2 Hour Family Fun Tour

Led by our experienced and qualified guides, spend two hours on our tour, paddling in and around the small islands and coves near Telegraph Cove. These trips are designed to be comfortable, approachable and fun for all! This tour will immerse you in the beauty of the pacific northwest whether you are traveling with children, friends, or on your own.

Explore the shoreline, islets and coves surrounding Telegraph Cove! On our two-hour tours, we typically encounter bald eagles, seals, massive groves of bull kelp, jumping herring, sea stars and other intertidal life. The beautiful British Columbia mainland mountains create an incredible backdrop for an evening paddle. These tours are appropriate for anyone! Follow along next to your guide and you will likely find something you have never seen before.

If larger wildlife is something you would like to see, consider joining us on a multi-day tour! The longer you spend on the water, the better your chances are of spotting wildlife.

Trip Features


While we do not guarantee sightings on any of our tours, Johnstone Strait attracts an abundance of marine mammals during the summer. Your guide will be using marine VHF radios to communicate with other guides regarding wildlife sightings. If there are any reports of orcas, humpbacks, bears, or other mammals in your immediate area, your guides will do their best to ensure your group does not miss the opportunity to see them!


Our outstanding team of certified guides is the backbone of our company, facilitating your experience from start to finish. On trips, our guides fill the roles of group leader, paddling instructor, naturalist, risk-manager, weather forecaster, chef, and wildlife tracker.


We provide all kayaking equipment for our day tours. Come with the clothing and personal items noted in the ‘What to Bring’ section and we do the rest. Some of the equipment we provide for our trips includes:

  • DOUBLE KAYAKS: safe and stable, the best way to enjoy your tour together!
  • DRY BAGS: Photos are a must, having a waterlogged phone is not.
  • PADDLES, SPRAY SKIRTS, PFDS, AND SAFETY EQUIPMENT: The essentials for safety and comfort.


No two trips are the same! We pride ourselves on our fluid itineraries. The weather, tides, wildlife, and interests of groups are different every trip. Because of this, we both trust and empower our guides to adapt the trip as they see fit, so you can have the best experience possible!
