About this Tour
Ladysmith Harbour has a calm bay with one of the most picturesque views this side of Vancouver Island. On the far side of the harbour is the serene Elliot’s beach, a well kept local secret.
Where do we go?
Once you are comfortable in the kayak and safety is assured, the adventure begins! We will travel together to Woods Island where many of our harbour seals like to poke around and check out visitors. Paddling along the sheltered shoreline to Bute and Dunsmuir Islands we will stay in the shallow waters and and seek out resident sea stars, sun stars, oysters, crabs, moon snails, limpets and the neighbourhood river otters. When you look up, you will most likely spy bald eagles, herons, oyster catchers, cormorants, and many other sea birds.
