The four-hour tour is geared toward beginner and intermediate paddlers and glides through sheltered waters, small channels, and intertidal zones. Participants should bring lunch or a snack.

The Inner Beauty tour, geared toward beginners and children aged 7 or older, sets out on the placid waters of Tsehum Harbour, cruising by scenic beaches and coves. On the harbour’s north shore, paddlers often encounter harbour seals.

Both tours include a basic lesson on paddling strokes and embark in groups of four or more. For more information, see what to bring and the tour photo galleries.

A Paddle in the Park Kayaking

Kayaks were originally built by hunters hoping to sneak up on their prey. On A Paddle in the Park Kayaking’s guided tours, passengers use the boats for a similarly furtive purpose, sneaking up on wildlife such as harbour seals and mute swans—but nowadays, the goal is usually to snap candid pictures of the diverse flora and fauna.

Photography is encouraged on the scenic tours, which explore the archipelago of gulf islands near Sidney, British Columbia, surrounded by clear shallows, kelp gardens, and plentiful wildlife. The varied tours range from a sunset trip, which showcases views of Mount Baker, to a full-day tour that highlights impressive rock formations rather than the most common rock formation, a pebble stuck in a shoe's heel. Kayak rentals complement the tours, allowing for independent exploration, and lessons cover topics from paddling basics to self-rescue.
