Harrison Eco Tours’ trained guides take clients on safe, professionally guided kayak excursions along the scenic and wildlife-rich Harrison River. After greeting participants on a beach a short distance from the mouth of the Harrison, a guide will outline the experience to come, explaining an overview of safety procedures and a summary of local Marco Polo rules. After each participant settles into his or her own kayak, explorers of all ages and experience levels paddle down British Columbia's first salmon stronghold, enjoy memorable sights, and undergo invigorating arm exercises. The observant river-chaperones point out all the picturesque highlights such as interesting rock formations, First Nation petrographs, and bald eagles sporting powdered wigs. After a tour that introduces kayakers to local species of herons, seals, and other fauna, participants are picked up at Kilby Provincial Park and shuttled back to the tour's starting point near Harrison Hot Springs Resort & Spa.

The kayakers' paddles dip silently into the placid waters of the Harrison River, their very presence amid the verdant wilderness dwarfed by the mountains looming overhead. Just as one kayaker opens his mouth to speak, the guide motions for him to remain silent as she points to the sunny shore, where an assembly of seals has gathered to bask in the warm rays.
