This expedition will travel through the traditional territory of three Nuu- chah- nulth Nations: the Ahousaht, the Hesquiaht and the Tla-o-qui-aht Peoples, who have inhabited the land for time immemorial. Your group will move through the islands and inlets of one of Canada’s eighteen UNESCO Biosphere Reserves, camping on sandy beaches on the edge of ancient rainforests, enjoying west coast sunsets.

Sea kayaking: You will travel in either solo or tandem fibreglass sea kayaks through class 2 water as outlined by the Sea Kayak Guides Alliance of B.C. During the expedition, your instructors will teach you paddling strokes, self and assisted rescue techniques, plus basic nautical navigation, including understanding tides, currents and weather.
