Our three hour Deep Cove Explorer is a must; an experience you will not forget and our most popular tour! During this relaxing guided paddle which runs rain or shine, you will explore Deep Cove and the southern part of the Say Nuth Khaw Yum / Indian Arm, learn about local history and relish the beauty of our surrounding mountains. Nestled in our fjord, you will find harbour seals, eagles, sea stars and other wildlife in a rich marine environment.

  • Open to all abilities
  • Small group (max 6 people)
  • Professional guides cover basics of kayaking
  • Includes a snack
  • And much more!


This tour is at a low-intensity pace.

The guide will keep the group together for everyone’s safety, which may, at times, mean traveling at a slower pace.
