As if kayaking with orcas wasn't enough, a free night at a stunning B&B is like icing on the cake!
Vancouver Island, British Columbia (PRWEB) May 23, 2012
The Broughton Archipelago, part of a coastal marine park near the north end of Vancouver Island, is an area rich in ecological diversity, cultural history and scenic landscapes. Framed by a backdrop of snow capped mountains and renowned for it’s quietude, it is a utopia for kayakers from around the world. Waters flow from the archipelago to Johnstone Strait, a deep and narrow glacial passageway where paddlers can experience the wilds of the British Columbia coast, interrupted only by the shrill cry of the majestic bald eagle and a splash from a leaping salmon in the warm summer months. Even the fish are happy to be here!
This unique area is home to the world’s largest resident pod of Killer Whales, as well as a wide variety of other marine life, including minke, humpback, and grey whales, pacific white-sided dolphins, dall’s porpoises, harbour seals and many more. It is an ideal setting, providing the best prospects for kayaking with killer whales.
Spirit of the West Adventures has 17 years of experience helping curious guests explore the sea kayaking Vancouver Island prides itself on. Their Johnstone Strait Expedition, a 6 day - 5 night journey is the only “one-way” expedition style tour offered in the area, unique in its exclusivity of traversing new territory each day (with no back tracking) and in presenting a chance to kayak with Orcas.
Starting at a remote floating lodge in the breathtaking Broughton Archipelago, guests spend their days paddling through the desolate northern islands before entering Johnstone Strait – the realm of the Killer Whales. Treated to the knowledge of experienced and enthusiastic guides, who know the area and it’s inhabitants well, guests are given an opportunity to both learn and ask questions about the wildlife and history of the area. With trips designed to cater to all levels of experience and abilities, Spirit of the West helps ensure equal opportunity for anyone wanting to discover the treasures of Johnstone Strait and the Broughton Archipelago while kayaking Vancouver Island.
If the promise of adventure in the tranquil waters as you kayak British Columbia isn’t enough incentive to pack your bags now, Spirit of the West Adventures is also offering guests one free night of accommodation at the beautiful Harbour House Bed & Breakfast on Quadra Island when they book any Johnstone Strait Expedition before July 1st.
