All-inclusive Kayak Vacations

Feed your passion for adventure. Unleash your wild side. Have a whale of a time! 

Our whale-watch tours, guided kayak camping trips and West Coast Trail hiking expeditions offer you so much more than an up-close-and-personal encounter with some of Canada’s most breathtaking scenery and iconic animals. They offer you an opportunity to get of the grid, to connect with your family or friends, to experience Canada’s pristine wilderness secure in the knowledge you have expert guides by your side.

Join us on an Orca Camp sea kayak adventure, paddle along on a Coastal Pacific Wildlife Safari, hike BC’s legendary West Coast Trail, or snorkel with salmon on a Whales and Wilderness hiking and kayaking tour. Our guided sea kayak and hiking tours promise small groups of no more than 10 people, yet unlimited adventure.

Orca Camp Guided Kayak Tours
Our guided kayak tours offer so much more than whale watching and kayaking the northeast coast of Vancouver Island, in British Columbia, Canada. Picture yourself unwinding around a beachside bonfire at our Orca base camp beside the Robson Bight Ecological Reserve; camping out, in a temperate rainforest; connecting with newfound friends over fireside dinners or beachside picnics. Find yourself off the grid but in full view of one of Mother Nature’s best shows. Unplug. Reconnect. Paddle and whale-watch ‘til your heart’s content on BC's most popular whale-watch tours and 3, 4, or 6-day kayak vacations with Ecosummer Adventure Tours.
Canada's West Coast Wildlife Safari
Listen to the clicks and whistles coming through a hydrophone, eavesdropping on Orcas swimming beneath your boat. Dip a paddle blade into the water, pulling back to glide above an underwater forest of kelp. Feel the current of the ocean launch you toward a pebbled shore where eagles soar overhead. Watch in wonder as Killer and Humpback Whales surface within the focus of your camera’s lens. Feel goosebumps rise up watching Grizzly bears from behind your binoculars. Imitate the sound of a haul out of sea lions then hold your breath when you get close enough to smell theirs. Watch in awe as curious sea otters pop up, twirl and dive below your kayak as if to say “come play with me”. You can on an eight day Coastal Pacific Wildlife Safari.
West Coast Whales & Wilderness
Go wild. Discover a land of giants, some over 800 years old. Explore lush, ancient forests and fragile eco systems, one step at a time. Hike alpine meadows awash in a rainbow of colour with no one else in sight. Don a wetsuit and snorkel, and swim a gentle, yet untamed river alongside spawning salmon. Absorb the stories of British Columbia one natural adventure at a time. Escape the hubbub of your everyday world, combining hiking inland Vancouver Island with ocean kayaking amongst Killer Whales on a guided, seven-day odyssey of outdoor adventure.
Hike the West Coast Trail
Embark on an epic journey of the soul. Challenge yourself to a wilderness hike where few have gone before. Trek beneath the canopy of an old growth forest of trees so tall, they’re almost impossible to comprehend. Drift off to sleep on a broad, sandy beach, the song of the ocean filling your ears. Explore tidal pools, mysterious rock formations, and spectacular waterfalls. Cross suspension bridges over gaping gorges in a pristine wilderness you once only dreamed of. Discover the legendary allure of hiking Canada’s West Coast Trail, experiencing life on the edge few others get to witness.
