This is a trip you will never forget as you ride the swells of the Pacific Ocean. Both the north and west coast waters are classified as four. This is defined as: “Long committed crossings, uninhabited, rugged and exposed coast, strong turbulent currents, strong wind effects, large swells, difficult landings, exposed surf beaches.” We will methodically and safely take each day as it comes and accomplish what we can. The fourteen days allow for some "zero days" on the beach to relax and/or avoid less than ideal weather. This requires above normal physical level, with some west coast experience and time on a sit on top kayak with a sail.
This trip has the potential to challenge you on many levels. As you relax into the rhythms of nature there is opportunity to grow and discover something new. This trip gives you a chance to disconnect and re-set for the next season of your life. There is no cell reception, so the remoteness becomes real. Away from the comforts of home your senses will awaken.
You will be given a 15.5 foot sit on top Wilderness System Thresher kayak equipped with a Falcon sail and all the required kayak gear including a dry suit. This kayak has an abundance of storage space for some luxury items. You will be sent a "what to bring list" to review and let us know how we can help if need be. We will consult with you and supply and prepare all your meals. .
There are some great spots to camp for the night. We will find ourselves on some great sandy or rough rocky beaches that each have their own character and appeal. We will land and launch on river systems, and sandy beaches. There are few outhouses in the area. We, however, will create comfortable options that follow acceptable protocols for kayakers.
We will leave from Cowichan Bay and take a five hour trip to Port Hardy. We will be on the water by 1pm, evaluate our options, and begin our adventure.
