Covid-19 Update

April 2021

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


In an effort to stem the growing spread of COVID-19 and save lives, the BC Government has prohibited Non-Essential Travel between Health regions between April 23-May 25th. Essential Travel does not include travelling for leisure. The province has asked tourism operators to do their part by ensuring that reservations from guests
outside their respective health regions be declined.


The team at North Island Kayak will be doing our best to ensure we keep our passengers and our team members safe by supporting this travel order.


Effective immediately we will be screening all reservations from May 17th-May 25th to ensure compliance. We recognize the disappointment that additional restrictions bring but we know that we must all do our part to get to a place where we can enjoy the lifestyle we want to get back to.

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.
