Kayak Untamed British Columbia at Ecosummer's Orca Camp

Vancouver Island Kayaking with Whales



Due to the Corona virus pandemic, we are changing our business structure. Until further notice, our direct as well as our toll-free phone lines are disabled. Please use email instead to contact us. You can continue to reach us at info@ecosummer.com. If you do need to speak to us, please indicate in your email and we will return your call!

While we’re still preparing is if the upcoming summer season was to go ahead as planned, the reality is that we may have to cancel the entire season. Once that happens, we’ll notify each one of you who had already booked a trip with us this year. You’ll then have the option to either get a credit towards your trip next year or we will refund you the full deposit amount, minus transaction fees.

In the meantime, our website will undergo a relaunch, complete with online booking engine. Our 2021 trip dates & rates will be available soon and we’re already accepting booking requests for next year.

We are looking forward to hearing from you, wish you well and hope that you stay healthy!
