Harrison Eco Tours - Harrison Hot Springs: 2-Hour Guided Kayak Tour for One, Two, or Four, or Private Tour for Up to Eight from Harrison Eco Tours (Up to 63% Off)

Kayakers, unlike pancakes or depressed turtles, muster the will to get themselves upright when flipped upside down. Float through life with this Groupon.

Choose from Four Options

  • C$49 for a two-hour guided kayak tour for one (a C$100 value)
  • C$89 for a two-hour guided kayak tour for two (a C$200 value)
  • C$159 for a two-hour guided kayak tour for four (a C$400 value)

Before adventurers hop in their kayaks and paddle to the mouth of the Harrison River, trained guides kick off the aquatic escapade with an overview of the impending trip as well as a review of safety procedures. Groups of up to eight travellers float past ancient First Nations petrographs and burial grounds as bald eagles soar overhead and seals splash about the waters. During tours, guests paddle two kilometres down the river and then back to the Harrison Resort from which they departed.

Harrison Eco Tours

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.

Founded with the goal of granting visitors access to the pristine surroundings and rich history of the Harrison Hot Springs area, Harrison Eco Tours cultivates unforgettable interactions with nature thanks to their expertly trained guides and unique lineup of tours. The company's guides pride themselves on their encyclopedic knowledge of all things Harrison—from local tales to area geography to the flora and fauna that populate the terrain—which enables them to provide entertaining and insightful commentary throughout each tour. Excursions in heated jet boats speed past the jaw-dropping vistas of Fraser Canyon and Kilby, and paddling outings in kayaks facilitate relaxed jaunts down Harrison River. Visitors can witness critters up close with a selection of wildlife-sighting excursions, such as the popular Winter Eagle tour wherein passengers armed with binoculars scour the horizon seeking close-up views of the bald eagles' soaring wingspans and miniature powdered wigs.

Overall, it was pretty enjoyable. Our guide was wonderfully cheerful, friendly and pointed out the occasional sighting of a seal's head and a bald eagle to us. But I was somewhat disappointed we did not see more wildlife when paddling out to the Harrison River.

The tour guide was really nice and made sure everyone go out in the water fine. She was also caring and concerned about my friend when her medical condition was causing her lots of pain from paddling. There was large waves when we went so didn't get to go the way they normally take you but was still fun and nice that she took us an easier way than through more waves. I'm going again without the Groupon cause sadly the groupon isn't there anymore because the season is ending
