We value the richness of traveling through our environment self propelled. Wild Root Journeys offers guides with experience and heart. We are certified through the Sea Kayak Guide Alliance of BC, with ongoing first aid and skills training. This fjord is an oasis of nature so close to Vancouver that makes you just feel away from it all for the day. Come and recharge and take in the city from a totally new vantage and lets see what and who will reveal itself. We often come across many species of sea stars, the curious seal, eagles, herons and the more rare Orca whale.

I have just returned from a 4 day trip into Desolation Sound with Wild Root Journeys and it was an amazing experience. A long time dream come true. I am not an experiences paddler, but Silke's clear instructions made me comfortable in the kayak and made me experience the strength in my body I wasn't sure I had. Great equipment is provided, from storage bags to tents to kayaks. Silke provided excellent guidance, fantastic food, humour, and lots of sanitation in the time of COVID. She is extremely respectful of the nature we were in, and shared her knowledge of the area geographically and culturally. Smart decision making on the spot to account for changes in the weather, the wind, the currents, she really made us feel at easy even when the waters became a bit rougher. We moved with purpose! Thank you Silke and Kaily for your company, your joy and your ability to embrace everybody with ease and comfort. I want to go out again with you to explore the outer coast!

Since my broken group island paddle with Wild root journeys I knew there wasnt any other way id want to spend my birthday! With full confidence that our guide Silke would practice all social distancing and sanitization practices I felt safe to invite my family. From the start to finish this journey was organized and informative. My siblings had all different levels of paddling experience and Silkes patience really shone bright that meant for a comfortable paddle and pace. Along the way we got to see plenty star fish, eagles and seals! When ready for our delicious lunch Silke found us a private beach to dock and enjoy the views away from crowds. To our delight on our paddle back Silke shared Indigenous history of where we were passing by. Overall this was a perfect day to connect with family and nature and will be cherished for many years to come!! Cant speak highly enough of Wild root journeys and the fantastic staycation celebration it turned out to be.

About This Deal


This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Deep Cove, Deep Cove, British Columbia

Paddling this beautiful fjord is a natural gem for anyone wanting to get into nature without having to travel far. Glaciers carved this fjord, leaving behind the steep coastal mountains that tower over us today. This trip starts at Cates Park in North Vancouver, and heads to Belcarra Park and Jug Island just across from the community of Deep Cove. Kayak legend and author George Dyson, who helped to inspire recreational sea kayaking, made his home along this very stretch of the Burrard Inlet in the 1970s. The tree fort that Dyson called home can still be seen from the water today. A gourmet lunch including seasonal and local ingredients with hot and cold drinks will be provided.
