Covid-19 Update

July 2021

How do the new BC public health orders affect your tour?

BC has now entered Step 3 of BC’s 4-Step Restart Plan. Recreational and leisure travel throughout the province is still encouraged and we are now welcoming all Canadians to come and join us in Telegraph Cove.

Before you travel within BC, please visit Hello BC’s Know Before You Go page for the most updated information regarding travel within the province. We will continue to accept all bookings beyond July. Please review our cancellation agreement for more information about booking your trip.

At this time, masks are still recommended in all indoor areas, for everyone 12 years old and older, who are not yet fully vaccinated yet. Our employees will continue to wear masks in our office and retail space, but guests can use a mask at their own discretion. Masks are also now optional while on any kayaking trips, for guests and for guides.

Our Promise for 2021

We will continue to run tours at the industry standard of a 6:1 or 12:2, guests to guide. All of our gear and equipment is thoroughly washed and sanitized between uses and we will be increasing our cleaning schedule in communal spaces. On multi-day trips, our incredible guides will provide additional training for guests on proper camp sanitation. Both on land and on our tours, we will be offering additional access to sanitation with increased number of stations and supplies.

We have also modified our cancellation policy to give you more flexibility when booking your vacation. Reserve your spots, and rest easy knowing you can change your travel dates if necessary!

We are also excited to announce a partnership with our sister company, Prince of Whales Whale & Marine Wildlife Adventures, to offer a Whale Sightings Guarantee on select tours.

North Island Kayak will continue to focus on promoting a healthy and active lifestyle. We invite our guests to experience Telegraph Cove’s famous wildlife and incredible wilderness. As we continue dead-reckoning through these challenging times, we ask our community to remain unified and vigilant. Wash your hands and call your neighbours – every action counts.

Should you have any questions or concerns, please do no hesitate to contact us.
