One Day Kayak Tour
This one day guided instructional paddle through beautiful Skidegate Inlet is aimed at the novice paddler. Our trained guides provide instruction and experience that starts with an on-shore safety orientation at our shop. Please check the day before for meeting time as tides and weather do affect our start times.
We paddle a combination of single and double kayaks from our shop at Spruce Point Lodge. Kayaks are assigned by the guide who evaluates each participant’s physical and psychological abilities.
Weather and the abilities and wishes of the group decides our route. There are many beautiful places in the inlet-which still boasts stands of large trees, remains of Haida villages and forts, estuaries, wildlife, sea birds, seals, porpoises, and for the fortunate few, whales.
Our guides instruct you in basic kayak skills throughout the day. Personal attention is given to each paddler as needed. We spend a good amount of time ashore, investigating the shoreline and the forest. Lunch and non-alcoholic beverages are provided.
Please bring your sunglasses, sunscreen, hat, binoculars and cameras, footgear that you can get wet, and layers of clothing including a waterproof jacket.
Our average is 3 to 4 hours of easy paddling and 2 to 3 hours on shore.
