Spirit of the West Adventures is owned and run by guides with over 20 years of experience & expertise in sea kayaking and respectful wildlife watching in western Canada. We focus on sustainability and responsible operations (1% for the planet members, Responsible Travel, and Sustainable Tourism certified) and take pride in the extensive training of our knowledgeable, passionate & fun staff. We stand for personal, high-quality service and aim for offering better adventures in a better way. We take our guests reviews to heart and never stop learning and improving in doing what we love.

Explore Canada’s wilderness on an unforgettable and very comfortable adventure! Your kayak journey through the territory of killer and humpback whales. We want you to fall in love with kayaking and our unique coast, and our passion shows in everything we do.

Enjoy an eco-friendly ‘glamping’ style tour that is based on a beautiful established camp overlooking the Pacific Ocean, surrounded by forest and wild beaches in the heart of Johnstone Strait- our prime orca (killer whale) viewing area. Highlights include plentiful Canadian wildlife, a unique wood-fired hot tub overlooking the ocean, large tents on romantic wooden platforms, gourmet camp food and so much more help to make this a true ‘bucket list’ adventure. Paddle, relax, and explore in the west coast wilderness. Your knowledgeable and certified guides will share their passion for the area and its inhabitants allowing you to truly connect with this stunning country.

We also offer nomadic-style paddling tours moving from camp to camp each day. These tours see us exploring through hundreds of islands of the unique Northwest coast. Exploring the many beautiful bays and islands of this wild area, viewing fascinating wildlife in their natural habitat and waking up each day on a new remote island to the sound of the whales passing by can only be described as unique and breathtaking.

Spirit of the West Adventures groups are small, and our tour all-inclusive. We provide everything you need for the adventure! Join us for a once in a lifetime kayaking adventure.
