What is the climate like on the Island?

Summer weather is usually warm and sunny with highs ranging in the mid 20’s Celsius (70 – 80 degrees Fahrenheit). Bringing a swimsuit is a good idea! It cools down notably in the evenings.

With all tours we recommend dressing for unpredictable weather conditions; especially rain.


What do we do if the weather is poor?

The best defense against poor weather is preparation. Sealegs will forward a Trip Preparation package to you upon registration.

Safety is our #1 concern. We will not go out on the water if the weather compromises your safety.

Do I have to paddle in a double kayak?

Sealegs likes to use both single and double kayaks on all guided tours, however, doubles are recommended for the novice kayaker.

Washrooms?

You can find public washrooms at Transfer Beach next to the Eco-Adventure Centre.

Do I need to be athletic?

No!! That’s the beauty of sea kayaking. It’s for all shapes, sizes, ages (from ‘2 to 92’) and abilities. We do travel for up to 2 hours at a time and it would helpful if you are in reasonably fit condition.

It is recommended that you check with a physician if you are in doubt about your ability to participate in a kayak tour.

Please feel free to e-mail us or write us and one of our guides can recommend pre-trip exercises!

It is recommended that persons be 12 years of age & older. Families are welcome and encouraged to call about opportunities for special family vacations.

Where can I stay while on the Island?

Check out or Trip Planning Tools for our recommended local accommodations.

Can our family or group book an exclusive tour?

Certainly. We welcome and encourage private tours. In fact when we first started in the business, the majority of our tours were custom made (Elderhostel International, school groups, Girl Guides of Canada). From these custom tours we were able to build our clientele and develop recognition and trust in the industry.

Many of our former clients took advantage of the openings in our Sealegs schedule to book private tours for their families and friends. Today, Sealegs still maintains openings in our schedule to accommodate our clients who know what to expect from a Sealegs Adventures.

There is no extra charge to book an exclusive tour!
