Ladysmith Harbour has a calm bay with one of the most picturesque views this side of Vancouver Island. On its far side there is a serene beach that only a few locals are aware of called Elliott's beach.
Where do we go?
Once you are comfortable in the kayak and safety is assured, the adventure begins! We 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 seek out resident seastars, sun stars, oysters, crabs, moon snails, limpets and the neighbourhood river otters. When you look up, you will most likely spy a bald eagle and numerous other seabirds.
In the warmest saltwater north of San Francisco, we stop at Elliott's Beach Marine Park near Evening Cove for a snack, and for those interested - a quick swim! This tour is an amazing way to spend the day on Vancouver Island!Complimentary Introductory Lesson
