Trip Dates

Adventuress is open from  March to Thanksgiving with covid-safe guidelines in place for the safety of our guests and staff.  So if the weather is fine and you feel like paddling, give us a call!   If you wish to kayak on an alternative date from those listed, feel free to call and reserve a time more suitable for you.

Book your own private tour, no additional cost!  Bring your friends, family members, or work buddies and create your own tour.    People are already starting to book their 2021  multi-day tour for their  group.   It is best to reserve early to get the dates you want for your group’s availability and the dates are still open with Adventuress….the season goes fast!! Call Jan to reserve 250.755.6702 or 1.866.955.6702 (toll free) or adventuress@shaw.ca.

March 2021
This month is especially good to come on a Sea Lion Tour.  The herring are running and sometimes we can see up to 300 sea lions (and more!) on the haul-out.  They cavort and play and swim the waters to feed on herring. A great family tour!   As always, Adventuress adheres to wildlife viewing protocols keeping our distance to minimize impact. Rentals are also available  starting this month if you have ocean kayaking experience.  

It is still early in the season, so feel free to e-mail and book your choice of tour if it is not listed or to paddle on days that a tour is not listed.

We can have wonderful weather here on Vancouver Island in April.  Getting a head start on Spring.  Our launch locations are tidal dependent, so times will vary according to when the tide is high.  As well, these are suggested tours each day.  If you would like another tour on a particular day, please call  or e-mail to arrange.  If that tour is not already booked, we can change it to another tour. Celebrate Easter with your family and join us for the Sea Lion Tours on the weekend of 2nd-4th.   Double kayaks are available for parents to paddle with younger ones in the front.

Time to gear up for lessons… we begin our lessons with the 2.5 hour Discover Kayaking lesson on April 3rd and 18th… a gentle introduction to the sport of kayaking.  On April 17th, we offer our full day Paddle Canada Certified Course for Beginners and for those who already have some kayaking skills under their belt, the Level 1 Paddle Canada course on April 24 & 25th.  See Lessons for more details.

Paddling Beautiful BC

September 2021
Beautiful paddling weather.. a fine time of year to kayak a 2 or 3.5 hour day trip. The California Sea Lions are slowly making their way back to their fall and winter home here as the month progresses.  Our last two multi-day adventures for the season… don’t miss out!  Join us for the 3 day Gulf Islands Escape on Sept. 10-12.  Want a quick getaway and didn’t get out for a break this summer?  We have the 2 day Gulf Islands Getaway on Sept. 18 & 19th. Bring some friends or family.  Or book your own tour and let us know the dates and we can arrange it for you.  Full Moon Howl is September 20th… come howl with us and enjoy the full moon while paddling.

Just a beginner and want to check out kayaking?   Join us for this introductory Discover Kayaking 2.5 hour lesson on the 4th.  No experience necessary.  Didn’t get that training in this summer that you wanted to? We still have courses running… try our full day Paddle Canada Certified Basic Sea Kayaking Course for Beginners on Sept .5th and a Paddle Canada Level 1 on the 25 & 26th.  Always need to practice those wet exits and rescues.  Contact Jan and we will get you out there.  

Tours upon request as well, so pick your fav and give us a call to reserve.  These are suggested tours, so if not already booked, you can change to another tour.  And most evenings, we can run a Sunset Paddle, so feel free to email us to reserve.  Savour these last days of summer weather, enjoy our fabulous Nanoose and area views and wildlife.

We are staying open a little longer this year… come join us to paddle over to see the California Sea Lions who have made their way back to our waters.  Some days the tides are high all day so you have the option of the 3.5 hour Mistaken Island Lunch Tour or the 2 hour Sea Lion Tour.  Still want to practice your skills?  We can set something up for you and your group.   Just email us at adventuress@shaw.ca or give us a call at 250.755.6702 to reserve your seats.  See you on the water!
