What Our Guests Have Been Saying...

Paddling with Green Coast Kayaking is an experience of a lifetime! Our skilled, respectful and helpful leaders enriched our travels with their knowledge of First Nations history and of the lands and ocean life of Gwaii Haanas. Each day was a new paddling delight, from slow drifts through Burnaby Narrows to vigorous paddles out to SGang Gwaay. Each evening an opportunity to live lightly on the land, to practice paddling strokes and prepare marvelous meals together. Sign up!

It was a treasured adventure for us to go kayak camping with you in your beloved Haida Gwaii. The kayak trip was a great mix of cultural experiences, wildlife (sea, land and air), wilderness, community, fun and (not least) kayaking. Many thanks indeed. Big hugs to you and Brie!
