Kayaking in Quadra Island waters is a paddler’s dream: you are surrounded by 360 degrees of ocean, islands, and mountains. The scenery alone is spectacular, then add potential visits with wildlife: seals, otters, dolphins and the occasional whale, with eagles and herons soaring overhead. Look for sea cucumbers and starfish at low tide; pull ashore on a deserted island for a well-earned picnic. Paddle the protected bays and harbours of east Quadra Island, or head northeast for some tidal challenges and white water thrills for the adventurous.

Spirit of the West Adventures (multi-day tours)

Kayak with orcas from the luxurious base camp in  Johnston Strait, paddle the wild west coast near Nuchatlitz, explore beautiful Desolation Sound, or choose from other tours. Over the years, many happy guests have returned to Quadra Island Harbour House b&b after a great kayak tour with Spirit of the West. They are always impressed with the attention to detail, gourmet meals, and fantastic service they receive.
