Imagine waking one morning to the sound of a humpback whale's blow as it swims past your ocean side tent. Later that same day watch in awe as a pod of killer whales swim past your kayak as a bald eagles swoops down to catch a salmon. This can all happen on a kayak tour with Kingfisher Wilderness Adventures.
Tours include the four day and three night "Kayak With Whales" and "Whales and Grizzly Bears" tours at Kingfisher's Orca Waters Base Camp, located on an island covered in old growth rainforest in the wildlife rich waters of Johnstone Strait.
The Base Camp offers a very comfortable camping experience and with Kingfisher's knowledgeable guides these tour are suitable for adventurous travellers even if they have little or no kayaking or camping experience. Standing height tents outfitted with wooden beds are situated throughout the forest on wooden platforms with views of the ocean. The thickest and widest Therm-a-rest mattresses made, sheets, fleece blankets, sleeping bags, full size pillows, and hot water bottles are all provided to ensure a good nights sleep. A re-charging station for digital cameras, an extensive library of natural history books, a propane heated shower, a rustic beach side sauna, and a large covered kitchen and dining area made from locally milled red cedar makes for a very comfortable camping experience.
Nomadic five, six, eight, and fifteen day tours are also available on northern Vancouver Island, Haida Gwaii, and the Great Bear Rainforest.
