the ecology and waterways of this unique and beautiful environment. Estuary ecosystems are comprised of salt marshes, mudflats, rocky intertidal shore, sea grass beds, tidal streams, and barrier beach habitats. The diversity of habitats found in estuaries, combined with the constant mixing of salt and fresh water produces a highly productive environment that is home to a great abundance of flora and fauna. When an abundance of organisms interact in an ecosystem, this area is said to be a hotspot for biodiversity. It is not out of the ordinary to encounter loons, blue herons, otters, harbour seals, bald eagles, and belted kingfishers. The tours are in sheltered waters using stable single or double kayaks or SUPs, no experience necessary! All equipment is included.

Gods Pocket Guided Sea Kayaking Journey- Vancouver Island, BC, Aug 21 - 26

Gods Pocket Guided Sea Kayaking Journey- Vancouver Island, BC, Aug 21 - 26

star-5

Gods Pocket is an exceptional area to explore and to seek out wildlife viewing opportunities. The deep upwelling of cold water and currents offer plenty of food to our larger marine mammals including the Northern Resident Orcas, Humpback whales and Stellar Sea Lions. Knowing the times of the currents and having local knowledge is incredibly valuable to maximize our flow with these currents and to position ourselves to view wildlife without interfering in their behaviours. Highlights in the area are most definitely the high probability of whale sighting and exploring parts of the Marine Park.
