Alder Bay offers a specialized excursion beginning right off the beach at Alder Bay RV Park & Marina. Explore the waters and shoreline surrounding Alder Bay on a 3 hour guided kayak tour or a 2 hour sunset paddle. Using stable double kayaks, these kayak tours are suitable for everyone – even those with no prior kayaking experience. As we quietly kayak along the shore we often see bald eagles dotting the trees and curious harbour seals popping their heads above the water as we pass.
Your guides will be on the lookout for wildlife like deer and black bears along the beaches, sea stars and urchins in the shallows, and seals and whales in the deeper water. Your guides will eagerly share with you their knowledge of the area and wildlife during your tour.
Our kayak tours operate within the unceded traditional territory of the ‘Namgis First Nation. The surrounding lands and waters are important cultural and resource gathering areas for the ‘Namgis and we take special care to minimize our impacts in the areas we visit.
All abilities are welcome!
Children ages 10-17 are welcome with 1 adult 18+ per child.
For children 9 or younger, please inquire at the office before booking
What to bring: We provide stable double kayaks, all paddling and safety gear. When kayaking, you will get wet. You should bring shoes that you can get wet and synthetic clothing (avoid cotton). Bring a water bottle and any snacks you require. Sunscreen, hat and sunglasses are also strongly recommended. If you wish to bring a phone and camera, please make sure to seal them in a waterproof case. Waterproof electronics pouches are available for purchase in the office. The mornings can often be cool and overcast. As the day progresses the sun will burn through the clouds and it can warm up quite a bit, so dressing in layers is the best way to go.
