Watch the whales in Telegraph Cove or take a multi-day expedition through Desolation Sound, where the views of the mountains rival the ocean scenery. Explore the quick currents of the Gulf Islands, including Active Pass, Montague Harbour, or Burgoyne Bay, where a complex food web sustains the diverse ecological community, or tour the Broken Islands and Barkley Sound to see the brilliant colours of the intertidal life under the surface, then share a sunset with the birds, otters, sea lions, and Grey whales that call this space home.

Bring a kayak or rent from one of the many knowledgeable providers throughout the Island to create incredible memories on the waters of and around Vancouver Island.
