Women-Only Gulf Islands Kayak Tour For African Mamas

Promotional photo for Adventure of the Heart

We’re back with our Adventure of the Heart kayaking trip (our first one in 2021 sold out)!  OneLove Africa (oneloveafrica.org) and Adventuress Sea Kayaking (www.adventuress.ca) team up to support African Mamas in remote Tanzanian villages start their own business.  This Gulf Islands paddling weekend (June 24 & 25) is to support a Social Enterprise in Tanzania and continue on with the 12 years of social development that founder, Suzanne Dane, has worked tirelessly at.  This is a unique one-of-a-kind ‘women only’ adventure where, in addition to enjoying kayaking and the beauty of BC nature, you will experience some Tanzanian cuisine, African music and a few cultural treats and storytelling.

Tour price is only $399 (plus gst) and you will receive a tax donation receipt for $175 that goes directly to support the Mamas.  You can decide where you would like your donation to go … sponsoring a woman at the Empowerment one day workshop or buy a cow or goat (you get to name ‘em). 

Bond with other heartfelt women, celebrate helping our Sisters across the waters to rise above their extreme poverty and have fun, all at the same time. Call 250.755.6702 or email Jan at adventuress@shaw.ca for more information and to be part of this exciting venture!  Book early. Limited to 10 women.
