Alan Lore / Kayak Haida Gwaii
Kayak and Tour Haida Gwaii with Budgies Backpackers and Sight Seers Hostel in Port Clements!
Kayak Haida Gwaii is about far more than kayak tours! Our land tours will also take you into the rainforests and even Rennell Sound on the rugged west coast of Haida Gwaii.
Our kayak fleet is 6 boats strong, with 5 singles and a double kayak. All safety gear is provided and we can get you paddling out in Masset or Juskatla inlet for under $100. The waters are fairly protected and with both the Yakoun and Kumdis rivers readily available there is freshwater kayaking available. Our tours can and often do run into varieties of sea and migrant birds, otter and seals, with the rare whale or sea lion, and of course our very common deer.
Land tours are also available to cultural sites with Haida Canoes, bark stripping, test holes and other pieces of art and culture left in the woods. Artifacts from logging practices hundreds of years ago are also evident as we walk the sides of the Yakoun River watching eagle's play and otters fish. We’ll drive through the lush rainforest of the Datleman Valley and walk alongside the Kumdis River into the rich wildlife habitat of the Kumdis slough.
Our guiding outfit is both educational, fun, and adventurous.
Full day price (8-10 hours) $125
