Half Island Tour

Bowen Island’s 32 km coastline is a tough challenge if what you really want is a leisurely, full-day adventure. Why not paddle half way around and get a lift back to Snug Cove when you’re ready to call it a day?

The northerly route departs from Snug Cove towards Gambier Island, around Cates Bay, over to Hutt Island and then south to picturesque Tunstall Bay. Occasionally, depending on wind and weather conditions, we may take the southerly route. The tour can be comfortably paddled in 6 hours with breaks. Along the way, we stop on a few beaches, have a café box lunch, and observe an abundance of wildlife. Prior paddling experience is highly recommended because of changing conditions in Howe Sound.

Two person min., $145 each includes café box lunch and shuttle, advance reservation required.

Howe Sound

Pasley Island Tour

The Pasley Tour is probably the best kayak trip in the Lower Mainland. A 10-minute shuttle lands you on the west side of Bowen Island where we prepare to launch from Tunstall Bay Beach. During the tour, we weave in and out of the Pasleys, a fascinating eight-island archipelago. Here you can experience the peace and excitement of sea kayaking as you paddle among seals and watch Bald Eagles soar overhead. We eat our café box lunches on a beautiful beach where you can swim or simply relax.

Two person min., $150 each includes café box lunch and shuttle, advance reservation required.

Gambier Island Tour

These day tours include open water paddling to the nearby islands of Keats or Gambier, keeping our eyes tuned to the horizon for signs of Orcas and dolphin. To get to Keat’s, we paddle from Tunstall Bay Beach until we arrive at a beautiful coastline and find a beach suitable for rest and a café box lunch. Leaving Snug Cove for Gambier, we watch the contours of the coastal range rising on our right with an occasional ferry passing by on our way to the island’s beautiful shore and our lunch stop at either Halkett or Brigade Bay.

Two person min., $145 each includes café box lunch and shuttle, advance reservation required.
