Additional Terms & Information
FAQs: • How much experience is required to join one of the trips? - No experience is required for our tours! Our adventures are for everyone. • Is there any age requirement? - Yes, minimum 10 years age is required. • What happens if my kayak flips over? - If for some reason your kayak flips over, all of our guides have ample practice time on the water with rescue procedures, in order to quickly and efficiently get you back in your boat. At this point we will take you to the nearest shore to change into some warm cozy clothing and carry on with our journey. While we are out on the water, it is of the utmost importance that the group sticks together in the event of a capsize or change of route plan. • What if the weather turns bad? Will I be comfortable and warm? - Our weather in the Pacific Northwest is generally pleasant from May through until the end of September. The temperature will vary slightly depending on which area you visit. For example if you visit Desolation Sound or the Discovery Islands it is not uncommon in mid summer to savor a swim in the refreshing waters in order to cool off. Johnstone Strait or Bute Inlet being a little further north and more exposed to weather will have cooler temperatures. Although it is uncommon, it can rain in the summer. • Can I go fishing? And, do I need a license? - Yes - you can fish from on shore and from your kayak. Some tours camp adjacent to small streams, so both salt and fresh water fishing is available. - Fishing licenses are required. Depending on whether you are fishing in salt water or fresh water you will need either a federal or provincial license. Licenses can be obtained from most local sports shops. • Where do we wash? Are there toilets? - For those wanting to wash up, you have the option of using small streams, the ocean, or one of the fresh water lakes that we may visit. For washing in the lakes we do not suggest using any cleansing agents, but if you do please use biodegradable environmentally friendly brands.
